Jesse Dupree from Jackyl discovered this band and produced this, their debut album. That may explain that clonking drum sound he loves. Otherwise, this is hard southern rock (as opposed to southern hard rock), too edgy at this point for most country fans, but not heavy enough for the metal crowd. Charlie Starr sings exactly like somebody named Charlie Starr would: raspy and a little slurred (kinda reminds me of a redneck Rhino Bucket, vocally), but the melodies are still there, but not as obvious as they would become. The band don't have enough studio tracks for a full album, so they pad it with three live songs. The first few tracks are best, with "Sanctified" being one of the band's best songs ever, and I really love their grizzled, weary but triumphant version of the Georgia Satellites' "Another Chance."

One important thing about this record as opposed to later work is the lyrical content. It's much grittier here than when they would later be courting country radio. In "Sanctified," the narrator runs away with a bad-news bitch in a '79 Camaro, and you just know no good can come of it. "Normaltown" turns a beloved country trope inside out, singing about the small-mindedness and hypocrisy of small-town life. And in "Angeline," we hear about the girl with big-city dreams only to, rumor has it, wind up turning tricks in New Orleans.
