Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Most of the songs Kris Kristofferson is famous for having written ("Me and Bobby McGee," "Help Me Make It Through the Night," "For the Good Times," "Loving Her Was Easier" and so on) appeared on his first two albums, 1970's --Kristofferson and 1971's --The Silver Tongued Devil and I. It was a spectacular entrance which forever changed country songwriting, but he has never been able to match it. So it brings great pleasure to report that Kristofferson's 1995 album, --A Moment of Forever, is his best since 1971. Part of its success is due to producer Don Was, who's performed similar resuscitations on Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. Was has a great ear for material, and he always insists his clients hold out for the best songs. Moreover, Was has shored up Kristofferson's musical shortcomings by giving him sharply focused, nicely harmonized arrangements executed by L.A.'s top session pros. Also reinforcing the album's musicality is Kristofferson's touring sidekick, keyboardist Danny Timms, who co-wrote three songs and fleshed out several more. Most crucial, however, is the terrific batch of new songs Kristofferson has come up with since his last studio effort five years ago, most notably the title track, a ballad with a captivating melody and an understated meditation on the way love is both transitory and timeless. --Geoffrey Himes

5.0 out of 5 stars HE feels it in his gut! July 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These ARE some of the best songs he's done since the 70's. I am surprised I have not heard any of them recorded by other artist. There are a few songs on this CD that make your eyes tear up.
One thing I've noticed about music today is that there is no soul in it. Reguardless of the coincidence I have to mention Janis Joplin. She sang from her heart. You KNEW when she sang that she felt it in her gut. The same is true of Kristofferson.
People can poo poo his singing voice all they want but I think his voice is what makes his music touch me. HE feels it in his gut!
Thank you Kristofferson for sharing a bit of yourself with us. I wonder if we deserve it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Kristofferson's best in years December 9, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I have nearly every album Kristofferson ever recorded. I consider Moment of Forever one of the best, with a collection of wonderful songs. Catch the title track "Moment Of Forever," "Between Heaven And Here," and the rocker "Under The Gun." The last track "Sam's Song" is an ode to legendary film maker Sam Pekinpah and is a fun song to listen to. Kristofferson hits his stride again. What an artist, what a legend, what an album!

4.0 out of 5 stars His Best Yet June 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD with some trepidation. He's older now (like me) and I was of the understanding that talent "dimmed" as you aged. Was I in for a surprise! This is truly his most beautful album yet. His new songs are magnificent. Somehow, and I don't understand it, this man's songs have touched every note in a life with its share of sadness and pain, and the desire to grow. Thank you Kris for a very beautiful album. And yes, I have bought the latest and can't wait to receive it and get it on the CD player!

5.0 out of 5 stars He's still the best October 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Speaking as a diehard KK fan, I rate this as one of his best collections, definitely the best in recent years. His lyrics are tightly crafted, heart-felt and as always, right on target. His voice and delivery are quintesssential KK -- deep and sexy as hell. This is an album that makes you wish you could have been there is the recording studio. Sounds like it was one terrific party. The harmonies and "echo phrasing" on this album are terrific...especially the "Between Heaven and Here" track.

5.0 out of 5 stars The thoughts and words are beautiful and memorable!! August 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The title song is an appropriate beginning to a wonderful expression of love and poetry, particularly in THE PROMISE and NEW GAME NOW. Kris's voice may not be as strong as it once was,but as a fan who has most of his recordings, I can truly say that he has more heart than ever in his MOMENT OF FOREVER. I never tire of listening to the words of this gifted and sensitive artist. Each number in this collection will bring back some old memories and generate some new ones. My daughter and I had front row seats at one of his concerts many years ago. It was one of the best Mother's Day gifts I ever received. I hope that one day, Kris's valuable contributions to the music industry will be more widely recognized and rewarded.

5.0 out of 5 stars My life in an album July 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Why do I hear more of my life every time I hear a new KK album.? This is by far his best work in years and I had the pleasure Of seeing him on the tour in th UK to promote it in 95 or 96 . The title song is just a gem and makes cry whenever I play it. It is so good to hear him back at doing what he does best - drawing on a colorful life to remind us that it can be cruel as well as kind , sad as well as funny. Those of us who live in the UK and know London will appreciate Casey. Do not hesitate to buy it if you thought the art of singer songwriter was dead - it just came back to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kris's best ever October 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A fine selection of songs which carry the theme of the CD. Purchased an extra copy for my grandson who was recently married this month, as the songs and their lyrics do tell a story for "companionship".

5.0 out of 5 stars Grows With Each Listen November 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is definitely Kris' best and most realized record since the early 1970s. The songwriting here is uniformly strong, with emotional ballads like "A Moment of Forever" mixed with story songs like "Johnny Lobo" mixed with old chestnuts like "Good Love Shouldn't Feel So Bad."

What I really like is Don Was and his very tasteful production. The instruments are brilliantly recorded, including mandolins, dobros, and other melodic instruments filling out the sound, along with a very active, harmonic bass.

Kris' voice has not sounded this good in years, and his commitment and passion in each song is felt and resonates with every listen.
