Spun: Billy the Kid

Lost Cause

Publication YearIssue Date 

Lost Cause by Billy the Kid is the perfect soundtrack for a lazy day in bed. Produced and mixed by Raine Maida, the album contains five songs that definitely moves beyond the expected 20 to 30 minutes of torturous twangy voices and corny lyrics that plague many folk albums. The tempo is just right and the acoustic guitar and the lead vocal sounds delightful. The album is very relaxing and hummable even after listening to the songs just once.

The songs are all fairly catchy to the point of being hard to distinguish from a majority of songs from generic albums, but Billy the Kid shows promise as a musician. However, she should try to be more original if she really wants to stand out from a flock of equally talented musicians.
