Product Description

Reverend Horton Heat ~ It's Martini Time

Amazon.co.uk

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

HASH(0x9e69fe94) out of 5 stars Reverend Horton Heat - 'It's Martini Time' (Interscope) 3 1/2 stars 23 July 2005
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Basically, if you like good old fashioned straight ahead rockabilly with a 'swing' attitude, you should finding this CD appealing. I've always been sort of a fair weather fan of the Reverend and his rocking trio. This disc is probably one of two of his titles I even have a copy of. The absolute best cut here is without a doubt in my mind "Now, Right Now" with other notable tracks being "Big Red Rocket Of Love" (sounds like a South Park episode, doesn't it?), title cut "It's Martini Time", the foot-stomper "Rock The Joint" and "Forbidden Jungle". Definitely, a should-have.

HASH(0x9e69fee8) out of 5 stars All praise the Reverend!! 9 April 2001

The Reverend Horton Heat can slam you silly. The Reverend can use his holy powers to make you swing and snap the fingers baby. What else can be said except, "Get this disc"? Some have said this is not thier best work. if this is the case you should probably get this one first and see how good thier "bad" stuff is.
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.

HASH(0x9e6a384c) out of 5 stars Who says it's not good?? 19 Jun. 2002
By Carol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the second of the Rev's albums I've bought, and despite what the other reviewers thought, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I must say it's not as good as "Smoke 'em..." but I loved it nonetheless. Great guitar licks and tongue-in-cheek lyrics make for a great listening experience.

HASH(0x9e6a3708) out of 5 stars The Call Up 26 May 2009
By Markus Pacal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well...The Reverend has hit it big. After recording 3 records for Sub Pop, the band jumped to a major label & put out "It's Martini Time" on Interscope back in '96. In addition, their drummer, Taz, left to go work w/ Izzy Stradlin on "110 Degrees" & current Supersucker, Scott Churilla, took over the drum stool.

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.

HASH(0x9e6a3cd8) out of 5 stars a mixed bag 17 Jan. 2006
By Happy Harry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are some great songs on this one, notably "Big Red Rocket of Love" and the title track, but a lot of it feels like filler. "Crooked Cigarette" and "Generation Why" really don't go anywhere and also suffer from some of the Reverend's dumbest lyrics, and a lot of the music feels like the band is just going through the motions. There are still enough high points to make this worth it for the fans, but this album can't hold a candle to "Full Custom Gospel Sounds" or "Liquor in the Front".
