Oddball collaborations between Nashville royalty and esteemed alternarockers (Johnny Cash with members of Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden; Breeder Kelley Deal with Kris Kristofferson; L7 with Waylon Jennings) are the centerpiece of Twisted Willie, a homage to Willie Nelson. Those, and inspired reworkings from the likes of X, Best Kissers in the World, and Jello Biafra, elevate this well above the usual tribute-album fare.
