Jackpot Rocks!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, I got his cd already being a huge Jackpot fan. I wasn't sure what to expect, but this cd blew me away! Their sound is pretty mellow, in fact so mellow that when my sister and I were listening to it on the freeway, we missed our exit cuz we had gotten so into the music. Rusty, the lead singer, has a gorgeous voice that sounds like a mixture of the singer from Coldplay(minus the British accent), and the singer from Counting Crows. The cd starts out with the song, "Far Far Away" which totally gets into your head and mellows you out. "Hide in the Frequency" is one of my favorite songs on the album because it's catchy and fun, while still staying totally musically legit. The cd is very eclectic as it ranges from almost country sounding songs, to more rock, and from funny songs to serious and sad ones. The song "When You Leave" is such a sweet song that anyone can relate to. Rusty has such a talent at writing lyrics, especially ones that catch your attention. They're the kind that make you say, "wait, wut? did he actually say that?" His sense of humor keeps a lightness to the cd. I mean, come on, the guy wrote a song called "Psycho Ballerina"! One great example of his quirky lyrics is when he says, "you can't take away my feet, I kill monsters in my sleep." or "i can't be a super-man, cuz no one is really super, but I'll steal the neighbor's cat with you." If you like good music, this cd has to be part of you collection. It's totally worth the money, this band is so awsome and totally going places! check out their website:"
