  • Part of the reason Jeff Bridges was so convincing in his Oscar-winning role as Bad Blake in 2009's Crazy Heart is that he's so comfortable in his own skin he lends a casual authority to whatever he does. He stood behind the microphone as if he belonged, a stance no doubt derived from his own musical background: about a decade earlier he released his own album, the thoroughly likeable Be Here Soon, a record that lightly traded his hippie Lebowski persona. His music bona fides came in handy for Crazy Heart and that film in turn set the stage for Bridges' second album, an eponymous 2011 set produced by T-Bone Burnett, the producer and music supervisor for Crazy Heart. Burnett picks up where the movie left off, cleans up Bridges' Bad Blake act, giving him some finely tailored threads and a tastefully retro production, encouraging him to shuffle along. Amiable dude that he is, Bridges settles into this groove, sliding deep within the smeary analog mystique that's been Burnett's specialty since Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' Raising Sand. As a singer and songwriter, Bridges speaks conversationally, never underlining his points, never treating the intimate as epic. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The Everly Brothers-style 'What a Little Bit of Love Can Do' is the highlight, a pep-talk-turned-come-on from an earthy singer as affable as his film characters."

Rolling Stone (p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Best of all is the broken heart lament 'Nothing Yet,' penned by the late Stephen Bruton, responsible for much of the CRAZY HEART soundtrack..."

Spin (p.80) - "[W]hen the pieces come together -- as on laid-back, folksy charmers like 'Everything but Love' and 'Maybe I Missed the Point' -- the result is as comfortable and unpretentious as the Dude's bathrobe."

Uncut (magazine) (p.81) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The recording, executed by producer T Bone Burnett, is warmly dedicated in the old-school analogue sense, and Bridges gives a characteristically convincing performance..."

This was album was suggested to my by my father, I was a bit weary picking this one up, but I my father and I share the same taste in music and he has never let me down before. This is a Cd you have to listen to more then once. I suggest if you do a lot of driving put it in your car an leaving it there. However after a week or two you will no want to take it out!! My wife Nicole enjoyed this album even more then his acting!! If your an old school country fan you'll enjoy this!!
