Clear Impetuous morning clearly proves that Jason and the Scorchers are back. The band that invented what is now called insurgent or alt country has created, in this recording, their best work since their heyday in the early and mid-eighties (Fervor and Lost and Found). The previous reunion album, A Blazing Grace, was exciting simply because the godfathers of country rock were back and sounded good. Clear Impetuous morning, their second album since reuniting, shows the masters have returned to teach a new generation of country punks how to rock. The adrenaline packed opener Self-Sabotage sets the pace of the album that rocks, rolls, reels, and twangs itself into one of the best records of the decade. To quote the first line of the first song "Oh what a rush!"

Fast, hard, nothing held back and loud -- that's why they're called the Scorchers. This is take no prisoners country rock, steeped in love, God, and a belief in rock's redemptive power. Jason has always written striking original lyrics, but a particular constant strength of this band is its ability to take somebody else's tune and give it a new, and almost inconceivable, identity. They did it with Absolutely Sweet Marie on Fervor, with 19th Nervous Breakdown, with (perhaps most memorably) Take Me Home Country Roads on A Blazing Grace (inexplicably not available on Amazon.com), and on this CD with Drugstore Truck Drivin' Man. Other highlights here are To Feel No Love and Everything Has a Cost. The Scorchers play raggedly at times and Jason's nasal vocals can become tiresome on ballads, but this band has more 'tude than a roomful of rappers and for that alone Jason and his buddies should be a required part of any serious CD collection. Any one of their CDs is a keeper.

This is another welcome addition to the Jason & the Scorchers catalog. The album kicks off with the rocking "Self-Sabotage" propelled by Warner Hodges electrifying guitar playing and Jason Ringenberg's harmonica and trademark vocal.
And as with nearly every album since Fervor, their stunning 1984 debut, they serve up one killer cover song. On Fervor it was Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie," on A Blazing Grace they provided a souped-up version of John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads." This time out it's a scorching version of Gram Parsons and Roger McGuinn's "Drugstore Truck Driving Man."
For the most part Clear Impetuous Morning is an all out rock 'n' roll album. The country influences that first showed up on Fervor and its follow-up, Lost and Found, are virtually gone. One exception is "Going Nowhere" and the duet with Emmylou Harris on "Everything Has a Cost" with its acoustic guitars and steel guitar (provided by Fats Kaplin). Another is on the stark arrangment of "Jeremy's Glory" about the death of a Union soldier in the Civil War. The closing number, "I'm Sticking with You," seems to be the most country-influenced song on the entire CD until Hodges' guitar comes charging in at the end of the first verse.
While Clear Impetuous Morning won't keep me from returning to Fervor and Lost and Found (two must-own albums!), this is a great collection of songs. And if you'd like to hear some of these songs ("Self-Sabotage" and "Going Nowhere") and other Scorcher favorites live, pick up the 2-cd Midnight Roads and Stages Seen. RECOMMENDED

I've been a huge fan of JATS for a long time now. The blend of country and rock seemed kind of awkward on their first two outings - it seemed that either Warner Hodges guitar was out of synch with the tenor of the song or Jason Ringenberg's voice didn't fit the rock and roll nature of the song. There's absolutely no awkwardness here. JATS stomp their collective feet on pedal right from the start and don't let up until the end. "Self Sabotage" opens the album with Hodges' best guitar work yet intermixed with a great harmonica solo. It doesn't let up from there; this is more melodic than previous albums but rocks harder as well. Some of my favorites are, "Victory Road," and "Kick Me Down." Put the dogs outside, clear off a big area on your living room floor and turn it up!
