Review by: ToddStar

You never know what you are gonna get when a random CD shows up in your mailbox.  One of these moments struck when the latest from Juggernaught wound up in my hands.  Open the envelope and I am even more unsure of what is going to happen when I put this in the player.  “Bad Idea” comes in with some 70’s flavored guitar riffs and a bit of a fusion feel to it.  “Train” picks up and after a slow transition, the tempo of the track is picked up and features a cool riff and some solid playing from the rhythm section.  “The Storm” is next and it is exactly that.  The song builds like a storm, slow and sure.  The guitar work is cool and the bluesy playing from the band sounds great.  The vocals here are much like the rest, except they seem mismatched to the music here.  “Beef Or Chicken” is an uptempo rocker that has a drummer working his ass off keeping time and loading the song with fills.  “Back Door Woman” is another blues track that features some good playing and some vocals that don’t quite line up.  The best line on the disc has to be in this song, when the vocalist utters, “don’t wanna love you like a fat man loves a pie.”  The double entendre is full on in this track.

“Booty Call” follows and has a really cool guitar riff and different tribal feel to the track.  The vocals actually fit this song well.  When the song kicks into high gear, hold on, because these guys want to take you on a journey.  “Bring The Meat Back” is a jam that doesn’t seem to fit the rest of the disc.  “Follow The Scent Of The Musky Brisket” continues in the same vein as the previous track, except the guitar work is much better here.  “Wors” is a cool jam track that features a bluesy groove that really adds a little dimension to the disc.  This track would make a great live jam that doesn’t need any lyrics or vocals.  “One Of Them Days” branches out and seems to build on teh last track, in the way it adds a little dimension.  Some of the guitar work is intricate and is noticable.  “Paint It Brown” is the band wrapping up the project with a balls out track that seems to turn the corner and feature solid rock guitar and drumming, but I still think they do the bluesy stuff better.
