  • Just like the album a few years ago, 'Fair and Square' .... there was in most of the songs a build up to a good punch line or quip / or memorable verbal observation.

More about The Tree of Forgiveness

  • The highly-anticipated album, The Tree of Forgiveness, is Prine's first collection of new material since 2005's Grammy-winning Fair and Square
  • Rather than going out on a limb, Prine cultivated the themes that have brought international acclaim since the 1970s
  • For example, he can take a topic like loneliness and make it funny or heartbreaking
  • Prine teamed with Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb to record in Nashville's historic Studio A, enlisting friends like Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, and Amanda Shires to sing along
  • The songs are new, although some had waited to be finished for decades, like a co-write with Phil Spectro called "God Only Knows." Another incomplete song, "I Have Met My Love Today," now celebrates the unexpected spark that leads to lifelong romance -- with a dash of youthful innocence
  • The musical arrangements may be simpler than on past efforts, yet his unique ability to distill complex emotions into everyday language remains fully intact.
