I have heard some of their older stuff, and of course I still have yet to see them even down here in Texas. It is very southern fried rock y'all! I am going to see your boys in Dixie Witch tomorrow, they are showing the Pentagram: Bobby story doc, and they are having bands play after the movie. Good review, Greg! Review our EP, haha, joking.

Greg, you write the most concise and coherent reviews on this site. I appreciate the fact that you delve into the points of the album that may be more polarizing than endearing. That's the part of any album that I might consider before listening. Once again, thanks for reviewing something that normally flies under the radar. Will check. POS.

^This sounds awesome man. I'd like to attend this event with you. Thanks a bunch.

@drewcordova:
Much appreciated dude. These are the points I found crucial to discuss when it comes to these guys. Glad that you noticed that it's not an overhelmingly positive review. Thanks for reading.

lol rednecks, sorry. sounds exactly like Hellyeah or Black Label Society only worse and I'm not particularly fond of the two. I know these guys are just havin' fun, but it's hardly a worthy excuse. That band Voivod mentioned Phase Reverse sounds way more promising.

No way. These guys are way better than Hellyeah in every aspect. They're on the same level as Black Label Society imo.

the fact that this kind of record has already been done before makes this worse. OK maybe not worse than Hellyeah, but just because Hellyeah are really bad. Haven't heard the whole record but I just don't see this deserving a four...

1. The songs are definitely formulaic, but it's about what you expect for this kind of music.
2. Damn You to Hell - Brain rotting.
3. The album is fun. It's not what I'd plug into my headphones at work and listen to, but definitely something that I'd crank in my truck (yeah, truck) after a shit day.
4. Video for turn it up. Yeah, it's objectifying and gimmicky, but (with as few music videos as I watch) seeing some ass shake isn't so bad.

I agree with the review. But, it seems more like a 3 to me.

I cant see an album with the lead single's chorus being "CMON CMON CMON CMON TURN IT UP! CMON CMON CMON CMON TURN IT UP! TURN IT UP! JUST TURN IT UP LOUDERRRRRRR!!" being a 4 sry.

...and don't forget: "Little Sarah was from Texas / She was the preacher’s daughter / She never practiced much of what her father taught her." or "I have a big ol’ truck / And I can’t get stuck / You think I suck / And I don’t give a f..."

Listening to it right now, it will probably be a 3 or 3.5.

First song was terrible. So much so that I'd only listen further if I wanted to rate this.

these guys and their lyrics. It's awful. It reminds me of one of those horrible reality shows about truckers or some shit.

@drewcordova:
It's all about preferences. I dig Southern rock music. That's why I rated this so high.

@YouGotLucky:
I kind of dig the lyrics even though they're very often stupifying. They fit this style of music quite well... and truckers are human beings too. ;)

Southern-tinged metal you say? Well, gonna look into this then because I can definitely dig some southern tinged metal at the end of the summer. Solid review in general, as is the norm for you =)
