  1. If Kristofferson never cuts another record, Closer to the Bone will have been a proud note to end his musical career on.
  2. With Closer to the Bone Kristofferson digs deep into his long and troubled past to bring listeners one of his most beautiful moments.
  3. Building on the critical goodwill he received from 06s stripped-down This Old Road, the 73-year-old Kristofferson offers another sparsely produced batch of reflective acoustic tunes that he sings with sage simplicity.
