Editorial Reviews

Produced by Music Row veteran Buddy Cannon and Kenny Chesney, this album was recorded in a series of sessions in Nashville. Kenny duets with Willie on the swinging honky-tonk tune 'Worry B Gone', written by Guy Clark, Gary Nicholson and Lee Roy Parnell, and he also co-wrote the track "I'm Alive." Other songs include Randy Newman's "Louisiana," Bob Dylan's "Gotta Serve Somebody," Dave Matthews' "Gravedigger" and "The Bob Song" written by Big Kenny of Big & Rich.The album features two new songs written by Willie and one from his sons Lukas and Micah of the rising band 40 Point. The title song and first single 'Over You Again' was written by Kris Kristofferson and Danny Timms has become a concert favorite with fans during Willie's 2007 tours. Willie is a recipient of BMI's prestigious Icon Award. 13 tracks. Lost Highway label/UMD. 2008.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Willie is a true gem!! January 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like Willie, you are going to LOVE this latest work. Collaboration with Kenny Chesney seems to have paid off in a big way. Smooth, mellow vocals and an eclectic song selection make this one of the most enjoyable of his works in years.

Format:Audio CD
"Moment Of Forever" is another classic Willie collection with thirteen tracks of country songs infused with rock.
The songs are forceful and edgy, upbeat and delightful to the palate and all 'Willie Nelson'.
Songs like "Over You Again" takes you to Willie Nelson more romantic side, whereas "The Bob Song" is a playful romp with a hint of vaudeville to it, "Gravedigger" is an eerie but intense song.
However, perhaps the cheekiest track is the song "Louisiana" (the Randy Newman classic inspired by a 1927 flood that struck an eerily evocative chord in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina) about the recent problems of that state and how the president flew down to take a look with 'a fat guy and his notepad', assessing the situation in as unaffected manner as only a politician could muster.
Willie Nelson managed to pulled off a hit, with Toby Keith in 2002, with a track called "Beer For My Horses" on Toby Keith's album.
Chesney, who shares lead vocals on the amusing booze homage, "Worry B Gone", provides an ear-pleasing, accessible, yet not overly slick sound stage for Nelson's strong, resonant vocals.
The American music legend, who turns 75 this year, sounds like he still has something to prove and, with this effort, he succeeds : he hasn't sounded this committed in years and his distinctive renditions of Dave Matthews' "Gravedigger" and Bob Dylan's "Gotta Serve Somebody" are as revelatory as the work Johnny Cash was doing with producer Rick Rubin up to the time he died.
Produced by Kenny Chesney and Buddy Cannon, the album works so well because the music accommodates Nelson's vocal rather than distracting from it.
Living a full life as Willie Nelson is doing has afforded him some exceptional talent collaborating with him on "Moment Of Forever".

3.0 out of 5 stars Some covers work, others don't January 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
(3 & 1/2 stars) Willie Nelson has been SO very prolific, it's just an incredible thing. Perhaps the most amazing aspect of his heavy output of music is that the quality of his albums is generally quite good. So along comes this latest one, a collaborative effort with country star Kenny Chesney. (Mr. Chesney co-produced, wrote or co-wrote a couple of the songs, sings a duet on another, etc.) At its best, Moment of Forever can be compelling. It happens on the title track, an underappreciated Kristofferson gem, and "Keep Me From Blowing Away" with its true classic-country feel, and even on some of the original songs Willie contributed, such as "You Don't Think I'm Funny Anymore." The energy and strength of those songs made me want to hear them live. But the CD is mostly a covers album (as with essentially all of Nelson's hundred or so records!), and the covers are sometimes pretty mediocre. A tame version of Dave Matthews' "Gravedigger" pales by comparison to the original, as does Nelson's take on Randy Newman's "Louisiana." (For a better version of the song, try just about any recording from the post-Katrina benefits, especially Aaron Neville's.) The Bob Dylan tune, "Serve Somebody," has a few flashes of glory, particularly Kenny Greenberg's electric guitar solo, but still draws unfavorable comparisons to the original song. Nelson has always been able to personalize the songs he chooses by others, giving them his own unique and often fun spins. But on Moment of Forever, it's a scattershot affair.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Magical Willie Moments March 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been an admirer of Willie's music for some years now and this album easily equals anything he's done so far.
I'm not one of those people who rate each track on an album, I prefer to rate an album for overall experience. On that note, this album is easily worth 5 stars.
If you love Willie's music or true country then this album is well worth your money.
Bravo Willie, I hope we have many more albums to come!

One last thing, for all those whingers out there who complain that one track is better than another or this or that track doesn't work, remember this; Willie on his worst day would easily surpass any efforts by 99.9% of the rest of us on our best days. Suck it up you whiny babies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Willie's newest offering should not be overlooked May 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Willie Nelson's 2008 record 'Moment of Forever' is right up there with records like 'Stardust,' 'Phases and Stages' and 'Red Headed Stranger' as his best album.

Released on Lost Highway in January of this year, it's one of his finest efforts. He's released over 100 studio records during his long career dating back to 1954, so I'll let you do the choosing for his best record.

But anyway, the songs here are incredible. His cover of Bob Dylan's 'Gotta Serve Somebody,' the humorous 'When I Was Young And Grandma Wasn't Old,' and 'Louisiana' (which would fit perfectly on a record like 'Red Headed Stranger,' in my opinion) are songs that any Willie fan should check out.

Overall, if you want to hear one of Willie's finest efforts, check out 'Moment Of Forever.' It's his newest, but one of his best.

Highly recommended for any Willie fan. A classic from Willie. ENJOY!!!

I would recommend this cd to anybody that likes country music and Willie Nelson. I got it because I've seen the video for Gravedigger and it's a neat song. He's a great songwriter.
