"Over You Again" should be titled Over & Over Again since the lyrics are repeated over and over and over again. "The Bob Song" is strange, but not as strange as "Gravedigger." There's no other way of saying it; those 3 cuts are simply weak. And "I'm Alive" contains so many clichés that you'd think a junior high girl wrote them. I won't even comment on "Gotta Serve Somebody." It was bad when Dylan sang it but even worse here. Why would songs this weak be put on a CD?
On the other hand, "Moment Of Forever" is subtle and effective, and the tune and arrangement of "Louisiana" is good, despite its overt political cheap shot. Willie is classic on "Keep Me From Blowing Away" and "You Don't Think I'm Funny Anymore," proving that he can deliver if the song itself is worthy. Sadly, too many selections on this CD don't measure up to Willie's talent at interpreting songs.
If you're looking for a Willie Nelson sleeper CD, pick up "Tales Out of Luck" or "You Don't Know Me" but pass on this one.
All-in-all, it's a wonderful album. I downloaded the album while I was laid up in the hospital for two weeks and I listened to the title song, almost every hour.
I was touched by "When I was Young and Grandma wasn't Old," given the relationship Willie and his sister had with their grandparents. I wonder if that song, which he didn't write, has some special meaning for him. And "Gravedigger," could that become a regular part of his repetoire now that he's turned 75?
I hope Willie lives forever, or at least till he's 103, and he keeps turning out albums like this, the aural equivalent of comfort food, regularly.
