CD Reviews

Giving Something Back
Sarah | California | 01/03/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Giving Something Back is such an awesome cd. You really start to make a personal connection to the band with this record. They weren't as powerful live back then as they are now, but it's still a great cd. You really start to see their personalities shine through, like frontman Jimi Haha's humor. It's also the only cd where you can get the song "React", which is wonderful, and "Vacuum". If you like Pushing the Salmanilla Envelope, then you will love this. All of your favorites off of that album are alive and kicking on this one."

"I first heard jimmie's chicken shack when a friend brought there first major label release over adn tried to get me to play it on my guitar. That is when the affair started. since then i have bought every album they have. i bought this one while i was at a concert of The Shacks. The concert was awesome and so is this band, the cd does a great job of showing their energy live adn how much they can control a crowd. So if you want a great live cd adn you like good "mutt rock" as they are called, buy this album. i dont think you will be sorry."
Truly a triumph

"None of the available JCS albums does the band justice in terms of raw energy. "Giving somethingback" gives the listener only a small taste of the live performance - the forum in which this band truly shines. Although now down to two original members, JCS is still forging new areas of music with their self-proclaimed "mutt-rock"."
