AllMusic Review by

With Danny Kortchmar on guitar and programming and Charlie Karp on guitar and vocals, this duo moves roots music into the 21st century with a unique blend of nasty guitars, sampled everything, and attitude galore. The synthesis of the overdubs and samples on Jimmy Liggins' "Drunk" is worth the price of admission alone. Harvey Brooks makes a guest appearance on "When the Clock Strikes 12" and his own "The Man Who Gave Himself the Blues." Other big-ticket highlights include "If I Get Rich," "Big Bad Luck," "Can't Kill Me Twice," "Why," and "Stranger in Your Town." A whole new way to look at roots music for sure.
