Beth Hart "Bang Bang Boom Boom" Album Review & Giveaway


Beth Hart and her amazing vocals are at it again.

Her newest album, Bang Bang Boom Boom has the classic blues feel and kick ass rock & roll beats. Having been compared to a blend of Etta James and Janis Joplin, Hart doesn't disappoint in belting out the lyrics and making them stand apart from her fantastic piano playing.

Much of Bang Bang Boom Boom is about love and all the ups and downs that come with it. In "Baddest Blues", Hart sings about the benefits of finding a truly good man, while in "Swing My Thing Back Around" she's pretty much saying she's had enough and is now doing things her way.

Overall, this album was very enjoyable with its mix of rock, jazz, pop and blues but left me wanting more variety.

Hart wrote and co-wrote all of the songs on Bang Bang Boom Boom, the album was produced by Kevin Shirley (Aerosmith, Led Zepplin, Joe Bonamassa) and recorded with some of the finest musicians.

  2. She starts with sultry blues, hits playful swing/jazz, rock, and gospel (with a horn section!), before landing on a strummy pop track that might be at home on an Alanis Morisette album, and then finishes by belting out a soul classic -- and you want "more variety"? I really hope there is some dripping sarcasm there that I am just not picking up. Beth can do anything, and this album shows it.
