After their last album, "How Big Can You Get?" I was left feeling slightly disappointed. You must understand, this is my favorite band ever. I've seen them at least 8 times, potentially more (I've totally lost count) and am aching to see them again. I've met the entire band after shows a few times, and even had dinner with Karl after a show one night. I also have a tattoo that features their original wolf head logo.

Anyway, the Cab Calloway tribute album was ok, but I have come accustom to expect an amazing album every time from BBVD and it let me down. With that, I was worried about this album. Had the lost their touch? Had they finally run out of great original material?

The answer is a resounding "No!" This album returns Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to what they are good at: writing and playing catchy tunes that make you want to get off your butt and dance. Every song is good, if not great. I get a huge smile on my face listening to this album. A particular favorite of mine is It Only Took a Kiss because it's the first original love song of theirs that my wife and I both heard for the first time while together. Another stand out for me is Gimmie That Wine. Drinking songs about wine always get me. Some other stand outs are Digga Digga Do, Why Me?, Rattle Them Bones, and... Hell, I love all of them.

Do yourself a favor and pick this album up. Show your support for this amazing band. May they never stop producing music that makes me want to Digga Digga Do!

These guys never disappoint. Seen them live, heard all their records. Get up and dance is all I can say. But first, buy this album. You won't stop dancing, singing and tap tap tapping.

I got a relatively early-day delivery of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's latest offering and this one does NOT disappoint!

The band's been together for 20 or so years, and no where is this more apparent than in the disc's third track, "The Jitters." This one will have you tapping your toes! The band's vocal talents are also self-evident when they ask the musical question, "Why me?"

BBVD get better and better with age!

This album is MOST STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!

I don't write many reviews so for me to do so I really have to enjoy what I'm listening to. Well, This is a wonderful album! I adore BBVD, I have since their very first album. I'm bias in that regard. But I can't help buy smile every time one of the songs on this albums shuffles onto through my playlist. So often now you don't hear musicians who put real effort into their playing. I am never disappointed with BBVD and always impressed with the talent in this band. The lyrics are uplifting, and beats make you want to dance and if you can't you still tap your toes with joy. I've already gotten my moneys worth just in happiness!

The wait is finally over. It's been nine years since the last proper Big Bad Voodoo Daddy album. The 2003 album, "Save My Soul," was a New Orleans-influenced love-letter to the pre-Katrina Big Easy. 2004 saw two releases, but they were a live album followed by a revised, expanded and improved version of the 1997 Christmas EP. Five long years later, we were treated to an album of Cab Calloway covers which was basically a vanity project. It was nice, but it was certainly not what the fans were hungering for.
But now "Rattle Them Bones" picks up right where "Save My Soul" left off. It's almost as if the past nine years was just an unusually long shipping delay.
The album begins with a bit of campy goodness called "The Adventures of..." which sounds like it was lifted right out of the soundtrack of a 1930's super-hero serial. We then slip right into three very old songs that have long been forgotten by all but the most diligent audiophile. "Diga Diga Do," "The Jitters," and "Let It Roll Again" pop with a vitality and clarity that the original versions would envy. "It Only Took a Kiss," the first proper original Scotty Morris composition of the album brings down the tempo with a sweet, romantic duet featuring Meaghan Smith. But then it's back to swinging business with three more original tracks, "She's Always Right (I'm Never Wrong)," "Why Me?" and "Devil's Dance." It may sound a cliché, but each of these is bigger and badder than the last. Next we take a sudden left turn with the unusual cover of an old Randy Newman track, "It's Lonely at the Top." The song was always meant to be ironic, but it sounds even more so coming from the humble and compassionate Scotty Morris. Another sweet ballad follows with "Still in the Mood." But the pace picks up again with "Gimme That Wine.
