In my excitement over "Do Right," I eagerly purchased this cd, hoping the rest of the tracks would be equally amazing and upbeat. Personally, other than "Lazy Boy Dash," the rest of the tracks are rather slow paced, dull, and repetative. If you liked "Do Right," you would probably be better off finding a single somewhere, or if you're REALLY curious, listen to a friend's cd before spending your money. This cd is definitely not what I'd expected. Though I wouldn't be surprised to hear "Lazy Boy" on the radio soon.

When I heard Jimmie's Chicken Shack's last album, Pushing The Salmanilla Envelope, I was impressed by the band's songwriting and musical ability, thinking they would go on to be the next Tool (not because they are similar in sound, but because they were a rocking nonconformist band willing to push boundaries). Unfortunately, their new album Bring Your Own Stereo seems like it was designed solely for radio play and commercial appeal, a disappointment from one of the few bands that provided light in the current dark age of music.
While I won't go far enough to say the music on this album is horrible (or even outright bad), I will say that JCS lost everything that was once distinctive about them and sound like every other band now. The "mutt rock" hybrid has been replaced by a mediocre and homogeneous sound that many bands have done before - granted, JCS does it OK, but a band with their talent should not be conforming just for the sole purpose of selling albums. If you are a fan of Sugar Ray's new album you might like BYOS (there's quite a resemblance there - mediocre ska-pop is quite prevalent on both releases), but those looking for a mind-blowing sound with meaningful lyrics should get PTSE instead, which blows this out of the water. Jimmy McD was 1,000 times the guitar player that Double D is - check it out if you don't believe me.

Okay, before I begin, I would like to point out I am a die-hard fan of JCS and have been for some time. It was in a time when the music industry was about to belly up and we were about to have Rap take the crown from good ol' Rock and Roll. Then, I saw Jimmie's Chicken Shack... and I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. I couldn't believe my ears when I heard the sweeping melodies and harsh guitar sounds that I would never be able to label. The band was not only the most entertaining band I had ever seen, but their beats and their riffs and Jimi HaHa's vocals were able to actually MOVE the crowd. And so I eagerly awaited the coming of their 4th (2nd on a major record label) album, anticipating more unearthly rowdiness from beyond.
And what do we get? Well, let's see... There's a bit of 311 in there, a bit of, uh, Sugar Ray... oh yeah, definitely some Everclear... Guys, I have two words for you: Sell Out. JCS has totally conformed into just another top 40s band just so they can get radio play. I really hope I'm wrong, but I would've thought JCS to be the last band in it for the money. A word to Jimi- Dude, this can't go on. Well, if you really want to hear what JCS is all about, buy one of their other albums, like "Pushing the Salmonella Envelope" or "2 For 1 Special." Buy this album only if you want a really expensive frisbee. Adios

I can only name about 3 CDs that I am able to listen to the entire way through - and Bring Your Own Stereo (BYOS) is definately one of them. This band might seem silly, or weird, or boring, or stoner-ish, but when you listen to this CD, you can tell they're so much more. Frankly, I love this CD!
I listen to everything from jazz to classical to Coldplay and Fiona Apple. But in the end, this CD is in my player more than any of those. There's just something about this CD... I'm not even sure I can describe it. It puts my feelings and thoughts to words and music. At the same time, it's creative and original (especially the lyrics). BYOS is a great release of emotion and energy; cranking it up all the way and singing the lyrics as loud as I can is some sort of weird therapy.
I think it's strange that I like Jimmie's Chicken Shack, but I do. Give them a chance. You probably will, too.

I have just been turned on to Jimmies Chicken Shack and what better way to start than with Bring Your Own Stereo! The bands lyrics and melodies are awesome on it, especially on Waiting For You, I think I've listed to that song about 500 times today! I definitely recommend this CD, I don't buy that many CDs but when I do, it has to be great!

Jimmie's Chicken Shack's "Bring Your Own Stereo" is an enjoyable album because it does a great job of combining what is great about reggae, ska, and punk into a unique sound. It is clear that this group's influences are eclectic to say the least, and they pay homage to each genre well.
The reggae feel is clear on songs where the lyrics are echoed and the guitar plays the laid back high-string upbeats, and as the tempo increases and the vocals become more deliberate you get the feel of ska instead of reggae although little has changed. That's the important thing to notice about this group: they only hint at these sorts of sounds, never committing to any one solely, and never letting one dominate them. This is why they remain a unique group that is hard to categorize. It is also why I'd say that a fan of any of these styles that claims to like many other kinds of music would have to enjoy this CD.
With a combination of tested and true musical techniques, deliberate and honestly catchy lyrics with clever rhetorical devices, and a very lively beat, "Bring Your Own Stereo" is an album that you can play over and over without tiring of it. Give it a shot if you are entrenched into any of the fundamental styles like punk, ska, or reggae and are looking for a new sound with familiar overtones.
