    "Devil" has nowhere near the wit and magic of "Magic Time" (his previous CD). I've adored Van for decades, and I'm happy that unlike some artists of his era, he has a voice that's as good as ever. But it's wasted on most of these ho-hum country tunes.

  1. Pay The Devil is at the crossroads of country, blues and soul. In his voice is the authority to bring them together.
  2. Pay the Devil reiterates Morrison's own musical diversity and flair for making any song his own.
