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!

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.

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.

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...

If you are a southern hard rock fan, this is a terrific band for you to try out...as long as you aren't offended by explicit lyrics or content, that is. More conservative people will NEVER allow their children to listen to or buy this album! Jackyl is pure southern orneryness, or, hard rocking music with a southern rock flair, and they are unabashedly horny, lewd, rude, crude and socially unacceptable and, there, not for the faint of heart! But for those who appreciate them for who and what they are and get a kick out of what they have to say, hey, go out and buy their music because they won't disappoint. They are actually very nice southern born and raised guys who love and appreciate all of their fans and the fan support they receive. Me and my wife actually got to meet them at Rock USA Oshkosh 2013 because at the close of their show they announced they would be in the merch tent and wanted to meet and greet all of their fans who wanted to meet them. I think they stood in the merch tent for at least three, if not four, hours, shaking hands, getting pictures taken, signing autographs, and when my wife told Jesse James Dupree she was a huge Jackyl fan, he put his hand over his heart and then planted a huge kiss on her cheek, and so did another band member, although she didn't know which one. That's what I mean about them really loving their fans! I really think you will love their music.
