I am among the minority that thinks Alive and Amplified was their best record. So, if we approach this as Sammy James Jr. first solo album (only one original member appears on this record while James wrote the entire record himself), I think this effort will fair better with the old school crowd. Have Mercy opens with "99%", starting out with a riff borrowed straight from Angus Young's playbook and joined with a back-up arrangement that was probably stolen from the black book of previous producer The Matrix. But what is borrowed and/or stolen does not hurt this record one bit. "Good Ol' Alcohol" plays like an R-rated basement classic that your least responsible uncle introduced you to back when you were knee-high while "Adam & Eve" is that lost soft rock classic that could become a guilty pleasure of both you and your parents. But don't call up Dad yet. Get yourself a few listens on your own or with your best pal before you share this gem of a rock album with pops.

Surprisingly good.

This album surpised me. I thought I was done with these guys, but this record has a bit of the rock & roll/r & b swagger that's missing from 99% of indie rock these days. Tracks 1-10 are the original album, of which you don't really need track 8 (it's goofy and it gets old). Tracks 11-14 are bonus tracks, of which you only really need 13 and 14 (11 and 12 are second-rate). That leaves you with a solid 11 song record that, while not a return to their raucous glory days, is a fun and worthwhile listen.

An awesome comback!

We featured them on Berkeley Place The Indie Blog--it's a great comeback album from a fantastic studio band.
