5.0 out of 5 stars Killer record, minus the last song May 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
To this day, this record stands as a high for straight-up, no-nonsense hard rock. Plus, it has what may be the coolest cover ever. And it uses a chainsaw as a musical instrument. Effectively, I might add.

There is a strong AC/DC-tinged blues influence here. The Jackyl sound is also heavily influenced by its southern location, especially evident in Jesse James Dupree's powerful and accent-laden voice. This is mixed with a heavy guitar tone to create a truly unique, instantly recognizable sound.

Though each and every track on this record is well-done, catchy and worthy of being a single, by far the most noticeable song is "The Lumberjack." Its basic construction is nothing new: an elementary, clichéd blues progression played at a relaxed swing tempo. What puts it over the top is the chainsaw solo.

Yes, a chainsaw solo. A bluesy chainsaw solo, cohesive, catchy and played in time. It is recreated outstandingly at concerts.

This became a defining trait of a Jackyl record: each album since has featured a "chainsaw song." Perhaps the only one to top "The Lumberjack," though, was "Headed for Destruction," from their sophomore release Push Comes to Shove. (In this track, they used a talk box to make it sound like the chainsaw was reciting the lines of the chorus.) Also, the song itself was a bit more original, with riffs instead of the cliché blues pattern. But I digress. "The Lumberjack" was unprecedented, and it forced people to listen.

The rest of the record is filled with southern rock `n' roll attitude, minus the confederate flags of Lynyrd Skynyrd or Pantera. There are songs about booze ("Brain Drain"), sex ("Dirty Little Mind") and all-around being a "Redneck Punk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure, Southern-Fried REDNECK PUNK!!! January 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit: I bought this CD for 50 cents at a garage sale, with no jewel case or liner notes, just the CD. I'd heard "The Lumberjack" late one night on my favorite classic rock radio station, as well as "Down On Me." Both these songs were good, but "The Lumbejack" blew me away, the first time I'd EVER heard a chainsaw solo in my life! And the thing was, it actually sounded GOOD! Anyway, back to the CD in question. The first time I listened to the entire CD was on a road trip, and I loved it from then on. Still do. Jackyl is like a mixture of AC/DC and Guns N Roses, with a lot of Southern flavor mixed in. Basically, as their song proclaims, they are Redneck Punk, pure and simple. And they know how to ROCK! Choice cuts: Just Like A Devil, I Stand Alone, The Lumberjack, Redneck Punk, Brain Drain, and Back Off Brother. If you like good hard rock, buy this CD and rock on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock the hell on December 20, 2002
By God
Format:Audio CD
I hadn't heard of Jackyl until about a year ago, but when I did, I immediately went out and bought this CD. Good thing I did. It is easily one of the best CDs in my extensive collection. It is an essential for every rock fan out there- and I don't mean this new-age Staind-type crap. I mean seat-of-your-pants, kick-ass guitar rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid August 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is by far the best that Jackyl has made. Every track is excellent. This album really brings back memories for me of my high school days. Plus, it has "She Love's My Cock".

3.0 out of 5 stars No ... ballad February 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
In the inner sleeve you can read: "This album does not contain any ...ballads or keyboard." This is in a way a clear declaration of what to expect on this very strong 3 star album from Jackyl.
As "I stand alone" starts off you know that this isn't Hair Metal! The song is built around a very heavy and attractive guitar riff and you can't avoid a little head-banging, or at least a bit of imaginary guitar playing. The voice of singer Jesse Dupree is rough and sounds a little bit like Krokus' Mark Storace or even Brian Johnson from AC/DC.
"Dirty little mind" and "Down on me" are two mid tempo rockers that would satisfy the average heavy metal fan. After three strong tunes, Jackyl decide to slow things down a bit in the heavy but slow "When will it rain". "Redneck punk" is a drum driven song and if southern hillbillys gave punk rock a shot it's not impossible it would sound something like this. "The lumberjack" is blues metal feautering a solo played on a chainsaw (!). Next to follow are "Reach for me" and "Back off brother", and `tho they're not great tunes they sure are good. "Brain drain" follows the same formula, and to be frank - by this time Jacky's songs seem to sound too much alike each other. My silent prayers get answered right away and "Just like a devil" shows Jackyl in their prime. The closing number "She loves my cook" is the albums low point.
Jackyl's follow up album "Push comes to shove" was a real disappointment and I lost interest in the band...

5.0 out of 5 stars KILLER! January 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Essential CD for any Jackyl fan (personally I have them all). This album ROCKS! I bought it when it came out just for "The Lumberjack" and was immediately hooked. When will it rain has become a favorite of mine as well as Dirty little mind, Redneck punk(awesome), Down on me, I stand alone, I could go on about this album for hours(and listen to it for hours). It still gets lots of play time here! Especially when I am home alone and can crank it up. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
