Buck 65, Talkin’ Honky Blues

Buck 65 is best known as a hip hop artist, but his on latest release, he experiments by mixing the beats with country music. As well, he employs live stringed instruments, giving the album a more down to earth vibe. Buck 65's rough vocal style and stage persona has been compared favourably to Tom Waits, and his influence is evident throughout the album — especially on "Riverbed 3" and "50 Gallon Drum," which could of been b-sides from Waits' classic Bone Machine. Buck 65's imaginative songs not only effect the soul but also tickle the funny bone. (WEA) Rating: 4 Out Of 5 Stars
