I don't know why Jesse James Dupree decided to record this solo effort, "Foot Fetish," but I can tell you up front that it's not much different than the music you'd expect to hear on an album from his band, Jackyl. And that's a good thing.

Solid chunks of Southern Rock, AC/DC tinged guitars, lyrics that get a little bawdy now and then and, of course, Jesse's trademark yowl. The only thing missing is the chainsaw.

"Foot Fetish" isn't exactly like a Jackyl album. It seems a bit more personal, lyrically and musically, and the songs often aren't as bombastic as they would be with Jackyl. Still, any Jackyl fan is practically guaranteed to like this CD, as are fans of Southern Rock like Molly Hatchet and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
