The Bacon Brothers' debut Forosoco could have been (and was) seen as a novelty item by some observers, since it featured actor Kevin Bacon and his brother, Michael. That was merely short-sightedness, since it was a solid Americana album. Its sequel, Getting There, is even better, filled with natural musical performances and strong songs. Occasionally, Kevin does sound a little strained in his vocals, but there's true conviction to his performances, and the duo has to be commended for trying so many different styles -- country, rock, soul, and folky introspection, among them -- and pulling it off convincingly. Give it a chance and you may be charmed. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
