Bravo Johnson – The Crooked And The Straight Album Review

An sepia-tinted image of an army of skulled soldiers is a good way to be introduced to any band. Thoughts of creepy, dark experimental music comes to mind, but Bravo Johnson is not quite that predictable. In actuality, The Crooked And The Straight is a monstrous 27-track double CD of folk and classic rock-influenced songs that are polished to a sheen and sound as though they were created by some real professionals. One has to wonder, though, if it’s a bit pretentious for an unknown band to release their sophomore album as a double disc. Does it get tiresome? Slightly. Bravo Johnson obviously has talent but had they kept the best tracks from both discs and tossed the rest, the album would probably be rather amazing.
