Billy Bob Thornton - Private Radio - CD Review

Billy Bob Thornton - Private Radio - CD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

What the heck - Billy Bob Thornton's a cowboy? Actor, Billy Bob Thornton can add country singer to his resume. He's puttin' out a CD called, Private Radio, that would make even his momma proud.

Lost Highway (2001)

What the heck - Billy Bob Thornton's a cowboy? Since when? Well, since the actor, director, screenwriter - put out an album of country tunes. And you know what? He can really sing! It might seem weird to some people, but music was Billy Bob's first love - before acting.

Private Radio is Billy Bob's first CD. He recorded it in his home studio which was built by the former owner of the house - guitarist Slash (from '80s metal band Guns 'n Roses.) Private Radio is a collection of songs and stories from Billy Bob's personal experiences and he wrote or co-wrote most of the tracks on the album. The CD is a mix of country, blues and rock-a-billy with a dash of Leonard Cohen.

Besides having the perfect country name, Billy Bob's also got a strong, gritty voice that's very suited to country music. Dark And Mad is a thoughtful country ballad, while Forever, is a low-talkin', boot-tapper with guitar strummin'. He Was A Friend of Mine is a cover of a song by '60s group, The Byrds, and is the only cover tune on the album.

The Starlight Lounge is a duet with Holly Lamar, who wrote Faith Hill's Breathe, and was also co-written by Holly and Dwight Yoakam. Three of the songs on the album were written for his wife Angelina - the obvious, Angelina as well as Your Blue Shadow and Magic of Love.

Private Radio is a great CD that has an old-school country feel. The CD hits stores September 11, 2001. If you're into traditional country twang - instead of this new country stuff, then I'm sure you'll be tappin' your heels to Billy Bob's music.

    "I Love it When You Cry" by Steve Aoki and Moxie. The music is really good and maybe unique. Also, the lyrics are a little stranger than the usual love song, and weird songs are my favorite. :P
