More of a group record than Kristofferson' s previous two albums, & all the more better for it, given the music a lot more depth & colour.
Subject matter is similar to the other Don Was albums, dealing with his impending demise,the death of his blind mother (!),& what lessons he's leant throughout his life, you know the score. But with Kristofferson's world weary voice, the subjects he sings about take on a much more personnel & intimate feel.
It's also nice that Kristofferson doesn't sing songs complaining how rubbish the modern world is (like some of his contemporises).
I think this also an album that would not have been improved by being produced by Rick Rubin, which cannot be said about the previous two records.
Ten Tracks & a running time of thirty minutes works very well, never outstaying its welcome.
So if this is Kris's swan song, it's good stuff.
