Big Ass Truck first released this disc on Peacock Records in 1998. Reissued in 2000 on Terminus Records, the songs remain the same and are right on time. Who Let You in Here? mixes timely funk, groove rock, and splashes of turntablism hip-hop to defy easy categorization. Like Medeski Martin and Wood and Booker T and the MG's, Big Ass Truck capably assumes a mixed bag of thick soul and modern rock moods. Heavy hitting tracks "The Neco" and "3X Over Grant" segue easily into the more mellow "Hands of a Working Man." With seamless scratching and sampling, the whole thing somehow comes together without a hitch. Big Ass Truck delivers something old, something new, something borrowed, and something all its own.
