Kevin Costner's Turn It On a turn-off


WATERWORLD we live in, where Hollywood A-listers can just fandango into the recording studio and put together an album willy nilly, whereas the likes of me continue to languish in obscurity.
But enough of my struggle.
Some of these stars, musically, are untouchables - Juliette Lewis's Juliette And The Licks, Jared Leto's 30 Seconds To Mars - but others, like Kevin Costner And Modern West, see the actors merely chasing dreams.
Turn It On, the group's second, sees them turn out derivative Bruce Springsteen-style country-tinged rock and roll - pub rock if you will.
And while the group play it to the bone, the material just doesn't make the cut.


  1. Does Kevin make money on his music? Is his marriage in trouble?

  2. I heard this album is a hit in Europe

  3. I understand the album has charted in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Greece. I imagine he makes some money from it. I have no idea of how his marriage is going.

  4. His music is not that great...well it not my taste, so why do people like it and why does he continue to make albums?

  5. Well I only gave it 2/5 so you're preaching to the converted there, but I have to say if I was mega rich from the day job, I'd have made an album or two by now, like it or not.

  6. Kevin Costner started the band (again) to have a more personal connection with his fans. Keyword = FANS. If you're a fan you'll want the album and will love it! If you're not a fan then you really don't have to bother yourself about it because it's not meant for you! And we all know there is a lot of other music out there that you can choose to enjoy!
