Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Brian Setzer is not what you'd call a forward-looking guy. For this veteran guitarist and vocalist, the question is how far back he directs his attention. After having spent a major chunk of the '90s delving into the jump-blues and swing of the '40s and early '50s, Setzer returns to the revved-up rockabilly that first earned him a following when he fronted the Stray Cats in the early '80s. Originality has never been Setzer's forte and here the inclination to borrow extends to his songwriting: "5 Years, 4 Months, 3 Days" lifts generously from Dave Dudley's trucker anthem "Six Days on the Road" and Heart fans will recognize the riff that ushers in "Hell Bent." Still, Setzer is ideally suited as a player and singer to stand-in for rockabilly pioneers Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran, which he proves here with the high-energy likes of the title track, "Hot Rod Girl," and, especially, the punky album highlight, "Get 'Em on the Ropes." "I guess I'm behind the times," he sings in "'59." With each album, Setzer confirms that's where he belongs. --Steven Stolder

5.0 out of 5 stars BACK ON HIS GAME AGAIN July 26, 2001
Format:Audio CD
It's nice to see Brian Setzer back doing what he does best, good straight ahead neo-rockabilly. Coming very quick off the heels of his BS Orchestra cd "Vavoom", I thought this might be a hurriedly slapped together project. But that's not the case at all. As it turns out, this is the best material I've heard from Setzer in many years. This new stripped down trio of his sounds every bit as good and tight as the Stray Cats unit of the 80's. This CD starts out with the good rockin' title tune "Ignition". Then on the next song "5 Years, 4 Months, 3 Days" he veers a little bit towards country. It reminds me a lot of the song "Six Days On The Road", but the guitar sound reminds me of Bill Kirchen from his Commander Cody days. "Hellbent" is one mean rock and roller that contains some of the most fierce guitar licks on the album. I saw him perform this song on T.V. and he just tore the house down doing this song. "Hot Rod Girl" has single written all over it. It reminds me a lot of his music from the Stray Cats days. "8 Track" is a great tune where Setzer offers up his best Slim Whitman imitation, and yodels his way through this song, and at the same time laying down some very hot and cool rockabilly licks. "59" is another song that could be single material. The cheesy lyrics have the 50's written all over it with words like "everything I have is from '59. My first guitar and that girl of mine". But the music, with it's muscular neo-rockabilly sound, is very 21st century. "Santa Rosa Rita" starts out with a nice spanish style guitar, then changes pace and goes into a full tilt rocker. The numerous rhythm changes really give it a unique sound. "Get 'Em On The Ropes" is my favorite song on the album. Read more ›

Not being a big fan of swing, I was doubtful of the quality of this CD when asked to listen to it. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised. The title track is a great way to start off an album, and it only gets better from there, with tracks ranging from the wistful (the album's lyrical standout, "'59") to the scornful ("Get 'Em on the Ropes"). The music wallows in Setzer's trademark bluesy guitar and slide fills, welcome on tracks with goofy lyrics such as "Rooster Rock" (it's literally about being a rooster).
On the whole, the album is a bit of a departure from Setzer's "Jump, Jive and Wail" days, but the change is not bad. My personal favorite track, "(The Legend Of) Johnny Kool Part 2" is an adrenaline-soaked trip through greaser hell, chronicling the misadventures of the doomed title character as he takes on the CA fuzz. The song is great, the album is fantastic, and its a must-have for all fans of Setzer or swing/rockabilly in general.

4.0 out of 5 stars Setzer Ignites! July 7, 2001
By P. Rose
Format:Audio CD
Brian Setzer backtracks to the early 80's Stray Cats sound with a rockin' and reelin' new disc. Each tune is made for summer cruises in the drop top 59 Chevy. The album starts with a great opening track "Iginition" and heats it up on "5ys, 4mon, 3 days". My favorite tracks are "hot rod girl" and "59" - a somewhat autobiographical song. In classic BS style, he finishes up with a fabulous cover of "Malaguena"
Brian's guitar playing is very solid and his band provides a great groove throughout the disc. This is a great summer time CD - pick it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Same Old Great Stuff October 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Brian Setzer just might be stuck in the past, but there is nothing wrong with that at all. His "Ignition" album doesn't deviate from the rockabilly sounds of the late `50s and `60s, except this time he's dropped the orchestra and gone back to the three-piece Stray Cats sound. His tried and true sound is a hit on this album.
The album starts off with the upbeat and fiery guitar work on the title track, "Ignition". He slows things down on the next track, "5 Years, 4 Months, 3 Days", more of a country-isk sounding tune. He shows off his guitar ability by playing a solo that ranges down the bass neck of his double-neck Danelectro. Setzer scores a hat trick in the middle of the album with my favorite songs "'59", "Rooster Rock" and "Santa Rosa Rita". "'59" is Setzer's confession that he's just a little "behind the times". This ballad showcases his singing ability. The very upbeat "Rooster Rock" was penned and sung by the bassist, Mark Winchester, that will make your foot start taping. Setzer uses time changes with great effect in "Santa Rosa Rita" by beginning the song with slow Spanish-like guitar and ballad-like singing just to rev it up into high gear for a rockin' chorus. Setzer proves that he's not lacking in guitar skills by closing the album with a rocked up version of "Malaguena".
As Setzer proved with his orchestra, he is not afraid to surround himself with excellent musicians. "Ignition" is no different. His two backers are highly talented. Just listen to Winchester on the double-bass and imagine his fingers a blur over the strings. Bernie Dresel on drums can lay down one of the best locomotive rhythms around. I doubt you will find a tighter trio. If you're a Setzer fan, don't shy away from this one because the orchestra is not there. You won't know what you're missing.
