Throughout the late '70s, Nelson 's freewheeling, organically eclectic music was not just the biggest thing in country, it was also some of its best, most adventurous music. Sometimes, it could fall a little flat, particularly when he kept replicating Stardustbut that was part of the charm of Nelson 's unpredictability. With Always on My Mindhe teams with producer Chips Moman and embarks on a period of pernicious predictability, giving himself completely over to Momanwho moves him toward rock covers and adult contemporary pop with this record.
At the time, it was a huge, huge hit -- his biggest ever, actually, spending 22 weeks at Sunday Sunday - Blur - Parklive (DVD) top of the country charts, selling Communicate (Toksins Narcan Remix) - BT - Emotional Technology (Platinum Edition) (File) four million copies, launching a platinum single with the title track which reached number five on the pop chartsand winning the CMA's Album of the Year award.
Listening to it now, all that success seems undeserved since the album not only plays as the country-pop record Willie avoided making all these years, but by consisting primarily of familiar rock covers, it also plays as pandering to the mass audience he's achieved.
This is uniformly pleasant, but it's also rather straight-jacketed, hemmed in by Moman 's sterile, synth-heavy productions. Here, he sounds as he's sleepwalking and turning out product for the first time in his career at least the early Liberty recordings were a hungry attempt at hits.
