"I am a major fan of the Jerky Boys. That said, listening to this CD was painful, especially when one is aware just how clever and funny the duo can be.The thought that kept running through my head was "Are these the bits that wound up on the editing floor of the first three CDs?"
Many of the calls are really mean spirited and humorless(especially the Jeapordy bit). Other calls just seem to ramble and go nowhere. This is not vintage Jerky Boys.The one redeeming bit on this album is Sol Rosenberg's phone call in an attempt to banish Howard Stern from the airwaves... only problem is he calls the Food and Drug Administration, thinking they could assist him with such his troubles. I thoroughly enjoyed the first three Jerky Boys releases. Jerky Boys 4? Forget about it!"
The Party's Over

"The first three Jerky Boys albums represented the finest in crank-call comedy. (That may seem like faint praise, but it's true.) This fourth album, though, borders on embarrassment. It's an obviously-rushed product of low-to-middling quality, which shows a fair amount of desperation on the part of the Jerkys.
Note the second call, 'Need To Dance.' There's not a single laugh on it, and it's basically just the Jerkys' 'gay' character yelling back and forth with an annoyed guy from a production company. The 'prank' totally doesn't work, but it goes on minute after minute. Many of the calls feel the same way, and half the time, the person on the other end obviously knows they're being pranked, and just laugh to themselves. It seems like the joke is on the Jerkys at that point, as they desperately keep their shtick going despite the fact that their 'victim' is on to them.
There are a few laughs here, but it's obvious that the Jerkys were done for at this point. Stick with the first three albums."
Come on, baby, it's the Jerky Boys!

"This was the fourth album by crank callers the Jerky Boys, as if you couldn't guess that from the title. Each Jerky Boys album is slightly less funny than the previous one, but this one still made me laugh out loud several times. Sure, it's stupid and ridiculous, but I still find it amusing. The last track here is a dance song that incorporates bits from some of the Boys' calls."
