JOHN HIATT Perfectly Good Guitar (A&M) Allegedly inspired by his teenaged son’s burgeoning grunge library, this Nashville-bred songwriter’s songwriter scores here with a decidedly edgier offering than his last solo effort, 1990’s Stolen Moments. And while there’s clearly more bang and less twang, don’t set up the mosh pit just yet. Lucky for us, Hiatt hasn’t forsaken his aching, bluesy, balladic side. B+ -Mike Flaherty
