    If last year’s Heroes, with the tongue-in-cheek “Roll Me Up,” was Willie proving he’s still vital, Let’s Face the Music and Dance is a legend who has seen it all reveling in the melancholy of time’s passing.

    As an exercise in showcasing the singer’s inimitably laconic way with a variety of styles it’s a real winner.

    Let’s Face the Music features some of his strongest and most engaged performances in a decade.

    Nelson has impeccable taste in cover versions. [May 2013, p.87]

    The band isn’t out to break any new ground here, which is what makes the record such a welcome effort; it’s comfortable, graceful, and uniformly pleasant.

    Nelson being Nelson, this lackadaisy tends toward the affable and charming more often than not. [Jun 2013, p.76]

    Let's Face the Music and Dance displays Nelson in his natural element: a small combo playing songs as timeless as his wonderfully idiosyncratic voice.

    An exquisitely contemplative turn into 80.
