Moonlight Becomes You

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Willie Nelson; Producer (group): Justice

This modest yet remarkable collection of pop, country, and jazz standards derives its emotional power from Nelson’s complete lack of irony. For him, a chestnut like ”Sentimental Journey,” ”You Always Hurt the One You Love,” or the title tune contains a hard-earned romantic truth that is freshly uncovered by Nelson’s simple arrangements and varnish-stripping vocals. And tucked into the collection’s last slot is one of two Nelson originals, the chillingly beautiful ”In God’s Eyes.”
