    Crazy Heart reminded us that the Oscar-winning actor could sing, so the surprise here isn't Bridges' worn-denim vocals, which producer T Bone Burnett surrounds with his trademark chamber-country atmospherics.

    If you're a fan of Burnett's sound or just plain curious you'll find this a welcome project that does exactly what it sets out to do.

    Bridges has talented friends and mentors who help bring out the best in him, which is surprisingly good.

    The ghostly "Slow Boat," which Bridges co-wrote with Burnett and Thomas Cobb, shares its title with a song referenced in Cobb's Crazy Heart, but which was unused in the film adaptation. These underplayed self-referential moments add character to the album and allow Bridges to make it a more definitive personal statement.

    It's all tastefully arranged.

    Sure, this album gains depth from his film history - these laid-back country-rock songs suggest a cleaned-up Bad Blake, or a Dude with ambitions beyond the bowling lanes.
  7. 40
    Bridges' voice and guitar playing are also serviceable, but the lack of variety causes the album to fall short of becoming recommendable.
