Bouncing back from the setback of Sacrilecious, the Supersuckers recorded their most ambitious album with Must've Been High. Using their garagey, post-hardcore punk as a launching pad, they delve deeply into country, even recording with Willie Nelson on one cut. Tellingly, the Supersuckers sound their best when they go for a snotty update of cowpunk -- compared with their metal and Stooges-obsessed contemporaries, the band sounds positively fresh with the little bit of twang. There are a couple of shaky moments, but overall, Must've Been High is an intoxicating concoction of fiery riffs, goofy humor and punk attitude.
