Never Home

Unlike his semiautobiographical last album, Freddy Johnston’s fourth album, Never Home finds him more successful with character sketches than with personal songs about dysfunctional relationships. On such profiles as ”Gone to See the Fire,” in which a woman discovers she’s keeping company with an arsonist, he conveys palpable panic, even with his Everyman vocal limitations. Original and offbeat.
