Joe Nick Patoski, author of "Willie Nelson: An Epic Life"

"'La Conquistadora' aims high, beginning with the title track's invocation of Catholic and Aztec mythology to tell a folk-rock saga rife with Dylan-esque symbolism. It runs through a striking telling inspired by a death notice ('Catherine') and melodic, hopeful love songs full of vivid word pictures ('Your Doorway Darling') and precise street sketches ('Nolan Street Bridge') ...  part of the best contribution to that storied San Antonio Sound that's come along in years."
