I was a little shocked by the way this cd started. It was wild & loud, bone on bone r'n'r. This was not what I Expected but I liked what I heard. some songs have great music but the words are kind of dorky, such songs as wang dang doodle & baby likes my butter on her grits.( he's not talking about real food) This is still a great cd. this older guy can still rockout & kick royal [booty]... If u are a ted fan you can understand why he is still motor city's madman. (america's madman)

I was introduce to Ted High School via the Penetrator
album. I have been a fan ever since although I have owned much of his stuff. This album is a must buy!!! I have seen him live and I believe that this album will be great!!!
Who else can name a song "My Baby Likes My Butter On Her Gritz" and get away with it???
This is destined to be a classic!!

Teds best since the 70's other than Spirit of the Wild. I love the song "At home here", not sung by Ted but sounds like his lyrics. Great bass line too!

While Ted's guitar work is really great on this album, I hate the vocals. It's that possessed, untalented, grunting type of vocals that are so omnipresent today.

If Ted has used the singer on "Cat Scratch Fever" on this album, this album would rate 5 stars in my book, but with present vocals, it rates only a three.

Get a new singer Ted!!!

After a long recording hiatus, Ted Nugent released Craveman in 2002. Rather than continue in the hard rock direction of his most successful releases, as well as his last studio album, the excellent Spirit of the Wild, Ted went in a heavier direction more suited toward the alternative metal that was popular at the time. Also worth noting is that long time collaborator Derek St. Holmes is once again out of the loop and the results are apparent on the album. Quite simply, Ted is at his best with Derek and without him, his albums lack focus. The first track "Klstrphnky" is a good example of this as it sounds more like Kid Rock than Nugent. However, the next track "Crave" is killer, showing that even is in his mid-50's, the Nuge still could create riffs that are both wicked and memorable. After this, the album bounces from very good to very mediocre. The very good includes "Damned If Ya Do", a great melodic rocker featuring former Damn Yankees bandmates Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades, and "Sexpot", which has a very cool groove. And speaking of "Sexpot", the songs here also have more sexual overtones than on any of his albums. "Cum N Gitya Some of This" and "My Baby Likes Butter on Her Gritz" are both very good and carried by very killer riffs. However, tracks like "Pussywhipped", "Change My Sex", and "Goin' Down Hard" are just plain filler. Ted also uses a lot of recycled riffs as the decent "I Won't Go Away" borrows from both past Nugent classics "Just What The Doctor Ordered" and "Workin' Hard, Playin' Hard" while "Wang Dang Doodle" is just a bad rewrite of "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang." With all the inconsistency, the closing instrumental "Earthtones" actually redeems the album and is the only track that is on par with his classic `70s material. All told, while Craveman is Ted Nugent's heaviest album and he is still an amazing guitarist, it's a step down from Spirit of the Wild and a far cry from his best work.

This one is ted at his hardest , sounding on some songs like a semi thrasher , well sort of. I would say this 'love grenade' has much better songs on it than this one. I like melodic metal much more than thrashy stuff. But this falls in their somewhere inbetween. Ted should let others sing most of his songs. That was always a strength of the nuge, he would do about half the songs and let others do the rest. And he sure needs to do that here.
Still 'raw dogs and warhogs' is a great song that could fit on any nuge cd. "pussy whipped" is a cool song too.
There's other good ones, a some I just barely liked at all, but this is not the typical straight melodic ted pretty much , it's recorded very loudly, I like recorded cleanly better , then you can turn it up on your own. To me this is ted's worst , but it's still a good average metal cd that's more thrashy. Ted fans will want this one last. other than perhaps 'marriage on the rocks' which is a ted and amboy dukes cd from 1971. THat was imo worst till this one. However, ted's worst still has excellent guitar playing on it. And the band is tight. It's a mixed bag, and I can listen to every song on it without moving on. That's better than alot of artists weakest releases! And I have all of ted's stuff that I could find including a rare radio show on cd. so.... I love ted's music obviously, this one is my least fave but it's still better than many others in the metal field today.

Craveman is a excellent effort from a 50 plus rocker. There is not a weak track on this cd. I am 19, which would not be the normal ted nugent fan age range, but i agree with not only his music style but his political views (republican, and damn proud of it). Politics aside, I have yet to find a weak track on this cd. Go out and buy it if your a fan of Uncle Ted or if your a fan of good rock, not the crap that is being put out today that they pass off on us claiming its rock. May the spirit of the wild live on (If your a Uncle Ted follower, you know where th ats coming from).

Finally...it took him long enough. Ted has produced a double-barrelled, testosterone-loaded, guitar monster of an album guarandamnteed to pi** ofr any self-respecting U2 fan within, oh, a few thousand light years listening distance. No keyboards, no ballads, and most refreshing, no wailing Derek St. Holmes stealing Ted's spotlight. The M.C. Madman is in full command here, his backing band is tight and crisp, and nobody misses a step. This disc is best enjoyed at full blast, with the speakers pointed out the window, belching out Ted's trademark fun-lovin' fury at the irritating PC/Communist/hippie/lib neighbor you like the least. And if you're looking for a tender love song for that special feminist in your life, I highly recommend "Pussywhipped".
All in all, "Craveman" is a breath of fresh air in a musical wasteland.
