Jeff Bridges and his talented band, The Abiders, released their newest "Live" album on September 30, and it proves that they rock in a live setting.
He gives his listeners a front-row seat to his live concerts thanks to this album. The CD opens with the smooth "Blue Car" and it is followed by the accordion-driven, upbeat song "I Don't Know."
"What a Little Bit of Love Can Do" is a soaring, uptempo track, which has a country vibe to it, thanks to its pedal steel guitar. "Exception to the Rule" is haunting to the core, while the laid-back "She Lay Her Whip Down" has a blues vibe to it.
He takes his acting fans on a trip down memory lane on "Lookin' Out My Back Door," which was featured his The Big Lebowski film, where he played "The Dude."
"Van Gogh in Hollywood" is another haunting song, while "To Live Is To Fly" is a well-crafted ballad, which features his rich, baritone voice.
"Fallin' & Flyin'," from the soundtrack of his Oscar-winning film Crazy Heart, is the highlight track on the album, while the ballad "Never Let Go" hits the listener like a shot in the heart.
They change the pace with the refreshing and fun "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star" and it closes with the upbeat "Somebody Else."
The Verdict
Overall, Jeff Bridges and The Abiders rock on their newest "Live" CD. Their music is authentic, raw and impressive. They sing with a great deal of passion and that will resonate well with the listeners. Bridges and his band earn 4.5 out of 5 stars for this solid collection of tunes.
