|I found this disc to be a HUGE disappointment, especially after really liking the last album just a couple years ago. Best In Show just seems slapped together and half-assed. With the exception of "Screw Driver," the songs range from mediocre to downright awful. "Favorite Sin" is decent but forgettable, while "Encore" and "Horns Up" are infectious but stupid. "Better Than Chicken" is just stupid, and barely a complete song (originally something Jesse sang in the middle of "Dirty Little Mind" onstage). "Don't Lay Down On Me" should've been left to Jesse's buddies Blackberry Smoke, and "Walk My Mile" and the two covers are just horrible. Lyrics are rehashed all over the place, and Jesse is an amateur as a producer. It's just a poor effort all around that in no way lives up to its title. If Moonshine And Dynamite was comparable to the debut, Best In Show is closer to Cut The Crap or Stayin' Alive.|

|I agree, this one is definitely not as good as Moonshine and Dynamite, although after a few spins it has grown on me a bit. "Screw Driver" is flat out awesome and I really dig "Encore" (which reminds me a bit of "Locked and Loaded". Other than that though the songs are pretty weak. The bonus track "Open Invitation" is a song directed at bin laden so I'm assuming it was recorded before he was killed. Plus, the hidden final track "It's Tricky" is some kind of rap/rock tune that is really pretty bad, which I guess explains why it's not listed.|

|"Open Invitation" was recorded immediately after 9/11 and offered free on the band's website. They wanted to release it on the Relentless album, but couldn't get clearance on the George C. Scott samples from "Patton." in 2012, it's totally dated and irrelevant, kinda like Styx's "Show Me The Way" with all the soundbites about Desert Storm. "It's Tricky" is a Run-DMC cover, with Jesse and Darryl McDaniels. DMC first added some unnecessary raps to a single version of "Just Like A Negro" from the last album, so I guess Jackyl (Jesse) is returning the "favor."|

|Do you know somebody in your life that you used to have a ton of fun with, but now you look at them and they just seem a little pathetic? On the surface they're the same as they used to be, but they have to work harder at it? They'll tell you they're all about having fun, but underneath all the joking and good-time posturing, they seem kinda resentful and bitter, and the punchlines are kinda stale or don't quite land, and they just aren't that much fun to be around anymore? And you wonder, shit, am I the one who lost his sense of humor? What's wrong with me that I don't think "I like poontang better than chicken" is hilarious, or rhyming cocaine and insane (again!) the height of lyrical genius? Then you go to a barbecue at this guy's house, and when he whips out his chainsaw for no reason other than that's what he always does, you heave a sigh and find an excuse to leave early? That's how I feel about Jackyl.|

|"Doghouse," that was actually kinda funny and gotta agree with 'ya. Jackyl's first two albums are phenomenal IMO, but then they just sorta drifted over time, a few songs here and there good, the rest along the lines of the terrible song, The Lumberjack. Which nobody likes, we just put up with it.|
