How anyone can give this release less than 5 stars is beyond belief. This is the greatest concept album ever released, deserving its status as a classic. I'm not particularly a fan of country music but this may be the best album I've ever heard. Every song fits seamlessly in the overall story. Willie's just-behind-the-beat singing is beautiful and heartbreaking. The music is understated yet breathtaking, leaving the listener fully emotionally involved in the unfolding story. I listened to this last night for the first time in perhaps 28 years and was amazed to find myself singing along. The songs are that memorable. If you've not taken the lonesome, painful, soul-wrenching trip with the Red Headed Stranger, take the time to do so. Your life will be enriched by this musical/lyrical journey. This is perfection.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
