It's good, it's well-made, but nothing that'll blow your socks off. The guitar solos are off. They feel like Karaoke, somewhat reminiscent of Willie's. They right key, the right tempo, but they don't jive with the band's orchestration.

If you remember 80s contemporary country radio, this album would fit right in. Which is to say, it doesn't quite hold up to more traditional country music, but it far surpasses most country music written today. In fact, it might fit a little too well, as three of first four songs on the album recalled other songs of the period, to the point that Nelson's songs couldn't be appreciated on their own merit. Despite this I did enjoy the album, though Nelson's voice isn't particularly suited to these arrangements, sounding more like father, Willie, at the end of his career, rather than his prime. Many of these songs would work better stripped down.

People complaining about contemporary country and western music should hear this album. The apple doesn't fall too short of the tree with Lukas Nelson's songwriting and performing skills. Surprising cameos from Lady Gaga too.
