iTunes Review

Produced by Ministry’s Al Jourgensen, Liquor in Front nurtured the two extremes of Reverend Horton Heat’s style. “I Can’t Surf,” “Yeah, Right,” and “Jezebel” were the fiercest rock songs the trio had ever recorded, blistering with the noise that had made Ministry famous. At the same time, “Liquor, Beer & Wine” and the Cuban-tinged “In Your Wildest Dreams” are as rich and mellow as vintage recordings by Ray Price. Still, the band (led by Jim "Reverend Horton Heat" Heath himself) are best embodied by “Big Sky,” “Five-O Ford,” and “Cruisin’ for a Bruisin’”: three hyperactive themes for dystopian hot-rod races.

Customer Reviews

Why do people have ta be negative?

Full Custom is better, but come on. . . This thing smokes. Baddest of the Bad, One Time for Me and the more laid back sounds of In Your Wildest Dreams and Liquor, Beer and Wine. Very good stuff.

Their Best

Ten years ago the first four songs on this album made me go out, buy a Gretsch, and dedicate my precious adolescence to learning Rockabilly guitar and spreading the Reverend's good word. I will admit that when I imported this CD onto my computer (sorry iTunes store, you weren't around) I only kept tracks 1-4, 7,8 and 11, but those songs have withstood every phase of my musical development. I wouldn't ask them to go back and try to recreate what they did with their first three albums, I'm just real greatful they did it in the first place.


This awesome CD has some of the Reverend's greatest tunes. "Baddest of the Bad" and "Big Sky" get the album off to a truly rockin' start, while songs like "Jezebel" and "In Your Wildest Dreams" show the band's versatility. "I Can't Surf" and "Yeah, Right" take an industrial turn that work nicely with Jimbo's virtuosic bass and the Rev's god-sent leads. Check out this wonderful, varied and unique CD!

The Reverend Horton Heat is perhaps the most popular psychobilly artist of all time, his recognition only rivaled by the esteem generated by the genre's founders, the Cramps. The Reverend (as both the three-man band and its guitar-playing frontman were known) built a strong cult following during the '90s through constant touring, manic showmanship, and a twisted sense of humor. The latter was nothing new in the world of psychobilly, of course, and Heat's music certainly kept the trashy aesthetic...
