Gritty, raw, real, unrehearsed and dirty…That’s how to best describe James Scott Bullard’s: “The Star-Crossed Sessions.” The 1st of two albums released on the same day this year. Even the country songs on here sound like they crawled out of the gutter…but it’s brilliant!…
…Then we have album # 2; “Sunsets & Cigarettes.” An album of all acoustic songs so well written that you find yourself hearing some new piece of genius every time listen to it. Lyrics so good that you find yourself waiting for a conversation to use them in, and a sound so lonesome on each track that you find yourself lost and never wanting to return…
Finally…this is what it’s all about!
To say that Bullard has struck gold again with the double release of: ‘The Star-Crossed Sessions’ and ‘Sunsets & Cigarettes’ is just a gross understatement.
In an era where rock, country and blues have fallen into the hands of talentless scum and big brother corporations, these two records make all those genres worth listening to again.
In fact, there are only 2 reasons for anyone not to own them;
A.) They’re homeless and can’t afford the $20.00.
B.) They’re just musically retarded!
…Most people fall under category B!
As for the rest of you; Rejoice ye wretched sinners, your musical savior has arrived!
