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

Product Description

Picking up where Under The Table & Above The Sun left off, Reckless Kelly is back with another strong effort-once-again produced by Ray Kennedy!

Rockin' and eclectic, this Austin quintet aims to brighten honky-tonk nights with their fifth album, Wicked Twisted Road. Sure, there's a sense of regret in the opening title track and "Dogtown"--mostly for squandered youth and aspirations--but Celtic fiddle lines and singer Willie Braun's lilting melody makes the tour story "Seven Nights in Eire" a genuine pub song, and "Motel Cowboy Show" celebrates all-night boozin' and lovin' with hot pickin' and a rollicking drum beat. A revving motorcycle kicks off the bad -boy-on-the-run stomp "Sixgun." And there are bad girls, too, like the cruel lover who's "bitter and sweet as a death-row meal" in "Nobody Haunts Me Like You." There's also no shortage of big guitars, growling through half of these numbers and happily rubbing up against the spiky blues harmonica of the post-breakup slammer "Wretched Again." The album winds down with a lovely acoustic instrumental version of the title track--proof that even a wicked twisted road dotted with robberies, heartbreak, and drunkenness can turn back home, peacefully, again. --Ted Drozdowski

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what country bands SHOULD sound like April 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If country radio was true to itself and its listeners, and not caught up in imaging, Reckless Kelly would be one of the most played bands.

I've been a mediocre fan of theirs for several years, but after hearing a few tracks from this CD on XM Radio, I became a true believer. WICKED TWIST ROAD is not too polished, but also not too raw. The album flows wonderfully, from sad ballad, to honky-tonk, to country-irish (is there such a thing?), to good country-pop, and finally, memorable western story songs.

I rarely give CDs 5 stars, but this is a must-have for any alt-country fan. This is what country is all about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Band, Great CD. September 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Doesn't get much better than this folks. If you're into americana, roots-rock, or alt-country, or if simply like good music, I just can't imagine you not liking this. Highlights for me are the title track, "Dogtown", and "Baby's Got a Whole Lot More", but there's not a bad song on here. Can't beat the awesome packaging, either- they even included a board game (see website for drinking rules). Don't pass this one up. Check out their incredible previous album, too, and also their younger brothers' band called Micky and the Motorcars.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet.... February 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm the first to admit that my take on Wicked Twisted Road is biased because of my love of RK's music. I knew before I even heard the record that I would love it. I guess what I wasn't counting on is how great of a record it would actually be. I knew it would be great, but I didn't know I'd like it so much more than their previous efforts.

The album is tied together wonderfully by the bookends of Wicked Twisted Road and the Wicked Twisted Road reprise. Other highlights of this record include Motel Cowboy Show (sure to become a staple of RK concerts to come) and Wretched Again (which reminds me of Southern Harmony Musical Companion era Black Crowes material). The songwriting, as always is great on Wicked Twisted Road, but it's taken a turn towards the darker side of life, which is certainly a welcome addition to Rk's music.

The real gem of this record though are the musical performances and the production work. Ray Kennedy's (known for his work with Steve Earle as part of the Twangtrust) work shines through on Wicked Twisted Road. Kennedy found a way to bring the feel of a live Reckless Kelly show to a CD. For the first time, you can really hear the little intricacies of the music from the mandolins, fiddles, percussion and the bass lines. It's the most accurate recorded representation of a live electric Reckless Kelly show. Everything and everyone shines on this record and it's sure to propel the band to new heights.

Reckless Kelly is:

Willy Braun-Vocals, guitars

Cody Braun- Vocals, fiddle, harmonica, mandolin

David Abeyta- lead guitar

Jay Nazz- drums and percussion

Jimmy McFeely- bass guitar

5.0 out of 5 stars RK has a bonified hit this time. February 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Many of you have probably never heard of Reckless Kelly but let me tell you what you are missing out on. Anyone who likes something a little different than what you hear on the radio and at every little bar will love this album. It has a mix of everything from slow "countryesque" ballads to fast, instrumentally supurb rock/americana type songs. If you wanna try something a little different and alot better than what you are used to, then this album is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reckless Kelly Rocks My World August 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
A friend of mine (now my fiance!) turned me onto Reckless Kelly about three years ago. What started out as borrowing one CD quickly transformed into me buying all their CDs at a concert in Atlanta. Unfortunately, Willie and the boys don't make it to Georgia nearly often enough for our tastes... but in between gigs, this CD has a regular home in my car stereo.

I seriously think that Reckless Kelly is one of the best bands ever! They are definitely at the top of the heap, that's for certain!

Great musicians, all of them... fun/great lyrics... awesome live shows. Absolutely one of my top five albums. I may even walk down the aisle to the reprise of Wicked Twisted Road. Gotta see if I can convince the Catholic priest to let me play it in the church!

When I hear this album I can't help but think a little of REM in their early days--when they were still good.
