It is too much to expect Nelson to return to his free-wheeling 70s form. However, this set could have used a bit more energy. Some drums here and there would help. T Bone Burnett seems to take a minimal approach to instrumentation which explains that flaw. Still Willie's singing is as sly as ever and there are several nice gospel cuts. I would still rather hear this set than the dreck Nashville passes off as country these days. The participants deserve credit for bucking the mainstream. 3 1/2 stars.Was this review helpful?

This is a great cd. Im glad willie decided to bring back some old country. I love old country and it makes me happy to see someone still singing it! I would recommend this cd to any one who likes willie nelson.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This maybe the lowest point in Willy's recording career. I know a lot of people will call his voice 'weather-worn' and 'world-weary' and yeah, its all that. But, when I heard this album I thought 'he's letting his voice do all the work while his soul is vacationing in the Bahamas'. Dark as a Dungeon is a harrowing song that'll make your spine tingle, but it could easily have been replaced here with a song about strained carrots. An album with this song selection should have been edgy and exciting. Its just weird that a man with Nelson's credentials would make a bachelor pad country album out of it.Was this review helpful?
