* * * John Hiatt, "Walk On," Capitol. After cranking up the axes on 1993's "Perfectly Good Guitar," Hiatt finds a happy medium with this album's taut, tuneful folk-rock. But it's the songs that put this among his best. The more adept Hiatt gets at negotiating life's tricky turns, the better he gets at describing the ride.
