As a music lover of impeccable taste, odds are that you’re already looking forward to spending the better part of the next hour and several more after that getting rather obsessively familiar with this latest serving of song and groove from Ray Wylie Hubbard. Having no doubt played his last album, 2010’s A. Enlightenment, B. Endarkenment (Hint: There is No C), to digital bits and committed to memory such earlier chestnuts as Snake Farm, Growl, Eternal and Lowd own, Crusades of the Restless Knights, and maybe even everything else going all the way back to that 1975 Cowboy Twinkies LP that Hubbard himself would rather you forget you probably can’t wait to tuck into The Grifter’s Hymnal and leisurely savor it from end to end.
