It could be argued that Billy Currington is enjoying himself just a tad too much on his fourth album. Everything rolls just a little bit too easily, Currington letting his words crawl out in a slow drawl, the tempos never getting any quicker than a shuffle, although things almost get heated on the bluesy closer, “Lil’ Ol’ Lonesome Dixie Town.” It’s such a low-key, lazy record, so consistent in tone that the singsongy chorus of “Love Done Gone” positively blares…..
Although there's an undeniable soft center to A Little Bit of Everything, the title of Billy Currington's third album is accurate: Currington dabbles in a lot of styles here, cranking up some rocking country, singing sentimental schmaltz, getting a bit reflective but mostly spending a lot of time singing mellow country-pop…..
Billy Currington was helped enormously by his duet with Shania Twain on "Party for Two," a new track on her 2004 Greatest Hits album. She had two versions of the song on the record – one cut with Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath for the pop audience, the version with Currington for country fans, and it's not entirely a stretch to say that Currington is a country McGrath: good-looking, likeable, entirely comfortable with selling out so he can reach as big of an audience possible, yet kind of ingratiating because he's not only charming, he's good at it.

The transcontinental soul/blues duo of Pittsburgh's Billy Price and France's Fred Chapellier took their show on the road (in Europe) to support the release of the duo's Night Work debut. The results are contained on this CD/DVD package, a logical and energetic follow-up to the studio recording that reprises some – but not all – of those tunes, adds logical covers, and generally ratchets up the sparks, as live albums typically do. The 11-song audio CD runs about half the time of the far more extensive two-hour DVD, but both nail the vibe of shows that featured tough, resilient backing musicians augmented by two horn players.
