First off, this is not swing music. When I first heard the music I was expecting something overly slick like all the other Vegas-esque acts out there. Not so! This is butt kicking rock/jump blues. It has more punk influence than swing, and damn is that a good thing. Don't get me wrong I love the old swing stuff. However, in the spirit of Louis Jordan these guys take it up a notch. John Bunkley may very well be one of the most daring vocalists to date. He shouts like an old blues shouter, but phrases with more of an edge; way up on top of the beat and with a lot of heat. Frankly, without him, the band would sound a bit lame. With him, they are quite the treat for cliche' worn ears.

One of the wildest neo-swing bands ever heard. Really powerful swing. Songs like The Man with the Hex, Swing Sweet Pussycat, Caviar and Chitlins are the highlights on this album. Lover Lies is a wonderful ballad (that Tom Waits could sing). Very enjoyable and danceable album.

One of my first experiences with swing dancing involved the song: Man With The Hex. Interested in the song I bought this CD, and I am infinitely glad that I did. This is definately one of my alltime favorite CDs. I'm sure a lot of people won't like this CD, because its very atypical. If you want to lindy to it forget about it. This music is wonderful to East Coast to, and also great to listen to! And that voice... You just have to hear it to appreciate it. Its perfect. Now, some people were complaining that the songs were similar. So. They are all good. I'd rather have a CD chock full of great songs, than a CD with a few great songs, and then a bunch of other stuff thats not nearly as good just to be different. If you could only buy 1 swing CD, this wouldn't be it, because, the songs are very similar. But it make an excellent addition to anyones swing library. I reccomend this to ANYONE who like neo-swing. I love this CD!

I bought this CD when it first came out cause I got a free sticker in the mail to advertise it. I figured it sounds like a cool album, then when I bought it home I listened to it and I was blown away. I litterally fell off my seat, the singer has a voice like that combines Louie Armstrong with the lead sing of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. He just sounds so cool, especially on songs like "Lover Lies" and it also has the ability to rip it up in songs like "Calypso King", and "Flower in Sand" and with those groovin' horn licks This is CD is Golden.

This is a great CD. If you like real jazz and real swing, you will love the songs here.

This is classic style swing with new songs and it is performed with energy and talent and skill and joy.

If you like any type of music and do not like this, you have a hole in your soul.

Don't have a hole in your soul, buy it, rate it, spread the word.

These guys were ahead of their time. Great music, especially when you're driving home late in the day and getting a little drowsy. Drop this in the slot, turn up the volume, and "the man with the hex" will have you joining the chorus. "Melt me a pine cone"

Bunkley and the band really tear it up on this CD. It's a hoot!

WOW, this is a great CD. Lover Lies is the only slow song on this CD. Drink Drank Drunk has a phenominal begining, and all the other song's are very good as well. They are a little repetitive with their lyrics but it still sounds great. A must have.

If you like the swing music of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Cherry Poppin' Daddies then you will love The Atomic Fireballs Torch This Place.
