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.

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.

"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".

This CD is kind of a mish-mash of styles. Some songs are arranged in a way that highlight's Willie's style, but other cuts are definitely a mismatch, so I can't really recommend this one.

"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.

(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.

I love the title song, Moment of Forever. The lyrics, accompanying music, and Willies voice translate the song into a dream of memories. Overall, the music is what I expect from Willie Nelson - of course as a Willie Nelson fan. His rendition of Bob Dylan's, Serve Somebody is terrific and his futuristic song about Bob goes outside the Nelsonesque tradition.

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.
