Geoffrey D

a guitar god with melody and heart
OK, the five stars may seem high, given that I don't think every song on the album is perfect (I could've done without Pay Your Woman). However, several songs are so far beyond five stars -- Whiskey Holler, You're Not There, Comfort Your Love Brings, Come a Day -- that they dominate my impression of the entire album. Plus, it's a great display of Nils' musical moods, from dirty blues to acoustic country ballads to soaring rock sing-a-longs. And as everyone notes: the guitar work is amazing (but also check out his fabulous drummer, Timm Biery.) This is the best album of 2006 so far.

Nils releases a Sacred Record
Great to see Nils last year in the UK, and this release just confirms that whilst noted for his guitar wizadry Nils has always been a brilliant songwriter

Paul Wilding

Some great guitar work and good songs. A real grower
Nice to have some famous guests on backing vocals. Certain tracks develop after a few listens, and there's some fab guitar work (as you'd expect) on tracks like Come A Day, Frankie Hang On & Trouble. Standout for me is You're Not There - only wish is could have been longer..

Alfredo Ternero Casquero

Another great album. Thank you Nils.

Lisa M Cunningham

Awesome as always. Grows on you. Not crazy about artwork.
Hope to hear some of these songs live if you can make it to Northern California--specifically Stockton!

Chris Hedges

Awesome sounds
Nils back to his very best - all the songs are memorable, and worth a listen

Very Good
I Can,t wait to see Nils alive in Germany this year.
This is a great album i was surprised the combination with Willie Nelson but a very good song my favorite song of the album is Frankie hang on.


More Dynamite From Nils
Another WONDERFUL album by a terrific artist that radio unfortunately won't play. In Your Hands is an instant classic. The album flows really well and Nils is in fine voice. The interplay between Guitar, Accordian and Piano wrapped around the sweetest vocals around is incredible. Can't wait for the live shows!


A continuing life-long fan of Nils
I am finding my greatest satisfaction from listening to this CD over and over and over again. Nils is one the greatest guitarists alive. Period. So spread the word, tell your friends, buy a bullhorn and get the word out on the man.
I have been a fan for life and will continue to be for the long haul. Check him out LIVE. He is always excellent.

Mick Lamport

Brilliant Nils!!
Great mix of songs displaying his wide range of genius. The most underrated composer/guitarist on the planet. See him live on stage whenever you can. Spread the word!!
