Cash's first album since 2003's Rules of Travel, Black Cadillac is darker than its predecessor, but with melodies often more complex and lyrics more stunningly poetic than anything its creator has conjured before, the album is more transforming than depressing, and exquisitely beautiful.
"Omnipop" features all sorts of eardrum feasts, for listeners who are starved for catchy, engaging, transcendent music that doesn't either offend or bore. Beautiful, sensitive, damned talented, witty, unforgettable---Sam's got it all, and so does this album.
Released as a single, "Sunny" reached #3 on the R&B charts, #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #12 in the UK. When Hebb toured with The Beatles in 1966 his "Sunny" was as well received as any Beatles tune. BMI rated "Sunny" number 25 in its "Top 100 Songs of the Century".
