Best in Show
Label: Mighty Loud
The boogie lumberjacks' seventh album in 20 years has quite the booming bottom: It's clear the rhythm section's been studying AC/DC records and early Rick Rubin productions long before they close with a stiff-rapped, Anthrax-spoofy take on Run-D.M.C.'s "It's Tricky." They ham up Dr. Hook's still-hilarious "Cover of The Rolling Stone," too, adding an obligatory chainsaw solo. But up top, Jesse James Dupree's lecherous jibber-jabber mostly stays garbled -- give or take "Golden Spookytooth," which swipes so much from Aerosmith's "Lord of the Thighs" that Steve Tyler deserves a co-writing credit.
