The songs have a 70’s rock feel and are inspired by Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. The record sounds a bit like Pink Floyd had recorded an album in Nashville. Mike Wertz, singer, songwriter, and producer for JRB, says “Judge Roy Bean integrates the best of southern, progressive and punk rock in this complex and diverse sophomore release. The record is definitely concept driven and epic in scope.”

Some of the tracks seem very easy-listening and care-free. “Maybelline” specifically has an addictive hook to it. While others are quite deep, conveying a sense of great loss, like in “Fade Away”. Some of the tracks, like “Family”, have a southern twang. While “Space Disco” has a more up-beat disco vibe. JRB’s overall vocal sound is closely related to Grateful Dead or early Eagles.

Both the front and back cover art are heavily inspired by the paintings of Van Gogh, but are a strong contrast in both color and theme from each other to cover the diverse nature of the music. I felt the high color saturation and expressive line-work would give the piece a psychedelic feel.
