Hahahaha Any CD that starts with the sound of a record being dropped onto a scratchy piece of vinyl is A-OK in my book! LOL The Black Jetts unleash an absolutely crushing left hook to the unsuspecting masses of music fans, and most people who get hit by this release will pick themselves up and ask for another one, because it's that good. Gabe's howling intro to I'm Not Your Man sets the tone for what follows - 100% all meat no filler American Rock And Roll music, forged in the heat of the Las Vegas desert. With more than a passing nod to bands like the MC5 and the Rascals before them, the Black Jetts let loose on the distortion pedals, the dance worthy drum beats, some ass shaking bass fills and passionate, booze and cigarette soaked vocals to lay it all on the line, warts and all. The band is demanding, no, forcing you to comply to their wishes and get down to what it is they're playing and saying. Pretty cool. Sounding way better recorded and mixed than any of their last releases, the Black Jetts have really out-done themselves with this one. Fucking Hell. Songs such as Electric Revolution, Make You Stay, Like A Wet Tiger and Let's Get High On Love just illustrate how funky damn good their music is. I like how atmospheric it all is, with the band utilizing keyboards, tambourines, and gawd knows what else to create a sonic listening experience for us music fans out there. I love the way all the songs flow right into one another as well. Roy's guitar work on here is amazing, with him over-working the Flange, Fuzz and Wah-Wah pedals in his repertoire almost to the point of breaking, and Gabe's vocals have never sounded more intense or as powerful. Roy and Chad are the heartbeat of the Black Jetts machine, providing the back beat that's strong enough to crush concrete, and yet subtle enough to juggle eggs without breaking them. Such a fantastic release from the Black Jetts. How these guys aren't worshiped as the Demi-Rock Gods that they are in their minds is beyond me. Doing it purely for the Love of doing it, and without aspirations of "making it", making music because it's inside of them to do so, the Black Jetts continue to be a stellar example of how a real American Rock and Roll band is supposed to sound. Great stuff. Amen Brothers. Keep up the good work. On Rankoutsider Records.
