That's a very well written review.  Damn, I wish had written it.

Iīd prefer the second one, as it doesnīt connect each song to Johnīs personal life. I donīt think that necessarily every song is about himself, though his life experiences may influence his view.
but generally he is writing songs and creating music. in my opinion a song is a story told and not a diary.
the second review puts it right: "these songs are about people with a different sort of understanding of life."

It does seem some reviewers do connect each or almost each song to John's personal life.  Most artists, John included, write about life experiences from stories they're told or have read about.  Sure there could be some personal connection but most of the time it's not a personal connection.

I agree, the second review is excellent!
