Choice Cuts

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Jackyl were always an anachronism in the '90s. Arriving at the peak of grunge, the group -- whose members worshiped at the altar of AC/DC, Mötley Crüe, and David Lee Roth -- managed a minor hit with the novelty "Lumberjack Song," basically because some listeners found Jesse James Dupree's chainsaw solos kinda neat. Although they managed to eke out a career, it was all downhill from there, with only the second single from the debut, "Down on Me," making much of an impression on the public at large. Between 1992 and 1997, the group released four albums on three different labels, each one receiving less attention than its predecessor. So, 1998 was the perfect time ...

Jackyl were always an anachronism in the '90s. Arriving at the peak of grunge, the group -- whose members worshiped at the altar of AC/DC, Mötley Crüe, and David Lee Roth -- managed a minor hit with the novelty "Lumberjack Song," basically because some listeners found Jesse James Dupree's chainsaw solos kinda neat. Although they managed to eke out a career, it was all downhill from there, with only the second single from the debut, "Down on Me," making much of an impression on the public at large. Between 1992 and 1997, the group released four albums on three different labels, each one receiving less attention than its predecessor. So, 1998 was the perfect time for a hits compilation -- their career as hitmakers was essentially over, but "The Lumberjack Song" was still fresh in the minds of Gen-Xers, thereby suggesting that the record might move. Fortunately, Choice Cuts delivers everything anyone could ever want from a Jackyl compilation -- "The Lumberjack Song." Seriously, folks, there's more than that -- there are all the other highlights from the four albums, plus three new songs including a cover of Grand Funk's timeless anthem "We're an American Band." Those new cuts may not be enough to entice hardcore fans to purchase the collection, but they add some weight to Choice Cuts, helping it become the definitive Jackyl retrospective.
