Glen Campbell is a music legend. If this album is his last, then it is a fine one. "Ghost On The Canvas" is a pretty love song. This song has a relaxed tone with goregous musical arrangements. This song reminds me of a poem with all the different images of ghosts and a wheat field. This tune is very romantic. "A Better Place" is a beautiful song that features Glen playing the acoustic guitar. This is a song about coming to terms with his mortality. It is a song about having a spiritual faith that I like very much. Nothing But The Whole Wide World is a song by Jakob Dylan, but Glen conveys a wisdom in his vocals. This truly makes this song his own. "Strong" is an autobiographical song about how Glen feels about living with Alzheimers disease. Glen expresses his fear of living with the disease in the song, but I detect a sense of his inner strength listening to this song. "There's No Me Without You" is a song about an enduring love. Billy Corgan and Brian Setzer lend their talents playing the guitar on this tune. "A Thousand Lifetimes" is another personal song about the highs and lows of Glen's life. "The Billstown Crossroads" is one minute of soothing instrumental music. This piece of music is a tribute to a small town in Arkansas close to where Glen grew up. "Valley Of The Sun" is another instrumental piece. This piece features superb piano playing. "Ghost On The Canvas" contains excellent songs and instrumental music. It is an enjoyable album.
