Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

To call the Drive-By Truckers an alt-country band is a disservice--to the Truckers and their Buzzcocks-meet-the-Outlaws brand of punk-rock twang, as well as to most alt-country bands, which hardly belong in the same county as DBT, let alone borrowing the same genre. This remastered re-release of the Alabama foursome’s 1999 sophomore record picks up where its debut album Gangstabilly (also re-issued by New West Records) left off--fruitful storyteller Patterson Hood and his cotton-drawl vocals bobbing and weaving through the trepidations and peculiarities of his life in the Deep South. The Truckers abstain from some of the white-trash bulls-eyes and volume 11 blasters on their debut for a 14-song hootenanny about riding bulldozers in red clay, a reclusive uncle, giving up sex for the Lord, and a Memphis performance by the late shock-rocker G.G. Allin. The bluesy sing-a-long "Nine Bullets" features one round of lead for each of Hood’s adversaries, but two songs later he harmoniously reminisces his great-grandmother in "Box of Spiders." It’s a remarkable divergence that drives Pizza Deliverance and sets the table for the Southern Rock Opera that comes next. - Scott Holter

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't...stop...listening! November 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The Drive-By Truckers stand out in the current crop of indie rockers...they don't play whiny college rock and they don't fuse hip-hop and metal as current fashion dictates. They are throwbacks to the dinosaur rock of the 70's, yet their lyrics are far more inventive and meaningful than those that came before them.
Pizza Deliverance is a great way to get to know the Truckers. Live staples like "Bulldozers and Dirt" and "Uncle Frank" are here but it's a few of the lesser-known tracks that stand out for me. "Love Like This" is the coolest Southern Rock/ballad ever written (sung by guitarist Mike Cooley, who you don't get to hear often enough) with its tales of abuse and codependancy. "The Night GG Allin Came To Town" made me laugh the first time I heard it, but it's the portrayal of Southern boredom ("might as well drink until we pass out again") that stays with you after the more obvious lines roll by. And "The Company I Keep" is the track that makes this officially a drinkin' record. "Sometimes I'm so high that I'm scared to go to sleep/ Sometimes I'm lower than the company I keep," it's a reminder that sometimes you turn into the one that your mother warned you about.
For lovers of heavy music, you can't go wrong with the Truckers. Don't let the Southern rock descriptions turn you off if you're wincing and imagining .38 Special rockin' out with Black Oak Arkansas. These guys are like Crazy Horse...heavy as hell and intelligent to boot. If they don't get their due it's a sin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Alt-country from Alabama October 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The music they perform sort of a mixture of Uncle Tupelo, Bottle Rockets and other energetic country bands. Don't be driven away by the cartoonish cover and their choice of song titles for behind all of that is real quality and a sincere appreciation for music. It is their fine musicianship and an intelligent song writing that stands out from so many bland "middle-of-the-road" Alt-country bands out today. Plus, their live shows are louder than hell and they never take breaks (except for PBR).

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweeter with time December 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is just like its title -- it gets better each time you hear it.

When I first bought the album, I thought it was the weak link of my Truckers collection. But one year and about 100 listens later, I found myself in a Tuscaloosa coffee shop asking Patterson before a concert to play more from it. You don't find much more Southern honesty than from DBT, especially in Pizza Deliverance. His stories of a great grandmother who was "too mean to die," a desire to use his roommate's gun to get rid of some of the annoyances in his life, relations with an older woman and his sister-in-law, and attending a G.G. Allen concert with fellow DBT singer Mike Cooley are too good lyrically not to hear. And by the way, if you think this guy can tell a tale, you ought to hear him elaborate on some of the songs in concert. Still, Cooley's the best lyricists of the three singers, and Jason Isbell was a perfect addition starting with Decoration Day.

5.0 out of 5 stars 99% Killer and 1% Filler May 31, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This was the Trucker's second album, but was pretty much the songs they toured on when they first started out. In the liner notes, Patterson Hood states that they basically wanted to capture all those tunes even though "Gangstabilly" was the first release. This album has a lot of songs on it. As a result, the album seems kind of long to me, but really, there's only maybe one annoying song on the whole album. So, 13/14 ain't too bad.

First, the annoying one: "The President's Penis is Missing" is basically a jokey-jokey song not only about Clinton but a whole bunch of former U.S. presidential affairs. Might have been funny at the time, but seeing as how I got this CD in the middle of Bush's second term, it's outdated, and the music sounds like it belongs in a circus act. And for those of you keeping political score at home - it's neither defending or condemning these affairs, but just basically says it is what it is.

I'm not going to do a blow by blow of the rest of the tunes. They're all pretty great in their own way, and my favorites change depending on the day of the week. One notable is "The Company I Keep." To me, this is classic Patterson Hood. Just like Robert Plant claims "Kashmir" is the quintessential Led Zeppelin tune, "The Company I Keep" is THE ANTHEM of the DBT. Again, it's not my favorite tune, but the chorus is catchy as all get-out.

Mike Cooley's tunes, "Uncle Frank" and "One of These Days" are always in my head. If you google the Tennessee Valley Authority you'll find tons of sites discussing how great it was for Alabama. "Uncle Frank" tells the story from a different opinion. "One of These Days" seems to be about a rite of passage to me, or at least how different places and events can change a person.

"Pizza Deliverance" should have been an indication that these guys were destined for great things.

4.0 out of 5 stars southern fried with a pinch of punk December 11, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
These guys are the real deal. They prove that southern rock can rawk, without being corny. Excellent, hilarious songwriting combined with searing guitars and Patterson Hood's winsome, world-weary vocals evoke memories of skynryd, but with a very modern sensibility. They write songs about swingers, prozac and paranoid vietnam veteran uncles - all with a healthy dose of humor and the feeling that they know their subjects all to well. If you get a chance to see 'em live you won't be sorry.
