'Drunk Again' is one of the funniest blues rockers I've heard. This one isn't nearly as consistent as 'Nobody Said', but it's worth it to have Frank on vocals one last time. RIP Mr. Starr.

When I first got this album I didn't like it as much as their first, but after listening to it again and again, I think it's great!! I don't compare it to their debut anymore. This ablum wasn't about getting noticed. It was about what this band stood for (in your face, southern rock). Spin this one a few times and you will enjoy it! Here are some of the songs I like: Keep Your Life, My Song, Rock My Universe, Drunk Again, Still Alive And Well. CHECK IT OUT!!

As has been said, not as good as 'Nobody'but a solid album all the same. I love the sound on this one, especially the drumming. Still Alive & Well is awesome, and Hot Rod could've been off the 1st album. the EP is well worth getting hold of to 'Welfare Boogie' I wish I'd seen these live ..

Nobody said was a brilliant album,but somehow i always play this more

From: Aero Force Mike Date: April 24, 2004 at 14:07
A fantastic follow-up... whilst the the first album is more instantly catchy, I find this more replayable since it seems to have a lot more swagger & soul... it's a lot slower, with the majority of songs sung in Frank's deeper regular singing voice. It's more along the lines of Pride & Glory whilse the E.P. and the first album were more influenced by AC/DC. All are awesome, but just because the first album is what got all the attention doesn't mean you should ignore this one... it rules!

This cd makes me wanna lean back and open a bottle of Jack D, and enjoy the good music. After this one I will put on Alligator Stew, Cinderella, and probably have a hangover the next day. Good stuff.

This is a n incredible Southeren Rock, In Your Face, CD. Excellent musicians who know how to put songs together.

From: guitar zeuss Date: September 7, 2004 at 17:46
What about Dave lizzmi on this album?. Doesnīt anyone think heīs fantastic. Heīs a Greatawesome guitar player. PEAZO GUITARRISTA COŅO. Itīs a pity they were so unfortunate. What a hard luck for a great group. They deserved something more. If you ever find this CD do yoursef a favour and buy it.

From: pharoah Date: November 13, 2004 at 19:14
thank you

From: Fizz Date: November 27, 2004 at 23:55
Darwin, apparently, it ain't too hard to get ahold of. My local music store just ordered it for me tonight. Whoooooo-EE, I am one happy Fizzy to get my stinky little meathooks on this one! Should be coming in later in the week, and I shall report back then.

Just Got this...although it doesn't hit ya as fast as the Brilliant Rockin is ma Business..It still Kicks!! It is a deep listen,don't let it pass ya by... Dave really shines here as does Frank..... once it sinks in it's there to stay!!!!!

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: June 24, 2011 at 0:42
Only Frank and Dave left from the first album. With Haggis, the main songwriter, out, you would expect something a little different. Not really stylistically, although the AC/DC has been dialed back somewhat for an increased dose of Skynyrd (even name-checked in one song). But the quality is a little less consistent than the first album. "Drunk Again," "Hot Rod," "Back In Business" and "Keep On Keepin' On" rock like '91, but there's more "Tired Wings" and less "Lookin' For Trouble." And I realize the band had been through a lot of hard times, but they beat the hell out of the whole back again/still rockin'/lucky to be alive theme favored by aging bands. Top highlights for me are "Drunk Again," just a fun drinking song, and "Hot Rod," which is just a pure joy to listen to, the band obviously having a blast, Frank hollering and laughing and ad-libbing all over the place until the whole thing careens completely out of control.
