Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Where the new generation of Texas roadhouse troubadours more often carries the torch passed from Jerry Jeff Walker and Robert Earl Keen, the harder-edged and more introspective Jack Ingram shows the strong influence of Steve Earle (who produced an earlier Ingram album). Those who miss the boyish Earle of Guitar Town will hear echoes in the opening anthem, "Keep On Keepin' On," and the closing lullaby, "Goodnight Moon." In between, Ingram puts his brand on a wide range of material, from the propulsive uplift of "One Thing" (which sounds like a signature hit in the making) to the two-stepping twang of "Everybody" to the gospel revivalism of "Pete, Jesus and Me." "One Lie Away" bears the imprint of Ingram's cowriter, Jim Lauderdale, while coproducers Frank Liddell and Mike McCarthy push the sonic envelope throughout, bringing a contemporary sheen to Ingram's rootsy dynamic. Though Ingram has long been a favorite with Texas collegians, this should broaden his audience among both mainstream and alternative country fans. --Don McLeese

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack Is Still The Best October 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I felt that I had to write a review after reading one that claimed that Jack Ingram has lost his roots. I've got every album Jack Ingram has released. I believe he's a VERY talented song writer and performer. I've seen him live twice. He's just as amazing up close and personal as he is on his albums.
Electric is somewhat different from Jack's previous albums. But it's STILL Texas country. In fact it's more Texas than a lot of the stuff coming out today. Electric brings to mind Buddy Holly and Joe Ely and Willie Nelson thrown into a crock pot and left to simmer. Electric has been in my cd player since I first bought it and I have no intention of taking it out any time soon.
Anyone that claims Ingram has sold out or lost his roots obviously doesn't know what Texas music is. Just because you're from Houston doesn't mean you know diddley. I wonder if those who claim Jack's no longer Texan know who Bruce Robison is. Just let me tell you that Bruce is an AMAZING singer/song writer and he's on Jack's Electric. They've written a few songs together before and I am more than sure that if Jack had lost his Texas roots, Bruce would have been the first to tell him.
If you like Texas music and you know more than JUST Pat Green, give this album a good listen. You'll love it. Jack Ingram is still the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars breakthrough album September 25, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Electric is a breakthrough album, shaking up the expectations of yet another pleasing offering from the charismatic Jack Ingram, one of the brightest and most daring of the new Texas generation. This album defies classification, but the rigidity of the music industry should take a gamble and let this guy cross over from country to whatever! Wherever he lands, it's rock and roll at it's gritty best. The arranging is shocking, the lyrics are tough, the beat is strong on Electric, the talent is deep, and it is precisely as the title advertises: Electric. From "Keep On Keepin' On" with its steady determination to the sweet and lonely " Good Night Moon" each track has a surprise for the listener. The grating and discordant surprise of "Pete, Jesus and Me" gives the gospel song a true modern edge, but my favorite is the plaintive "One Lie Away", the soulful lament of one whose path is not easy. Is it biographical? Jack does not choose the simplest path, but his critical success speaks for itself. Not one of theses songs can be said to sound like any of the others; the diversification of a true talent is showcased here.
It is great to see a talented young artist breaking open the mold of roadhouse Texas music and adding a real edge to the expected country formula. Jack has always been hard to classify, but calling him and his work alternative, roots, Americana or whatever cannot disguise the heart of a rocker for long. This album is a wild offering from a multi-talented artist and represents yet another dimension for Jack Ingram. Thankfully, Electric made it past the mediocrity of the powers that be at Sony Nashville, and the public should be grateful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep On Keepin' On, Jack! September 30, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Warning...this album requires intelligence, taste and depth.
I've heard all of Jack's albums and have greatly enjoyed listening to him evolve as an artist. He is a song writer's song writer with an inate ability to tell it just like it is. I have to admit on first pass I was shocked by the rockin' edge difference in Electric from Jack's other albums. But on 2nd and now the 200th listen I keep coming back for more. Electric is just that...electric! I appreciate lots of things about Jack's music on this album, but mostly I admire his willingness to tell the truth, agility in prose, and passion about staying true to the music as he loves it. My favorite tracks are Fool, What Makes You Say (co-written with Bruce Robison), One Thing and I Won't Go With Her. Without reservation I recommend this album. I further recommend catching Jack at a live show during his Electric tour-the 'One Thing' better than this album is hearing Jack & the Beat-Up Ford Band perform it live!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack's Electric is High-Powered Wattage June 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Jack Ingram's new album is just what it says it is, "Electric!" This time out he has jacked up the wattage to give us a more edgy look at what makes him tick. Most of the songs were written by Jack and his songwriter friends except one, the last one, "Goodnight Moon," a lovely haunting ballad that will remain in your memory long after the notes have disappeared into the ether.
And check out "Keep on keeping on," a mantra for today's new world after 9/11.
All of the songs are great and Jack has made an eclectic mix - a little of everything for his many fans. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! June 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Jack steps up to the plate and delivers once again. If you liked "Hey You" you'll be delighted with more of the same hard driving alt-country melodies in "Electric". I've been anxiously waiting for this CD after hearing him play a few of these tunes last year in Milwaukee at a rained out Gill Fest turned indoors to the delight of a much smaller crowd. Listen to this one till the grooves grow old...
