  2. 9.0 |   Uncut

    Age seems to have deepened his poetic faculties, these rootsy narratives scarred by experience, but all the richer for it. Crowell's best since The Houston Kid. Print edition only

    For a song cycle that turns around death and mortality, Rodney Crowell’s Close Ties is a decidedly jubilant affair
