Jim Rome is in-your-face brash, off-the-wall brilliant, and emphatically not a nice guy. From his syndicated radio talk show to televised spots on ESPN2, millions have followed this motor-mouthed sports punk into his imaginary "jungle," where athletics, politics, and show biz meet on the street to quarrel and brawl in hilariously deadpan rock-jock slang. To "run smack" on the air, Rome's "clones" must submit to the supreme Law of the Jungle: "Have a take and don't suck." On Welcome to the Jungle, their takes bound from NASCAR to karma, spelling bees to cops, helped by the Ramones, Flatt & Scruggs, Guns 'n Roses, and James Brown. The chilling humor of "Don King Did That" leads many tracks running to daylight in this anarchic stampede. Welcome to the Jungle is an "all that" CD--a spoken-word collection that rocks. And none of it sucks. --Alan Greenberg

"Take it from a long-time listener and huge fan of Jim Rome's: This CD is for neither those already acquainted with the show, nor for those curious sorts who are desirous of an introduction. An essential element of Rome's talent as a radio host is his incredible ability to improvise and never lose control of the direction of his show. He is always on top of a myriad of topics, sharp, and a very fast wit. His ability to deal spontaenously with any absurd or unexpected course the show may take is what drives the program and is a joy for the listener to be in the presence of. The CD provides none of this. Rather, it is a collage of now "famous" incidents from the Jungle's history, and is too tightly organized and scrupulously framed to ever resemble what actually occurs on the radio every day. Additionally the few tracks of bumper music included are a waste of space to my mind. If you don't know the show, listen to it firsthand. If you are a fan who wants to relive some great Jungle moments, do so in your own memory."

"I guess it was only a matter of time until Romey-Rome broke out with a disk to relive some classic Jungle moments. Jim Rome, a four hour staple of people without jobs and losers who still live with their parents i.e. "clones" will enjoy this disk as I did. This disk resets some of the best takes and smack Rome has to offer (mostly sports related). With the exception of some unfortunate music this is an awesome disk. Those of you in Crapchester and C-town may enjoy Guns n' Roses while trolling around in your IROCs, but most everyone else got tired of them about 6 years ago. So clones, go out and roll a homeless or twenty to purchase this. Uhhhh.. out"

"This CD was not at all cool. What was it? A few funny parts (sports, cops) the rest was just noise! I've spent better money."
