|Starting with their second album, Jackyl seemed to get lost in the swamps, opting for a more and more southern, laid-back sound, losing some of the fire and edge of the debut. Well, they've finally reclaimed it in a big way on their fifth full-length studio album, and it's about damn time! "Full Throttle" lives up to its name, and "Loads of Fun," "Freight Train" and "My Moonshine" are just as revved-up, while "I Can't Stop," "Get Mad At It" and "Just Like A Negro" bring that fat Jackyl groove. The title track reminds me very much of something Jesse's buddies Blackberry Smoke would do, and "She's Not A Drug" is guaranteed to spark fits of spontaneous bumping and grinding amongst the ladies. I'm one happy Jackyl fan with this CD. The one lame track is the a capella Janis Joplin cover, "Mercedes Benz," a complete waste of a track. Otherwise, a welcome return to the energy, swagger, piss and vinegar of the debut. One gripe: the lyrics are stuffed with Jesse's favorite catchphrases.|

|So it's about four months later, and this disc is still getting frequent spins. Good sign! "I Can't Stop" sounds like a Cut The Crap leftover, though, and "The Overflow Of Love" isn't the catchiest song they ever wrote. The Joplin cover is a waste, and "Full Throttle" is basically a theme song for Jesse's TV show (both almost didn't make it onto the record, apparently). But other than that, the other eight songs are all outstanding. Apparently, "Just Like A Negro" has been re-recorded already, with Jesse teaming with Darryl McDaniel of Run-DMC, supposedly to combat some of the backlash against the song, from people who haven't bothered to listen to it or read the lyrics. Huh? Haven't heard hardly any backlash against it, so I wonder if this isn't just a "manufactured controversy" to get attention.|
