A Kid's Review on 22 Jun. 2009
Format: Audio CD
I think you will need to have unusually sensitive ears (or a far better music centre than I possess) to worry more about the quality of the recording than that of the actual music. This is a fine album, with moments of great passion and energy expressed by a still youthful Southside backed by the vibrant Jukes who continue to pack a punch. Admittedly it's not up to the standards of "Hearts of Stone" and the loss of the influence of Springsteen and Van Zandt can be heard but, hey, The Jukes still makes for great listening. Go on, try it!

I used to enjoy this album quite a bit when I owned it on vinyl in the late seventies ~ good songs, nicely fleshed out with plenty of sassy brass and a good punchy recording. I sort of regretted selling it and for some years looked forward to getting it on CD. But when it arrived I was very disappointed to find that the quality of the remastering is such that I just cannot enjoy it at all ~ it sounds flat, weak and all things bad about digital sound. A generally good album sadly spoilt. It could have been done so much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Southside Johnny Breaks With Springsteen & Company, And Starts A New Phase Of His Career 16 Sept. 2008
By The Footpath Cowboy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes had given up covering R&B oldies on their previous studio album, HEARTS OF STONE. On THE JUKES, they break completely with Bruce Springsteen and Steven Van Zant, and leave the songwriting entirely to Southside and guitarist Billy Rush. Despite the absence of Springsteen and Van Zandt, the horns and guitars still sound punchy, and rather than the dreamy romanticism of the first three albums, this one focuses on a world in disorder and the struggle of the songs' characters to cope with it. In addition, the music sounds more contemporary, taking in what was going on in the music world at the time it was recorded. This isn't the first place to discover Southside Johnny, but it is a masterful album nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars buy this one! 23 Jan. 2009
By Lisa Wolfe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this cd is no less than fantastic. every song is great. the horns make it so different from other rock music and so incredibly good. i cannot believe this band never hit it really big; the talent here is huge. buy this cd. it's old now but has stood the test of time which proves it is great music. i remember last nite is my favorite song. i saw them do it at the agora ballroom in atlanta about 25 yrs ago and will never forget it. they have other good cd's but this is zzz best!

3.0 out of 5 stars Garden state R&B takes a polished turn 23 Dec. 2007
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
At the time of its original 1978 release, the Jukes fourth album was a big turning point. The band's independence from the Jersey shore sound of Springsteen and E Street had emerged on the previous LP, "Hearts of Stone," a move from Epic to Mercury provided additional distance, and the replacement of E Streeter Steve Van Zandt as producer and songwriter severed an additional tie. With the band really hitting its stride and vocalist Johnny Lyon firmly at the helm, the Jukes were poised to take off.

But they didn't. The loss of Van Zandt left the songwriting in the less capable hands of Lyon and guitarist Billy Rush, and though the band could still muster punchy horn rock and R&B, Barry Beckett's production was workmanlike but unexciting. Lyon's vocals were missing the passion of earlier album, and the words simply weren't as affecting or memorable. The album opens promisingly with the catchy riffs of "All I Want is Everything" with a terrific, stage-ready chorus hook. But the fire was quickly extinguished by the ironically un-anxious sounding "I'm So Anxious." The thank-God-it's-Friday "I Remember Last Night" is similarly lacking in passion.

Better are the slinky blues "Security" and overwrought "Wait in Vain." The album mostly lacks the sweaty Saturday night inspiration of its predecessors. Rather than capitalizing on their breakthrough, the Jukes dealt away some of their most vital elements. The results are passable, but in an effort to further escape the shadow of E Street, the Jukes lost their punch. With this album back in print after a few years absence, fans can now complete their collection, but this isn't the place to start your appreciation. [©2007 hyperbolium dot com]

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music 27 July 2010
By Griswel - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is 80s music, so don't expect the latest style. That said, the music is a fantastic mix of ballad and rock. I really appreciate Amazon making this available (I looked for it a year ago as my old copy is long gone). Try the samples, especially Vertigo, Paris and Wait In Vain.
