Ted Nugent - Craveman

Label: Spitfire Records
Format: CD
Released: 2002
Reviewed By: Rich Catino
Guns + hunting + guitars + chicks + rock n roll = Ted Nugent. Ted has always carried the flag for loud and rude hard rock, and age has not changed a bit of that. Luckily, he has not softened like some of his peers (Aerosmith).
"Klstrphnky"…(what does that mean???) the lead off track and "Crave" get the album moving. Topically, he covers the usual standards of patriotism, sex, women, and the call of the wild. I think Ted relates more to the guys lyrically, than the girls, and that's all good. It is important to have an artist who is strong in his beliefs and cares for our country. "Rawdogs and Warhogs" and "Change My Sex" contain some great riffs, leads and solid rhythm parts while “Pussywhipped” is Ted doing his best with tongue and cheek lyrics and a catchy chorus. As Ted gets older it doesn’t appear to be affecting his spirit at all. He is still the loin cloth wearing, well not anymore, wildman with a guitar in one hand and a bow and arrow in the other. If he was in politics I think he would do well. At least this country would be speaking English.

I look forward to the next Damn Yankess CD if there will be one?
