We gave it a C+

Spirit may be Willie Nelson’s first album of new material in five years, but the sparse, acoustic sound harks back to his early-’70s work. Thematically, Nelson traces the link between love, sex, and spirituality in down-on-his-knees songs that could be directed to a woman or the Lord. And despite lovely, low-key moments, the mood and pace are repetitious. You may find yourself praying for a respite. C+
