    The finest track is Lukas's high tenor take on George Harrison's All Things Must Pass, a hymn to wisdom and humility its timelessness reinforced as a country song. [Jan 2022, p.82]

    The accent firmly on the spiritual. The stately "Family Bible" touches base with Willie's early career. ... There's a jubilant hoedown vibe to Hank Williams' "I Saw The Light," bettered only by offspring Lukas's plaintive lead vocal on George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass." [Jan 2022, p.27]

    It’s a tender passing of the torch.

    The performances stay low-key; this is easy work for these artists. The Willie Nelson Family makes sense to play on a chilly holiday night with your relatives around. It isn’t necessary listening, but it almost inevitably does what it sets out to do.

    It's too relaxed, too casual to be considered major. Its low-key nature is also the appeal of Willie Nelson Family -- it's the sound of an informal jam session by one of the best musical families in America, so it's easy to enjoy even if it feels decidedly minor.
