Arkansas native Billy Bob Thornton has repeatedly returned to his Southern roots as a musician while developing as an actor and his fourth album, “Beautiful Door,” reveals a gifted and maturing songwriter. A melancholy mood permeates the 12 tracks, which Thornton co-wrote with guitarist Brad Davis, as he explores deeply introspective and political themes. Heartfelt title track is a message aimed at fanatics bent on killing the innocent; “Always Countin'” concerns Thornton’s struggle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Thornton, whose monotone vocals benefit from Graham Nash’s harmony vocals on three tracks, is able to confront his inner demons and provide a poignant perspective on the world’s problems.
