AllMusic Review by

Some Rezeev giggles out of the gates with a goofy spoken word intro that sets the tone for the entire album, aquatinting listeners with the band members and preparing them for the wacky circus that is the Ghettobillies. The songs are laugh-out-loud funny acoustic tunes featuring heartfelt vocals and charming harmonies, which makes the subject matter seem even stranger. "My First Porno" recounts Reverend C. Cobb's preteen introduction to the world of blue movies; "Dr. Love" tells the story of a proctologist with a tender touch, served up Dixieland style with some gritty trumpet work by Matt Collar trading licks with saxophonist Craig Hayward; and the laments of a two-lane cowboy are expressed on Enzo Garcia's banjo-driven "Crack Drivin' Trucker." The acoustic trio's sparse sound is filled out throughout the album by keyboardists Kendall Babl and Billy Noah, cellist Hans Anderson, drummers Andy Taylor and Mike Schiller, programmer Dykehouse, vocalist Rebecca Anderson, and multi-instrumentalist/producer Chris Gooseman. Quirky disco, street-style bluegrass, and dirty folk are all represented in Some Rezeev's 13 songs, all showcasing the comedic lyrics of these twisted individuals.
