Reverend Horton Heat ~ It's Martini Time
The good news is that Al Jourgensen from Ministry was not put in charge of producing this Reverend Horton Heat album. After his hack job on Liquor in the Front, it's no wonder this Texas psycho-billy trio opted for a real producer (Thom Panunzio) rather than a rock star. As a result, It's Martini Time sounds amazing!
The bad news is that the album is an up-and-down affair. The blazing, wide-open rockers totally kick ass, while "loungy" tunes such as the title track come off sounding a little too contrived. Thankfully, a couple of hilarious moments--particularly on the homoerotically themed "Cowboy Love"--provide some welcome comic relief. Overall, though, there are more heavy-hitting rock songs on It's Martini Time than on previous releases; the Rev's country/blues/rockabilly roots are being subdued behind a wall of distortion and jackhammer drumming. That's not to say this record doesn't have some classic moments. Your average Reverend Horton Heat fan will no doubt dig the energy and find the subpar songs easy enough to ignore. --Adem Tepedelen
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Tracks like Big Red Rocket of Love, Time to Pray, and It's Martini Time are rockin', rollin' tunes that any rock fan should appreciate. Crooked Cigarette and Slingshot are of a more mellow, foot tapping speed that does a nice job of balancing out the disc.
If not for on-line mp3s, I never would have heard the stuff that makes these guys worth the money. Now I have to add the rest to my collection. Why can't radio be more like this? Donate your cash today good disciple. Support The Reverend Horton Heat.
If ya love Horton Heat, you'll love this record. Because he never puts out a bad one. If you're looking for maturity & growth, go find some wimpy emo band playing in a coffee shop. This ain't that band. Just another smokin' hot collection of 14 great songs. You get psychobilly speedsters, mid-tempo romps & a couple more vintage "send-up" songs that are bring-you-to-your-knees funny. Highlights include "Big Red Rocket Of Love," "Slow," It's Martini Time," "Crooked Cigarette" & "Now, Right Now." Xtra credit for the "brokeback" song "Cowboy Love" which was put out long before the film "Brokeback Mountain" hit theatres and a new phrase was coined. And "That's Showbiz" ends this disc in a semi-serious, semi-comedic way that will want you to press play one more time around.
