Product Description

Jim Rome ~ Welcome To The Jungle

Amazon.com

Jim Rome is in-your-face brash, off-the-wall brilliant, and emphatically not a nice guy. From his syndicated radio talk show to televised spots on ESPN2, millions have followed this motor-mouthed sports punk into his imaginary "jungle," where athletics, politics, and show biz meet on the street to quarrel and brawl in hilariously deadpan rock-jock slang. To "run smack" on the air, Rome's "clones" must submit to the supreme Law of the Jungle: "Have a take and don't suck." On Welcome to the Jungle, their takes bound from NASCAR to karma, spelling bees to cops, helped by the Ramones, Flatt & Scruggs, Guns 'n Roses, and James Brown. The chilling humor of "Don King Did That" leads many tracks running to daylight in this anarchic stampede. Welcome to the Jungle is an "all that" CD--a spoken-word collection that rocks. And none of it sucks. --Alan Greenberg

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth 1/4 the price you pay April 25, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Take it from a long-time listener and huge fan of Jim Rome's: This CD is for neither those already acquainted with the show, nor for those curious sorts who are desirous of an introduction. An essential element of Rome's talent as a radio host is his incredible ability to improvise and never lose control of the direction of his show. He is always on top of a myriad of topics, sharp, and a very fast wit. His ability to deal spontaenously with any absurd or unexpected course the show may take is what drives the program and is a joy for the listener to be in the presence of. The CD provides none of this. Rather, it is a collage of now "famous" incidents from the Jungle's history, and is too tightly organized and scrupulously framed to ever resemble what actually occurs on the radio every day. Additionally the few tracks of bumper music included are a waste of space to my mind. If you don't know the show, listen to it firsthand. If you are a fan who wants to relive some great Jungle moments, do so in your own memory.

4.0 out of 5 stars V-Smack in CD form January 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I guess it was only a matter of time until Romey-Rome broke out with a disk to relive some classic Jungle moments. Jim Rome, a four hour staple of people without jobs and losers who still live with their parents i.e. "clones" will enjoy this disk as I did. This disk resets some of the best takes and smack Rome has to offer (mostly sports related). With the exception of some unfortunate music this is an awesome disk. Those of you in Crapchester and C-town may enjoy Guns n' Roses while trolling around in your IROCs, but most everyone else got tired of them about 6 years ago. So clones, go out and roll a homeless or twenty to purchase this. Uhhhh.. out

4.0 out of 5 stars It has scoreboard, period. November 8, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Clones, get the growlers out of your ears _ and pie holes. Welcome to The Jungle is pretty fresh. Yes, some "dated" material: What do you expect? Updates on the Newtered One on a CD pressed weeks ago? The latest on Moehlered Quarterbacks (pro and college)? Massive errrrrrrrrrs from Columbus after losing to the OTHER Michigan? Overall, great takes (especially NASCAR). It is a fresh way to get a take during the off hours, especially for affiliates where Rome isn't repeated. Those light on the stars are probably just the monkeys who are reluctant to add the third or four hours. Or Ray Lopez in disguise. Or retread sportcasters with road kill nailed to their dome. Jim, a great CD, I look forward to the next one. Out.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disaster... October 6, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was a great idea, and it just didn't pan out. The CD ends up being a greatest hits medley for Guns & Roses, Iggy Pop, and the Boomtown Rats. The only smack on the CD is pushed into one little corner... What a letdown. The whole show's premise is "Have a take, and do not suck, or you'll get run"... This disc has very, very few takes, and trust me clones- - it sucks very much. I am a huge fan of Rome and the Jungle. A typical day in the Jungle is 100 times as entertaining as this CD, and it pales in comparison to any Smack-off that I have ever heard. Verrrrry below average. If I had a choice of giving this disc half of a star instead of one Star, I'd have done so. Save your jack, listen to the show, and forget this disc. I'm out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Staged takes should get run October 15, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge Jim Rome fan and I looked forward to the cd. I was dissappointed because all of the smack that was run was "old smack" The only way to run old smack and make it work is to play the original takes when they were first run, possibly in a "best of" format. There is way too much Don King and his mindless dribble. I'll give the takes 2 stars and the music 2 1/2 stars. If you are a jungle clone, this is still worth the 5 hours of work you'll have to do to earn enough money to buy it. OUT

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a no tolerance Friday...Run the CD, I'm out! October 16, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge Rome fan but this CD was so disappointing. If I want tunes, I'll go buy the band's album. Clones, if you're looking for the Jungle, all you will find here is Romeper Room. Too many random cookie-cutter crap tunes from people I don't care about. I know less of the Clones and more of Rome is a good thing, but more than a couple takes would have been nice. Save your money. I'm out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only One Thing Can Explain This August 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love Jim Rome and I think that his show is brilliant. However, fitting all of that onto one CD is impossible. I gave this CD a 1 star because you can listen to his show for free and it is infinitely better. There is only one reason that I can give for Jim doing this...... THE MONEY!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some classic takes! November 13, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Some very funny takes from the Jungle (espeically Neck-car and spelling bee). I liked having the full versions of songs you hear on the Jungle. But they went overboard with the digital mixing on too many of the tracks. Maybe next time we'll just get a CD of Jim's takes.
