These are very good times for Reckless Kelly. With the release of Bulletproof in 2008, the Austin-based roots-rockers known for the integrity of their musical approach, the hard-core energy of their live shows and the fierce loyalty of their fans, turned up the intensity on their career. The album quickly became their biggest seller, hitting the Billboard 200 and reaching the Top 25 of the ... Read more in Amazon's Reckless Kelly Store

Editorial Reviews

Reckless Kelly is back on the rock n' roll stage with ''Bulletproof'', their most ambitious and venomous album to date. Rollicking guitars and a relentlessly aggressive rhythm section pound out political statements alongside epic road anthems and ragged love songs. As always, Reckless Kelly brings its indomitable Texas spirit to the new album, resulting in what promises to be the band's most immediate offering of their career. Recorded at Willie Nelson's legendary Pedernales Studios in Lake Travis, Texas, ''Bulletproof'' is a call to arms, an opening salvo in Reckless Kelly's campaign to spread the nearly religious dedication of its Texas followers to fans all across the U.S. of A.

4.0 out of 5 stars their best to date July 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Easily the best of the Texas alt-country groups, these Oregon boys' songwriting and playing continues to improve by leaps and bounds, despite having spent little (if any) time writing with Nashville tunesmiths. The result is Reckless Kelly's most masterfull release to date and the best country offering of 2008. There's no Kelly Pickler/Julianne Crough karaoke singing here--this is serious business, rocked to the gills by guys who play instruments, write their own songs, say something with their music, and can rip the roof off of Greune Hall. Country music saying something? I think that last happened 22 years ago! Nice!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is their best cd!! June 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I own all Reckless Kelly cd's and like them all, Millican being my personal favorite. It has been a while since they put out a studio cd, so I have been eagerly waiting for this cd. I received the cd yesterday, I definitely was not disappointed. 14 songs, not a bad one in the bunch. They are a cross between country, rock, and power pop. They use fiddle and madolin in their music, which really works. Willie and Cody Braun sing great in harmony. These guys rock, do yourself a favor and give this cd a listen. You will be hooked like I am.

5.0 out of 5 stars These gents have something to say! June 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD
You don't often find songwriting this poignant on the rock side of the alt-country genre, let alone on an album that would make great road music. Tracks like "Ragged as the Road" and "Lonely All The Time" brilliantly merge catchy country-rock vibes with some very smart lyrics. If you're craving some political message in your music, check out "American Blood" and the ballad "God Forsaken Town", an absolutely heart-wrenching tribute to the victims of hurricane Katrina.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Braun Brothers Shoot And Score July 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Willy and Cody Braun hit it out of the park with their first offering for Yep Roc. Integral members of the "red dirt" country movement, RK serves up red hot rockers along with poignant slow tunes in what might possibly be a contender for album of year album for 2008. I wear out everything they've done and I was a little worried that they couldn't continue to move the bar quality wise. There was nothing to fret about. You can turn it up loud, you can sing along with it, it'll become your best friend before too long. Extra kudos to Willy for writing "American Blood" and getting right to the heart of things in Iraq. I know some people believe that musicians shouldn't get political and aren't entitled to their opinion. The Brothers Braun support the men and women of the armed forces while voicing their opposition to a war that never had to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars recklessly wonderful November 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD
the more i hear of the kelly's, the more i enjoy. i am trying to turn the rest of the world on to them, but it is hard when the pop music coming out of nashville that passes for country is all that the masses get to hear. GOD bless XM/Sirus!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Butt Kickin' Country/Rockers October 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I first heard them as a free mp3 download here on CDNOW with "Ragged As the Road". I kicked it around for a couple weeks and then bought the mp3 download of the whole album, and was I glad I did. these guys kick some major butt, and just when I thought they were a new band, I seen all their past albums (of which I plan to get eventually). Do yourself a favor and don't hesitate, buy the CD or mp3 download, these guys rock!!!!!

"Bulletproof" is a surefooted excursion through the territory where country and rock intersect, a place subject to sudden changes in tempo and taste. Read more
