Jekyll + Hyde by Zac Brown Band

By Pam - AV

May 8, 2015

My initial reaction to Zac Brown Band’s newest album Jekyll + Hyde was disappointment.  The album is a showcase for what is clearly a versatile group of musicians; but going from the country sound of “Homegrown” to the big band sound of “Mango Tree” to the hard rock sound of “Heavy is the Head” was disconcerting.  However “Beautiful Drug”, “Loving You Easy”, “Homegrown”, “Bittersweet” and “Tomorrow Never Comes (Acoustic version)” are a few favorites.  Zac Brown Band always includes one song on an album that they didn’t write, and “Dress Blues” written by Jason Isbell about a young husband, father and Marine who was killed in the Middle East was their choice.  There is something for everyone on this album, and perhaps after a few more listens, it will grow on me.    Overall Rating:  B-
