Returning to the Columbia/Sony family after nearly two decades away, Willie Nelson once again tries to be everything to everybody on 2012's Heroes, an appealingly misshapen collection of classics, contemporaries, and originals. Heroes - its title signifying no great concept - is roughly divided into quarters, with part of the album devoted to the Western swing and Texas country he's always loved to sing, part consisting of new songs from Willie, part originals from his son Lukas, and part covers of newer, rock-oriented tunes from the likes of Tom Waits, Eddie Vedder, and Chris Martin. Each of these categories is a bit hit-or-miss, either succumbing to cutesy novelty (the dope-smoking anthem "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die," complete with country cadences from a non-rapping Snoop Dogg) or laziness, and there's a wee bit too much Lukas Nelson scattered throughout the record, with the son of the father singing on no less than nine of the album's 14 songs. This can be too much of a strong spice, obscuring the overall flavor of the music, but Lukas contribut. see more...

First Season: Amazing. And then... down hill. But I watched it while it was on. I wish it finished stronger than it did.
Season one started off so strong and the show had so much potential...unfortunately the writers strike killed this show.
I can't wait for this to come back on. I use to watch this when it first came on and it was very different which I like
Yeah really, It's Willie. What can be said that isn't good about his music? He is truly a country music legend.
I agree the first two seasons we're good. I lost interest and stopped watching after the second season.
I love this show. Watched every season. They keep you guessing and have an amazing story line!!!!!
Started out good but got too weird in the end. It felt sort of unorganized and had too many plots.
Very entertaining show. Kept me on my feet. Love the variety of powers. I recommend to pass time
Would have been better if there was more action and less lame drama. The concept is fun and I'm glad it's getting some what of a reboot with season 5.
Heroes was very interesting! I was sad that the they stopped making new episodes, but oh well, what can we do...
