On CLOSER TO THE BONE, Kris Kristofferson avoids the production mishaps of 2006's THIS OLD ROAD, though he works with the same team: producer Don Was (who also played bass), drummer Jim Keltner, Rami Jaffee on keyboards, and guitarist Stephen Bruton, who passed away shortly after finishing this album. CLOSER TO THE BONE's 11 songs are simply jaw-dropping for the most part: some pay tribute to friends; others give props to loss, grief, pleasure, and pain; and they all offer gratitude for the experiences. The sound of the record is close, intimate, and immediate but less shambolic than THIS OLD ROAD. That's not to say it sounds falsely polished. It's an exceptionally intimate recording filled with songs that are always direct and sometimes uncomfortable. The melodies are as simple and classic as they've always been, but lyrically, the man is on a tear. If Kristofferson never cuts another record, CLOSER TO THE BONE will have been a proud note to end his musical career on.
