From: SIXXSWINE Date: May 14, 2001 at 16:08
This band is what AC/DC's bastard child would sound like. While it does rock. You have to wonder, why anyone would purposly want to sound like a band that has the sound down? Why not just be a cover band? This is not a formula for success! This has some great tracks, but why not just buy Back In Black & listen to the masters at work? SWINE SAYS-5.0 rating

From: SleazyMusic Date: September 11, 2001 at 3:36
Oh yeah, SixxSwine! You told the truth...and for Dirty Looks or Johnny Crash is the same...

From: nighttiger Date: November 28, 2001 at 18:32
I have to agree,this is the CD you put on at the party when you can't find the AC/DC.

From: jason Date: May 11, 2002 at 13:20
Jackyl is a big fan of AC/DC. They may have that sound but they don't weare the shorts. I really like these guys because they are the only hair band that pushed on through the '90's and had success. What I really like is how they opened for alot of big acts like aerosmith & ZZ Top and Jackyl stoled the show! The bands they opened up for got pissed and kicked them off the tourers. Jackyl outshined them all!!

From: The Prophet Date: May 23, 2002 at 9:57
Dupree was totally out of head, He spend more time to show his nudity to the pubblic, than trying to sound more original than this. I stand alone is a cool track with a cool video. They were 100% Ac/dc followers. Well, I must admit that I am not an Ac/dc maniac, so they are not much interesting for me. Between the bands so higly influenced by Ac/dc my favorite was Johnny Crash.

From: RichieRocker Date: May 31, 2002 at 21:23
Down On Me one hell of a tune great vibe to the song and it also brings out a certain animalistic feeling when you have this song cranked all the way!!! Rock on everybody.

From: ThunderDan Date: June 17, 2002 at 19:18
I'm with RichieRocker, you can't go wrong w/ Down On Me. The Lumberjack and Dirty Little Mind are cool too. When Will It Rain is also a very cool song. Great party band!

From: RichieRocker Date: June 19, 2002 at 22:03
These guys are fuckin animals. I just saw them live and they kicked ass!! i met Jesse Dupree after the show and he was really cool. Check these guys out live, you wont be dissapointed.

From: TIM Date: August 31, 2002 at 13:20
I saw Jackyl live recently. They did sound good but not as good as Tesla. And no, they didn't sound better. They were entertaining though.

From: TIM Date: September 14, 2002 at 0:48
I think these guys are releasing a new album on October 22 or so. Do you know for sure jason?

From: The Fizzy One Date: September 15, 2002 at 18:33
Tim: it's gonna be called Relentless, and as far as I know, yes, 10/22 is the date. Now as for this here album ... man! I gave it a perfect 10. I'm not real sure why, as they certainly aren't original or anything, but something about this band grabbed me from the minute I heard "I Stand Alone' at the tender age of 12, back in the summer of '92. Later, in high school, I would come home from another hellish day and play this song LOUD! THe rest of the album? Just as good, except maybe for "Reach F

From: TIM Date: September 15, 2002 at 20:14
Thanks Fizzy One.

From: koogles Date: September 24, 2002 at 9:50
Still their best. An American AC/DC if I ever heard one. BY THE WAY: why isn't Johnny Crash on this site? Their cool "Neighborhood Threat" is along the same lines as this Jackal CD.

From: Brian Date: October 14, 2002 at 20:40
Trailer park rock!

From: Buster Date: October 16, 2002 at 22:53
This album is pretty good. It's certainly worth getting but it's not gonna grab you by the balls. I don't know why Johnny Crash keeps getting mentioned here but I might as well say that their album is absolutely brilliant, much better than anything AC/DC put out. By the way I don't think either of these bands sound all that much like AC/DC.

From: J Scott Date: October 19, 2002 at 17:59
Great first album, who cares if they sound like AC/DC. So don't alot of other bands. but this one kicks some serious butt. Down on Me and I stand Alone are classiks. This is a must have CD.

From: blondie Date: October 23, 2002 at 10:02
the best song i have ever heard from JACKYL is DIRTY LITTLE MIND. my cousin introduced meto the band and they are the coolest band on the planet.

From: J Scott Date: November 1, 2002 at 22:22
Best Jackyl song is "Push Comes To Shove" on the follow-up cd.

From: Gar Date: January 29, 2003 at 23:37
I really liked this album when I first heard it, but it grew dull after a few listens. AC/DC-esque to say the least, but Jackyl doesn't come up with as many good riffs. These are all fun songs, but they are all pretty much the same.

From: DiZzY Date: January 30, 2003 at 23:57
The chainsaw, well, that was pretty dumb. Every other song was mint. Expecially Dirty Little Mind. Its a must have.

From: izzy Date: June 9, 2003 at 5:56
I just noticed today but theres two covers to this album. The normal cover has parental advisory sign and on other version the sign says "be ware of the Jackyl" or something like that

From: John Date: September 23, 2003 at 16:57
No frills, straight up rock. If you can get past the image of Jesse disrobing every chance he gets, there's some great American rawk on this album. Every tune sounds awesome due to the stellar Geffen production. 8/10.

From: Lumberjack Date: December 13, 2003 at 16:55
Not that Jackyl is anything special when it comes to quality,but who wants to listen 1000 and 1 CDs which all sound similar? Chainsaws make Jackyl special,they should've done more of those (maybe 3 chainsaw tracks per CD).

From: red Date: February 7, 2004 at 16:24
Not bad, but they were way overated around this time. I saw them open for Aerosmith in late 94 and people went crazy for them. For all of their image, they really didn't sound that energetic live.

From: Kimmie Date: March 24, 2004 at 17:29
Jackyl is a totally underrated band. Their first album more than rocked! KICKS ASS!!!!!!!

From: Bundy Date: March 25, 2004 at 0:12
Saw these guys open for Aerosmith in '93. They put the 'Smith to shame that night. What I wanna know is how many generations of inbreeding did it take to make Jesse James Dupree? He wore the red redneck long johns slit up the back with assless chaps over them. He would part the long johns, turn to the crowd and yell "Ain't nuthin like a good ass scratchin'!!!"

From: Mike h Date: May 9, 2004 at 23:05
This is by far the best Jackyl cd released. i bought this cd with my friend and his dad (who listens to this stuff). I bought it because of the songs DOWN ON ME, THE LUMBERJACK, I STAND ALONE, and WHEN WILL IT RAIN. and because i though SHE LOVES MY COCK would be a pretty funny song. it kind of is. not really. it was funny because i saw these guys a couple of years ago in Albuquerque, NM with my dad. it was them Skid Row, Tesla, and Vince Neil. after skid row finished playing Jackyl was next. it

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 0:11
Really the last band of this type of music to have a good deal of success, Jackyl parlayed a good gimmick into some sales with "The Lumberjack", but "Down On Me" and "When Will It Rain" are the top songs. 6/10

From: love metal Date: July 21, 2004 at 19:15
I love this cd, they are having fun and it shows, yes i love "down on me" and the other singles, but i also love "redneck punk" and "reach for me". All songs killer and no filler.

From: Desslar Date: July 24, 2004 at 4:42
The singles are all quite strong (got to love the chainsaw solo), but the album tracks mostly suck. Some AC/DC influence, but they have their own sound.

From: Endika Date: July 26, 2004 at 8:31
This album is a Fuckin crap!! Very normal hard rock,but his melodys are out of good songs!!! In my opinion the worst hard rock cd. Este disco no vale pa na.Apesta un huevo. 1/10

From: Raul Date: November 23, 2004 at 15:23
Vaya MIERDA de disco.Apesta de principio a fin.De los peores discos que he escuchado.puntuacion 0/10. Totalmente de acuerdo contigo,Endika.Como lo compres eres un vil marikita que no tiene ni idea de hard rock.Compra AC/DC que le da 10000000 vueltas.

From: Metal80s Date: December 23, 2004 at 22:50
A awsome cd. The only crap song is the lumberjack. Why everyone likes that track I don't know. It's very slow paced, clunky, chucky track that sounds really disjointed. Luckly all the other songs rule, every song on here except Lumberjack kick serious ass if you like glam metal and acdc get this.

From: Gabriel Date: January 11, 2005 at 1:14
Just rock ´n´ roll to hang out and have a beer! I STAND ALONE is the record´s best song although DOWN ON ME and WHEN WILL IT RAIN rocks too! The song SHE LOVES MY COCK represent Jackyl´s romantic side!

From: Geoff Date: January 11, 2005 at 1:49
Another of those harmless CD. Not brilliant, but very solid and consistent hard rock with pretty massive backing vocals. It's not my favourite CD, but it's easily their best IMO and well worth putting in the disc player if you want some good striaght ahead hard rock.

From: TOKIOBLADE Date: January 27, 2005 at 5:20

From: Big Mike Date: February 13, 2005 at 12:00
Crap.....the poor mans AC/DC "reach for me" is ok but don't waste good money on this. spend it on pot plants instead, they sound better.

From: ninjapeter Date: May 7, 2005 at 6:16
Great band. A raw kind of bluesy hard rock with passion. Sort of similar to AC/DC but personally I think this band is better, and I do like AC/DC a lot too. I like all the songs but I get a kick out of the lumberjack song, who would ever think of playing a chainsaw like an instrument.

From: Andrew Date: June 7, 2005 at 23:32
Jackyl is definately one of my favorites. A blend of AC/DC, Skynyrd, and Aerosmith (before they sold out). Highlights of this disc include "I Stand Alone", "When Will It Rain?", and "Dirty Little Mind". I also think the lumberjack song is overrated. This has got to be one of the few hard rock bands to survive the grunge "revolution". 9.5/10

From: headbanger4life Date: January 25, 2006 at 22:55
I loved this cd when it came out and I still like it. Straight ahead American hard rock that sounds similair to AC/DC. "When Will It Rain" is my favorite song by these guys. Fans of AC/DC, Aerosmith and ZZ Top will enjoy this one.

From: themartin Date: July 22, 2006 at 15:24
This is great! It sounds like ACDC, it's true so what? isn't ACDC one of the greatest bands ever? yes, what is the problem?! I prefer this than other AC/DC sounding bands like Krokus...Jackyl kick ass! the best songs are "I Stand Alone", "When Will It Rain?","Dirty Little Mind"...the entire album!! And it's a miracle that it came out in '92. Why don't come out albums like this anymore?

From: m&m Date: September 2, 2006 at 22:53
THis album rocks. SO what if sounds like AC/DC. THere are only three AC/DC albums after bon scott died that can touch this. AC/DC still sounds like AC/DC and they still keep selling albums but they all pale in comparison next to this.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 16, 2007 at 22:42
I love this album!!!.They were true to what they stood for with this one.Let me tell you songs such as "I Stand Alone","Dirty Little Mind" & "The Lumberjack" must be included as the best HR songs of all time!!!.Jesse Dupree is a hell of a front-man and the rest of the guys do their job just bloody fine.I'll give this one a 10/10 straight to yar face!!!.

From: rockhardrock Date: March 26, 2007 at 16:04
Is chainsaw instrument?D Kickin ass hard rock album-hell yeahh!!! Every track on that one is good,only "When Will It Rain" doesnt match with others. Overall this record kicks ass!!!

From: Rycheage Date: September 21, 2007 at 22:18
Straight ahead hard rock that gets a spin once in a while. "I Stand Alone" is a cool track but like the follow-up, nothing new and nothing that stands on its own. Pretty good but not a must own.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: April 17, 2009 at 19:59
Jackyl are one of those bands you either love or absolutely hate, there's just no middle ground. Count me in the first category, because their debut is one of my all-time favorite CD's. There's just something about the over-the-top, rednecky exuberance, that mix of anger and glee and horniness, that appeals to me. This is the best of their studio albums, with those big, swinging grooves and simple, biting riffs. My favorites would be the surprisingly melodic "When Will It Rain," "Dirty Little Mind," "Just Like A Devil," and "I Stand Alone," which is sort of "my song," if you will, and never fails to pump me up.

From: Animal! Date: January 22, 2011 at 1:40
From out of nowhere comes Jackyl. This is their best, from this one on they lost the magic.

From: hair metal again Date: February 2, 2011 at 7:33
excellent hair metal release by JACKYL.imagine acdc and tesla playin together ,with a kickass feel good rockin vibe and groove.this release has astonishing guitars,amazing backing vocals and many good songs.no need to mention any songs ,this is pure good ol US hard rock music.essential

From: Doug Date: February 2, 2011 at 15:06
Not sure I would classify these guys as "hair metal?" Nonetheless this is just a fun, good drinkin' to album. Probably best not to take Jackyl very serioulsy. Come on it's Jesse James Dupree.

From: ghettonation73 Date: October 27, 2011 at 23:02
Whatever happened to Jimmy Stiff and Tom Bettini of Jackyl!

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: October 28, 2011 at 1:06
Jimmy and Tom "got religion," as they say in the South, and quit in about '99 or so. I think one of Tom's bands had a song on some NASCAR compilation CD, but I haven't heard anything about Jimmy since. BTW, their original singer, Ronnie Honeycutt (this is pre-1990, part of their past they don't officially acknowledge) is in a band in Nashville called Rufus Fontaine.

From: elljam Date: May 30, 2012 at 13:00
Good solid no frills hard rock with some decent tunes, the best being "Back off brother" & the AC/DC style "She loves my cock". Good record to get you in the mood for a night out

From: Auslander Date: March 4, 2021 at 22:55
I really dig this release. But then again, I like the dirty hard boogie sound that ACDC perfected and spawned in countless imitators. This is a very good debut, featuring a song that I consider a late classic of the 80s sleaze style, namely "The Lumberjack". Not many bands list "chainsaw" as an instrument! It actually sounds awesome haha. One thing Jackyl understand is that one of the great charms of ACDC were the working man lyrics and gutter humour. You can tell they loved Bon's smirk by the song titles and lyrics Jackyl incorporated into this album. A class act for 1992. 90/100.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 11, 2021 at 15:07
My boss is on vacation this week and things are about slow at work, and so I will repeat Auslander's exercise for myself, coming up with the best release from each of the sleaze years. 1992 is often looked on as the first of the barren years, and yeah, it was the year that grunge and pop-country really took off (after taxiing down the runway for much of '91). But there was still plenty of party rock to be had, even if most of it failed to reach the same heights commercially as in years past. Jackyl were an exception, in that they actually went platinum with their debut when most such bands were lucky to go gold. Maybe because it WAS their debut? But here's the thing: charts and sales figures aside, this is the one party-rock album from '92 that I come back to the most often, by far. I can't remember the last time I listened to Double Eclipse or America's Least Wanted or even Revenge, and most of my other favorjses from this year are stuff like Pantera, Trouble, White Zombie, Alice In C

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 11, 2021 at 15:20
... Chains and Megadeth. But Jackyl's debut is still a guaranteed good time to this day! They took the spirit of AC/DC and injected it with a trashy, southern sensibility—much more Harry Crews than Harper Lee. And that was a new twist at the time. The songs are deceptively simple, and sometimes the backing vocals add subtly slick hooks to a song like "Down On Me," but mostly they make you want to pump your fist and yell along. The first six songs continue to be live staples, and all but "Redneck Punk" were big on radio. "Brain Drain" and especially "Reach For Me" are filler at best, and "back Off Brother" as well although they did make a video for it, but the disc finishes strong with "Just Like A Devil" and the immortal "She Loves My Cock." Jesse Dupree went on to style himself as the Jeff Foxworthy of rock, and seems to labor just as hard at the same old punchlines as Fox does these days, but never was he as effortlessly funny—and fun—as on this album.

From: Auslander Date: May 13, 2021 at 5:10
You've inspired me to categorise my top ten Sleaze Rock albums of the era, Doghouse. Great review of Jackyl by the way. An underrated band IMO. You don't have to be complicated to be good.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 13, 2021 at 12:07
Glad I could help. I'm not going to split subgenre hairs or do honorable mentions, if I can help it, although I already realized I forgot an important sleazy classic from 1990 in my figuring. Dammit!
