  • Summary: This is the 70-year-old singer-songwriter's first studio album in nearly a dozen years.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 11 out of 15
  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. Everything... sounds struggled over, from his ruminative lyrics to that rode-hard-'n'-put-away-wet voice. [10 Mar 2006, p.68]
  2. 80
    For a studio album it sounds remarkably like a live one. [Mar 2006, p.90]
  3. An album that is not only one of the very best in his career but likely one of the best you'll hear from any singer-songwriter this year. [#13, p.86]
  4. As a singer, Kristofferson remains a hell of an actor, but there is a lot to love about this record. [11 Mar 2006]
  5. One of the finest albums in his storied career. [9 Mar 2006, p.88]
  6. If the delivery is occasionally lacking, the writing, as anyone would expect, is This Old Road's selling point, and in that regard the album is undoubtedly a success.
  7. It’s great to have Kristofferson back writing songs again, although it still feels like he’s only half the way back.
