Great Texas music from Reckless Kelly!!!
On Bulletproof, roots/rock rogues Reckless Kelly explore fragility in relationships and the state of our country. The band`s fifth studio album shows their signature duality of barroom ballads and rocking fight songs at its zenith. " Ragged as the Road," " You Don't Have to Stay Forever," and " Love in Her Eyes" kick off a series of listener-friendly numbers with the classic Reckless sound fans love. That sound is the sexy swagger in Willy Braun's lead vocals, great guitar riffs from David Abeyta, and solid rhythm and backing — all wrapped around crowd-pleasing lyrics. Bulletproof features a superb songwriting collaboration between frontman Braun and country icon Robert Earl Keen on " God Forsaken Town," a song about a person holding out from evacuating during Hurricane Katrina. The grit and gristle of Braun`s voice brings the vulnerability of love songs like " A Guy Like Me" and " Bulletproof" to life without the threat of ever being saccharin.Was this review helpful?
