Dear Music Appreciators,
Buy this album if…
…you go for anything Jeff Bridges does cuz The Dude can do no wrong – and if that’s the case, why stop now?
…you loved Crazy Heart, you’ve been wanting a full-length Jeff Bridges album to remind you of how much you loved Crazy Heart, and you’re okay with half a full-length Jeff Bridges album that reminds you of Crazy Heart (arguably tracks 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10).
…you don’t mind a little dark/jazzy/nightclubbish upright bass action or dark, churning, desert-highway-at-night rock guitar with your “country” music.
…you aren’t overly concerned with musical genre labels like “country music.”
…you sometimes play the “sound-alike” game when you listen to an album (especially an album by a well-known actor) – as in, “Wow, ____ kind of sounds like ____ on this song.
…you’d be interested to note that The Dude kind of sounds like Kenny Rogers (5, 9), Gordon Lightfoot (1), Neil Diamond (2), Mark Lanegan (8), and Ray’s Vast Basement (4).
…you’ve never heard of Ray’s Vast Basement but are the type to look them up – The Dude would probably approve of expanding your musical horizons like that.
…you enjoy a good summary song at the end of an album – you, know the kind of song that says “Now that we’ve spent this time together, let’s sweep everything off the table and put it all in a nutshell for you – an inspiring little nutshell that will put a little kick back in your step as you turn off your record player and mosey on down the rest of this road that we’re all walkin’ together – a little road called LIFE.”
I know I enjoy a good summary song, so if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for me “to get back to the quest…”
