Album Review: Closer To The Bone by Kris Kristofferson
Excellent, Based on 2 Critics
AllMusic - 80 Based on rating 8/10
"From Here to Forever" is a love song, but an unconventional one, written for his children: "And darling if we're not together/There's one thing I want you to know/I'll love you from here to forever/And be there wherever you go. . .
Put your ear near the speaker during Closer To The Bone's opening title track. You'll hear a familiar voice deep in the background: Bob Dylan, a long-time buddy of Kris Kristofferson's going back to their Pat Garrett And Billy The Kid days. It's a small cameo by an enormous personality, delivered in a way that's appropriate to Closer's understated allure.
