The Life Acoustic [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Everlast refashioned himself into a badass troubadour only a few years after pulling the plug on House of Pain, so his release of an all-acoustic album isn't such a surprise although it has to be said, the Wes Anderson parody of the title and artwork of The Life Acoustic is indeed a shock.
