Album Review

Jimmie's Chicken Shack is the type of name one would expect from either a country act or Southern-fried country-rockers, but Pushing the Salmanilla Envelope hardly falls into either of those categories. Rather, this promising debut album shows Chicken Shack to be hard-driving alternative rockers whose music is as intense as it is melodic.

Pushing the Salmanilla Envelope makes you hope that future Chicken Shack releases will be this exciting.
