Jack 1

10 songs of fun, interesting & grunge-groove infused rock, What ‘m I Getting High On? starts things off with the bass heavy Primetime. An energetic number that really gets the juices flowing; the production on the album is top notch stuff. Every note, sequel of a guitar, bass drop & vocal line is perfectly clear.

Those who enjoy their grunge sound will get a kick out of the slower, Soon Back Home. Coming so soon after the up-tempo first two songs it’s lacking in vibrant energy but is an incredibly comforting piece of music.

The groovy pace is brought back for Shitting Blood & the fantastic, move your body to the music, Sgrunt. The best song on the album, it’s imaginative, unique & so catchy!

Any doubts that One Eyed Jack haven’t produced a killer of an album is put to bed with the softer, The Edge of the Soul. Bringing back a more modern grunge sound (Alice in Chains) it is a vast improvement over Soon Back Home. The longest song on the album, it’s one you just don’t want to end. Beautiful melody, great guitar work & heart-wrenching vocals.

Daily Abuse & Drama Shit’s up beat riffing keeps things ticking along nicely before the moody & bass led beat of Washyall lays some more grungy sounds on you.

What ‘m I Getting High On? ends on the excellent Dog Fight. A finish filled with great melody, haunting vocals that are tinged with emotion & a final hard rocking flourish that makes you want to punch the air in joy. It’s a sad farewell to an incredible album.
