Robert Jon and the Wreck: Good Life Pie Review

Robert Jon and the Wreck are back with Good Life Pie, the followup to 2015’s Glory Bound, which placed #3 on Blues Rock Review’s Top 20 Albums of 2015. Once again, the band is teamed with producer Warren Huart. Good Life Pie features 11 tracks of well produced, good rocking tunes.

The album kicks off with “Rollin’,” a fun southern rocker and the album’s first single. Things keep rolling with “Bad For You” and “Good Lovin'” before heading into the title track, “Good Life Pie,” which is a feel good tune about making the most of life. The pace slows down on “The Death Of Me” and begins to pick back up on “Hit Me Like You Mean It,” which features a strong hook in the chorus and some tasty slide playing by Kristopher Butcher. Robert Jon and the Wreck definitely have a knack for songwriting, but can jam with the best of them as heard on the instrumental, “Tightrope.” The album closes out nicely “Sweet Angeline.”

Robert Jon and the Wreck is a group that seems to just continue to get better and better. Despite a high ranking on last year’s Top 20 albums list, Robert Jon and the Wreck are still vastly underrated. If you’re looking for some good time rock music played by real musicians, look no further than Robert Jon and the Wreck. Good Life Pie is a good time album from one of the best rock bands going at the moment.
