All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Call it whatever you want -- country-rock, alt-country, roots rock, whatever -- what Reckless Kelly makes is great, hooky pop music. It's got all the jangly guitars, two-step rhythms, and artificial diphthongs "I saw the same old streets for far too lahwong" necessary to reassure country-music fans who might nervously suspect that they're enjoying rock & roll, but it makes no real concessions to the genre; when they want to rock out, they do "Let's Just Fall," "I Saw It Coming", and when they want to deliver a full-on Texas barroom weeper, complete with a vaguely Mexican acoustic guitar break and strategic smatterings of lap steel, well, they do that too.

Call it whatever you want -- country-rock, alt-country, roots rock, whatever -- what Reckless Kelly makes is great, hooky pop music. It's got all the jangly guitars, two-step rhythms, and artificial diphthongs "I saw the same old streets for far too lahwong" necessary to reassure country-music fans who might nervously suspect that they're enjoying rock & roll, but it makes no real concessions to the genre; when they want to rock out, they do "Let's Just Fall," "I Saw It Coming", and when they want to deliver a full-on Texas barroom weeper, complete with a vaguely Mexican acoustic guitar break and strategic smatterings of lap steel, well, they do that too. The brother team of Willy and Cody Braun manage to touch all of the standard, by-the-numbers lyrical themes without seeming to be saying the same things as everyone else. They're asking for mercy and to be set free, and they're broke down, and they're trying to make it to the borderline, and they're frustrated by the inaccessibility of the woman who wasn't around when the sun went down. But when they sing "Nobody's Girl" or "Set Me Free," those tired sentiments actually sound vital and fresh. It's also worth noting that the album includes two songs about skiing and one about the Beatles. Interestingly, there's no one song that really jumps out at you. Instead, the whole thing pulls you along happily, with a feeling very much like that of riding through rugged, beautiful countryside in a nice car. Highly recommended.

    SWEEEEEET!!!!!

    This is the first Reckless Kelly album I've bought, and it's awesome. They definetely put the rock into "country-rock," but they never loose sight of the "country" part of the equation either; something very few country-rock bands can do successfully. However, these guys don't just rock out just for the sake of rocking out. Many of their songs have lyrical depth, such as "Nobody's Girl." An album that's a definite country-rocker, not to mention great lyrics, Reckless Kelly is a must have.

    Stop browsing and buy this CD!

    It was a freezing February night in Key West. I was tearing around on my bike at about midnight, after having been stood up by my date. I stopped into the famed Hogs Breath saloon and stumbled onto the Braun brothers and Jay Nazz playing to some devoted followers (and if you check out their message board you will see that their fans are ardent) and a late night crowd braving the cold. Wow! These guys are wonderful! I listened to the CD all the way home and am contemplating a trip to Austin...hehe. Come on guys, come to New England, we need you here!

    Speechless..........

    Reckless Kelly has finally put out the album that their fans have waiting for over the years. This is their best effort to date, and it can be attributed to the top notch production that Ray Kennedy brings to the table. These guys are very talented and you should check them out.
