Believe it or not, this is Billy Falcon's 9th album, his 3rd since the break through album Pretty Blue World - even if album number three (for Mercury Records) was never released.
On Songs About Girls, Falcon is joined by Blue Tears/Attraction 65 bass player Michael Spears and Falcon's daughter Rose herself a rising talent.
The album sticks to the sound of Billy Falcon's previous records and sees the singer/songwriter doing what he does best which is writing intelligent acoustic driven southern rock songs, with the heart of those songs wrapped up in Billy's own life experiences.
Songs About Girls is Billy's best album next to Pretty Blue World which saw his score a major hit with the track Power Windows.
This is stripped back John Mellencamp / Tom Petty style rock, covering uptempo rock - Songs About Girls; bluesy rock ballads 98 To Alabama, Weightless; Tom Petty pop/rock Box Of Chocolates, Damn; stripped back pop Breathe, Weeds; and a great ballad or two also, such as My Angel and Wish, which features Rose Falcon on vocals with Billy.
Billy's also re-recorded Power Windows, which is in keeping with new sound of this record, mixed with the soul of the original track and spruced up with a modern production. It's still a great song.
The Bottom Line
This is a quality album from a quality songwriter. The music is mature acoustic driven pop/rock for those that love the Midwestern singer/songwriter feel of such artists like Tom Petty.
Billy's done a great job of recording this album himself, which sounds like a major label release and from the quality of songs, deserves to be.

This is a great album. It showcases Billy's wonderful songwriting. "Breathe" and "Damn" are personal favorites.
Definitely try to catch Billy and Rose at one of their appearances and go buy this CD from Billy's site.
