Hotter than Satan's Own Sauce Piquante!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This CD changed my life! Back in the late '80s, I was content to listen passively to jangly REM and mopey Smiths tunes... that is, until I bought myself a copy of BOILED ALIVE! This record resurrects the spirit of Hank Williams, Howlin'Wolf (he's dead, isn't he?), Johnny Ace, Jimi Hendrix and Sid Vicious all at once. From the opening "BUUUUURP" of the band on the live mic to the last kerrang of Bill Davis' mighty axe, this CD rocks you like a class 5 hurricane. You can't help but bang your head to the Williams classic "Jambalaya" --wait a minute-- bang your head? Sure. And what of the raunchy cover of the schmaltzy Helen Reddy tome "Delta Dawn"? Quite simply the definitive version, I say. So, if you're a young'un, a-listenin' to your Oasis and your Backstreet Boys, and you feel like you oughta pay homage to the rock and roll messiahs, flip this disc onto your digital doodad and get yourself BOILED ALIVE!"
