Southern Discomfort

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William York
Southern Discomfort gathers together tracks from three hard-to-find 7" releases, plus a few tracks recorded during the 1995 Dopesick sessions. Taking into account that the title track was later reworked and included on the 2000 release Confederacy of Ruined Lives as "Jack Ass in the Will of God", this CD actually contains songs from each of the band's first four studio albums.

The real space-eater, though, is the 16-minute "Dopesick Jam," which basically amounts to a gigantic medley of riffs and song fragments from throughout the band's career. Southern Discomfort may be aimed at more established fans, but in a roundabout way, it also provides a fairly good introduction to and retrospective of Eyehategod's music.
