Label: Mighty Loud 2012
Review by: Urban "Wally" Wallstrom
Tacky rears its ugly head again!! The return of U.S. Georgia's Jackyl surely must be every music fans nightmare? Blimey, we're still trying to erase the horrible memory of "The Lumberjack" outta' our head (no doubt one of the worst moments in metal?). That darn chainsaw -still at work on "Best In Show" and it's the kind of rock 'n roll that could possible only please your White Trash neighbors that have never read a book or been sober in their entire life. It's the same reason why some people only eat at McDonalds, it's fast, cheap, and full of sh***y ingredients???
Ehem, that's a bit harsh and elit-ish? since we certainly do enjoy a burger every now and then. But c'mon, the lyrics are worse than Manowar's and the songs are the leftover from the utter dull albums by Ted Nugent (If you can't lick 'em, etc) and any third rate biker/sleaze act of the past. Here's a bumper sticker for your car: You know you are White Trash if you're a Jackyl fan! But hey, don't let my grumpy opinion stop you from making your own mind up. And just for the record, white trash - not the same as working class or blue collar.
