Honestly, it is hard for me to rate this record; on one hand, Big & Rich are my favorite musical act of all time. On the other, the reality that this album is not as good as the duo's previous releases is painfully obvious. But don't let that skeptical remark fool you: if you like Big & Rich (as in, if you like more of their songs than "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)") then you will probably like "Hillbilly Jedi." If you were never that fond of Big & Rich, nothing here will change your mind. This is one of those slightly formulaic records ("formulaic" meaning in terms of the artist(s) in question) that everyone will have a different opinion of.

It has been a long wait, but Big Kenny and John Rich are back. Judging from a pre-release listen to the opening track "Born Again," I was expecting this effort to be a welcome return to form for the duo after the overly mainstream sound of "Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace" in 2007 (not that I disliked the album, it just didn't take any risks). I was partly right, but it depends on which "form" one is thinking of. B&R's patented Country/rock/hick hop sound is back and Cowboy Troy is even thrown in for good measure, but the weird humor of "Horse of a Different Color" and "Comin' to Your City" is again absent. You might think otherwise based on the rather silly title of the record, but with the exception of "M-E-D-L-E-Y of the Hillbilly Jedi" nothing here is much more adventurous than what you would hear on modern Country radio, some odd sound effects notwithstanding. It's too bad that the rest of the album isn't like the closing track; that one would fit in nicely on any of the duo's previous works.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK - not great November 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, this cd continues the trend that Big and Rich CDs just don't measure up to their first one. Jedi just doesn't have the same spirit Horse of a Different Color had.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid yes but I can see why people don't agree. November 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'm a HUGE fan of B&R since "Horse Of A Different Colour", even of John's then-unreleased 1999 solo debut...I love their mix of loud powerpop, unique irreverent humour, hiphop, dance remix-friendliness and country roots, done in such a way that they don't fit in anywhere, not alt-country, not mainstream country, not what constitutes alt-rock or even mainstream pop or hiphop...B&R invented their own kind of crazy country rap powerpop hybrid, and it's fearless, inventive, fun and serious in equal doses...who else would dare cover AC/DC's standard "You Shook Me All Night Long" as a country swing tune?? And make it work??

I enjoy all of their releases and solo works, some better than others, and I was excited about their reunion with first the track "Fake ID" with Gretchen Wilson from Footloose 2011...why isn't it on this album??? Now I have to buy that soundtrack when I wanted to avoid it...now "Hillbilly Jedi"...cool title I thought, very B&R...yes Bon Jovi is on it and nothing wrong with that...I like their songs and so do B&R...Cowboy Troy is back too, very cool...I got the album late because of real life getting in the way and too many releases by people I collect out new in a short space of time...plus I heard they made a vidclip of every song on this record, so there may be a deluxe...maybe "Fake ID" as a bonus track??

Anyhoo, what struck me most about this record is the songwriting...really MELODIC powerpop...the country elements are not as prominent here...also neither is the humour, which is just on the final cut "Medley Of The Hillbilly Jedi", and it's just them goofing off over a country swing track...not funny but amusing, which is OK, I'll take it...I have a feeling that humour would have disrupted the flow of the record.

I love Big & Rich. I went to one of their concerts before they split. I was worried they would never get back together. Now, they are back!! Great music.

The music and songs are OK but the only reason I bought it was because my sister insisted. I've listened to it once and probably won't again.

Great CD. I think it is their best effort yet. Big and Rich can do it all together. They have a way with lyrics, and their musical talent.

Oh great, more of these guys to "look forward" to
Just one question....how many songs have you heard by "these wannabes", besides 'Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy'? Not many, I'd bet. If you had, you'd know how great they really are, both as singers AND songwriters. Check out the songs '8th of November', 'Lost In This Moment' and 'Holy... Read More
