Editorial Reviews

2013 album from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. Over the course of 11 originals, Hart takes in every element of her talent, but also every element of her story. It is, quite simply, a tour de force. The album begins, quite simply, in the bottom of a brown bottle, with Hart inhabiting the brave but broken majesty of Billie Holiday. 'Baddest Blues' completely lives up to it's title, sounding like the blackest part of night. The title track then bursts out like a dirtier, more dangerous kind of Adele song, suggesting more completely the yin and yang of this still-emerging star's vocal sweep. There is little Hart can't do as a vocalist, and she's finally getting a chance to prove it.

I love Beth Hart. Her vocals and writing on Bang Bang Boom Boom are breathtaking. Beth's range is on full display here and the influence of the collaboration album "Don't Explain" with Joe Bonamassa is apparent on this record. Beth has often worked in multiple genres, yet this album takes that concept to a new level. With the blues of Baddest Blues and Caught Out in the Rain, the rock of Better Man, a bit of jazz on Swing My Thing, gospel on Spirit of God, the soulful sound of Everyday With You, this CD is all about variety. Joe Bonamassa makes a guest appearance on the track "There in Your Heart" in the form of a superb guitar solo.

All songs here are originals, either written or co-written by Beth. This project was recorded live in the studio by producer Kevin Shirley, who did an excellent job assisting with the arrangements and putting together a great team of musicians. Some of the players include Anton Fig on drums, Michael Rhodes on bass, Arlan Schierbaum on keyboards and Randy Flowers on guitar. All involved contributed to the stellar sound of the recording.

The overall tone of this record is happier, more upbeat than her last solo record My California. Beth has described this as a new direction for her, stating that she's tired of the past and wants to write/sing about new subjects and happier times that she is now enjoying. Beth still takes us through a range of emotions, yet the highs are even higher. This album is refreshing in the sense of sound and genres, but the soul is still Beth Hart. If this is a new direction for Beth I want to be along for the ride.

The Bottom Line: It depends on what you were hoping for from the next Beth Hart album. If you wanted a melding of Don't Explain with elements of her previous solo work, then you should find what you are looking for. However, those looking for more of a pure rock sound like My California might be left wanting.

While Joe Bonamassa only has a minor part on Beth Hart's latest album, the lingering influence of their prior collaboration is evident. Most of Bang Bang Boom Boom is steeped in blues with piano or guitar playing a stronger role depending on the song. The songs that emphasize piano more include "Baddest Blues", "Bang Bang Boom Boom", and "With You Everyday" while guitar is more in the forefront on "Better Man", "Caught Out In The Rain", and "The Ugliest House On The Block". There are a few songs that don't fall nicely along these lines. The jazzy "Swing My Thing Back Around" and the Blues Brothers-esque "Spirit Of God" have heavy use of horn sections.

Another difference Beth Hart fans may notice is a lighter overall mood compared to past work. It even seems like she is having fun on songs like "Bang Bang Boom Boom", "Swing My Thing Back Around", and "Ugliest House On The Block". On "Swing My Thing Back Around" she has a sassy, almost baby talk delivery of the line "I'm puttin' my foot down." Then you will hear her make claims such as "Rock `n roll's become hip hop" on "Ugliest House On The Block".

In the end, Bang Bang Boom Boom is a change of pace, but at its core it has the key ingredients of a Beth Hart album - her voice and piano. While the style is different than her previous work, there is no doubt this is her album.

I first experienced Beth Hart on the collaboration cd "Don't Explain", with Joe Bonamassa. To say the least her expression of the songs on that cd blew me away and I may catch a bit of flack for what I am about to say but I stick by it . Many people have compared her to Jannis Joplin,, well I dissagree, Beth belongs in her own catagory as I believe she surpasses Joplin as an artist, Bang Bang Boom Boom is a step forward in both her writing maturity and her delivery. I love all of the earlier cd's she has put out and look forward to all that may follow. Those of us that follow her only wish that she was accepted more by the industry in the U.S. and would tour here so that we may support her state side. Keep'm comming Beth!!

In my opinion, Beth Hart is by far the most underrated Artist of ALL TIME.. It's hard to believe the U.S. record companies have ignored this increadable talent for so many years.. EVERYONE of her albums are just as great as the last one. She just doesn't know how to make a filler cut. She just keeping "Bang Banging" out song after song on every album for almost 20 years now..
Bang Bang Boom Boom is another 11 songs that you will listen to over and over.. The title song is one of those songs that you can't get out your head.. The "Baddest Blues" is my favorite on album. In years to come it may just become her signature Blues song.. But "Caught Out in the Rain", "Better Man", "Thru The Window of my Mind", "Everything Must Change" may just become your favorite..
My discovery of Beth Hart this past year has become my musical highlight of 2012.. I want to thank Joe Bonamassa for introducing me to Beth's music on his Beacon Theatre DVD. After watching that I began my obsession with Beth's music. I now have all her released albums, half of which are European releases. Maybe it's a good thing that this great artist found herself musically away from the pressures she faced early on in her career here in the U.S..
I you never heard of this artist, do yourself a favor and Discover Beth Hart. You will shake your head in disbelief like I did, just how can someone this good be so unknown??..
