No need to over analyse this one. John Lyon said he was feeling a little down and needed to do something to lift his spirits. It sounds like he locked himself away with Jukes keyboards stalwart Jeff Kazee and together they came up with 'Pills and Ammo'. Nothing too fancy, just an album of tunes that Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes can do better than probably any other similar band on the planet. From the opening guitar chords of 'Harder Than It Looks' and about the time when the horns kick in for the first time, you know you are in for a great ride. 'Cross That Line', 'Heartbreak City', 'One More Night To Rock' and 'Keep on Moving' will have you stomping your feet or drumming the steering wheel, while the more soulfull 'Lead Me On', 'A Place Where I Belong' and the gentle closer 'Thank You' remind you that Southside can soothe just as much as he can rock. But mostly this is a 'turn it up loud' affair and let yourself go with it. Not quite as good as 'Hearts of Stone' or 'Better Days', but definitely in the ball park. Its probably impossible to capture the real pleasure of this band live on a studio album but 'Pills and Ammo' is a joy nonethless. My only gripe? At 12 tracks, its maybe two songs short of the full ticket. But that's why SJ and The Asbury Jukes are so enduring because they leave us wanting more.

Its a bit of a coincidence that both Los Lobos and Southside Johnny have come up with their best work in ages.

This is just one long blast of joy. Forget your Blues Brothers or your Commitments or any number of plastic copies, this is the real deal. The original R & B/Blues/Soul mash up band that's had people dancing on the tables for decades. If anything Johnny's voice has improved with age.

If your short of cash and can't choose between Los Lobos or this, then for my money the Jukes win by a landslide.

Another great album from Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. I recently saw the band live again) and they played most of the new album. The album is a little bit more rock orientated than most of the bands output, plenty of guitar but still featuring the brass section. Mr. Lyons voice just gets better and better with age and the enthusiasm comes through even on this studio album. I had to play the album several times but am well into it now. I won't describe the tracks one by one, suffice to say that the album is WELL worth buying as the music is very fresh with the usual SSJ "feel good" element.

Also watch out for Johnnys support band on the recent tour, The Billy Walton Band, excellent, check him out on utube. Billy also played with the Jukes on the tour but Bobby Bandiera played on the album. Enjoy.

Great band, but there best tunes and albums are well behind them. I thought that this album might showcase something new (er) or at least a reworking of some classics. But no. One or two good tracks, but a lot of dross, including one execrable rock and roll track. Sad.
