Editorial Reviews

The much-anticipated successor To All The Girls... (which became Willie's first Top 10 album in more than three decades when it was released in October 2013) Band of Brothers is the artist's first album of predominately new original material in nearly two decades, debuting the master tunesmith's first major batch of newly-penned songs since his Spirit album in 1996. "I got on kind of a writing kick," Willie Nelson said recently, "it's good to be writing again."

The influential songwriter--whose early successes brought pop and country together with unforgettable standards like "Crazy" (Patsy Cline), "Hello Walls" (Faron Young), "Funny How Time Slips Away" (Billy Walker), "Night Life" (Ray Price) and many others--has added nine new essential songs to his classic catalog. One of Willie's most personal albums to-date, the songs on Band of Brothers range from the introspective ("The Wall" and "Send Me a Picture") to the rollicking ("Wives and Girlfriends" and "Used To Her").

Rounding out the album are five songs, penned by others, which compliment and unite the album's sonic textures and lyric themes. Included are Willie's interpretations of Vince Gill's "Whenever You Come Around", Billy Joe Shaver's "The Git Go" (a duet with Jamey Johnson) and the appropriately-titled "Songwriter," written by Gordie Sampson and Bill Anderson.

Format: Audio CD
It's hard to believe this is the first album in almost 20 years that features mainly newly written Willie Nelson songs. What's not hard to believe is that the result is well worth the wait. Willie's songs on "Band of Brothers" are kind of like an old friend, they might not have a whole lot of Earth-shattering surprises left in them but you're always better off for taking the time to lend your ear and listening to the stories. Here we get 14 brand new tracks and 9 new Willie penned tunes that he co-wrote with Buddy Cannon that show Willie can still write with the best of them.

Here's a track-by-track breakdown of the album:

Bring it On - This is a classic Willie Nelson song both in subject matter and sound. The lyrics shows he still has the outlaw attitude in him and the music rides Willie's signature riffs and Mickey Raphael's harmonica through familiar territory.

Guitar in the Corner - A song about writing songs where Willie talks about how it used to be quite a bit easier for him to write, going so far as to say the guitar played him when things were going well and how when that feeling leaves the guitar sits silent in the corner just waiting around for another song. Definitely autobiographical as Willie has said in recent interviews that he was just burned out on the writing process for years.

The Wall - This is one of my favorite tracks on the album and it has Willie looking inward with excellent results. No doubt another autobiographical song with Willie singing, "I took on more than I could handle / I bit off more than I could chew / I hit the wall / I went off like a Roman candle / Burning everyone I knew / I hit the wall.

My taste in music is pretty broad, from Mahler to Sinatra to the Beatles. And I love Willie Nelson. This recent collection is a must for anyone who reveres this multitalented self-described "outlaw." In fact, the best song on the CD is: "It's hard to be an outlaw who's not wanted anymore." Other great songs: Bring it on, Crazy Like Me, I've Got a Lot of Travelin' to Do. For me, this is his best work since "Across the Borderline." Very highly recommended, particularly for geezers like me who get reaffirmance that being 80 doesn't mean you're washed up or dried out. Great Stuff!!

New classic Willie. He should keep writing, singing, and living forever. He should keep rolling out his unique view and sound of life. America loves Willie.

I thought we had all the classic Willie Nelson songs already but Band of Brothers is the icing on the cake. Each song is a gem of insightfulness, especially "The Git Go" and "Guitar In the Corner". Willie, I hope you will be with us for many more years to come!

Willie seems to record an album every 8 months. Throws them up against the wall to see if they stick. The last one I bought was the excellent "Spirit". And that was aways back.....Tight and excellent supporting musicians, most songs written by Willie and a co- writer, sings strong and as always clear and articulate, with a wide range of tunes worthy of repeated listening ( some with that Waylon beat)....I especially like the subtle and not over bearing harp playing, a sound that in the past has been too intrusive, and best of all as in his early recordings; the use of steel guitar. This one sticks....I give it a 5 in relation to current so called country music and perhaps a 4 in relation to his best....

I was so excited to hear that Willie Nelson was having a new cd coming out. More excited when I found it would be all new music. It did not disappoint. The only thing that might have made it better would have been the case. This one came in a cardboard case and no lyrics. I prefer the plastic case and the little booklet with lyrics. But I really like this cd. It has some good songs on it.

Seemingly effortless and as comfortable as your favorite pair of old shoes, yet filled with the irony and wisdom befitting one so well traveled in this world. In my mind, Willie has only gotten better with time. Some say it's simple, formulaic, but it only appears to be as it is all formed by long, hard experience in the hands of a master. Bring It On, indeed, for one who has weathered so many storms and realizes that you either face them or drown. 'Guitar In the Corner', an excellent example of Willie's depth, when you substitute the object of any long term relationship and it's ups and downs, fading and rebirth, for his metaphoric guitar. The same with all of these pearls of wisdom. Substitute any occupation for 'songwriter' because we are all caught up in the commonalities of human existence. As to those who wish for written lyrics in a booklet, I would point out that unlike many other artists, the lyrics here are the not the frosting, but the cake itself and are presented clearly and concisely for the audience, no crib notes needed. That is Willie's genius and he's at the top of his game. I hope we both last long enough on this sea to experience more of the ever improving force that is Willie.
