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.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: December 18, 2012 at 16:25
"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."

Long gone are the days from their great debut.....
