Badlands

Marty's second release in two months makes clear that the man is in the midst of a stunningly prolific creative renaissance. August's magnificent Souls' Chapel found Marty returning to the Mississippi gospel of his youth, while Badlands embraces another topic that's clearly dear to him: the troubled history of the Oglala Sioux Indians of South Dakota. The engrossing result vindicates Marty's lofty ambition and righteous instincts, as Badlands continues a hot streak that just might be the most impressive period of his storied career so far.
