    Having led such a big life, Kristofferson serves us a small but welcome comfort in the great unknown.

    These 10 tracks prove that while Kris Kristofferson may finally be coming to terms with what it's like to be old, there will always be a young spirit running rampant somewhere within his soul.

    In sentiment and execution, Feeling Mortal is more Hank than Dylan, yet there's a subtle poetry in the way the lyric flits between life and death, dreams and wakefulness.

    Kristofferson’s voice, which is front and center and unvarnished, is something to behold here: craggy but beautiful and forged with wisdom that comes to a lion in winter.

    Mr. Kristofferson's voice wavers, indicating general pitch areas rather than specific notes, and he doesn't use it artfully to stress images or ideas as he rolls through the words. Some of those lyrics, though, can be dense and strong, working inside and outside the styles and structures of his best years.

    Based on the soul-satisfying evidence of Feeling Mortal, one can only hope there are many more.

    producer Don Was has tried to capture a country legend in his veteran state, but he's missing all the tricks. [Jan 2013, p.106]
