Reviews :

« Gram Parsons had a habit of taking over whatever band he happened to be working with, and on the first three albums on which he appeared -- the International Submarine Band's Safe at Home, the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo, and the Flying Burrito Brothers' The Gilded Palace of Sin -- he became the focal point, regardless of the talent of his compatriots. Burrito Deluxe, the Burritos' second album, is unique in Parsons' repertoire in that it's the only album where he seems to have deliberately stepped back to make more room for others; whether this was due to Gram's disinterest in a band he was soon to leave, or if he was simply in an unusually democratic frame of mind is a matter of debate. But while it is hardly a bad album, it's not nearly as striking as The Gilded Palace of Sin. Parsons didn't deliver many noteworthy originals for this set, with "Cody, Cody" and "Older Guys" faring best but paling next to the highlights from the previous album (though he was able to wrangle the song "Wild Horses" away from his buddy Keith Richards and record it a year before the Rolling Stones' version would surface). And while the band sounds tight and they play with genuine enthusiasm, there's a certain lack of focus in these performances; the band's frontman sounds as if his thoughts are often elsewhere, and the other players can't quite compensate for him, though on tunes like "God's Own Singer" and a cover of Bob Dylan's "If You Gotta Go," they gamely give it the old college try. Burrito Deluxe is certainly a better than average country-rock album, but coming from the band who made the genre's most strongly defining music, it's something of a disappointment. » AllMusic Review by Mark Deming

 

"The last Flying Burrito Brothers album to feature singer/songwriter Gram Parsons in the lineup might also be the group's finest collective statement. Without question a debatable point considering the greatness of their debut The Gilded Palace of Sin. But for my ears—with the help of this sumptuous reissue from the always reliable Intervention Records—there's something clearly broken at the base of this album, a growing darkness within even the sunniest songs that the band had to excise by kicking Parsons out following its release and some awful live performances. That's evident in their woozy version of the Rolling Stones' 'Wild Horses' and in the low slung, drooping style that Parsons brings to his original compositions. The rest of the Burrito Bros. keep their ill-fated bandmate from staggering off into the twilight with some career-best performances by pedal steel legend Pete Kleinow and guitarist Bernie Leadon." - Paste Magazine
