Ray Wylie Hubbard... YOUR BAND "IS" "IS" "IS" HOTTER THAN A ROCKET !!!!! I LOVE THIS CD. I'm Crazy over Ray!!! I'm only a bit younger than Ray Wylie Hubbard, and just discovered him ... much to my delight. Both GROWL & SNAKE FARM have lyrics that make you "think", and a beat that is "a hint" behind in step and "hooks you" from the first second you hear it,as well as a gritty tone with unusual spacing of words, almost a "run on" sentence followed by one that is short clipped . All together this makes for a unique sound that is difficult to put in any category. Yes, blues, rock, and country folk, but more; something no one can match to the genius of RWH. I play these two CD's in my truck every day to and from work. I can't hear them enough, as they never get old. I've bought two other CD's of RWH's but they just don't have the same gritty sound and lyrics as SNAKEFARM And GROWL. They are too mellow and smooth to grab you. Ray...keep the sound you have in SNAKEFARM & GROWL coming, you bring so much happiness to our lives through your music and gifted wit. I hope to see you at a gig someday. Sylvia in Azle, Texas

Hey out there in Texas. I miss home but I still have it with me whenever I listen to this album. Ray is AWESOME. I'm out here in the navy out west in San Diego but would rather be home in Texas. And like I said Ray brings home to me whereever I am at.

First, I have been a RWH fan for a long time and always will be. He is one of the better songwriters out there, which is why it literally breaks my heart to have to admit this. "Growl" gets three stars instead of two merely for the fact that RWH is stretching himself a bit by introducing a sort of delta bluesy type sound in his music. However, the compliments end there. The songwriting is the weakest it has been in the last decade. Almost every line on the record became predictable after the first two songs. Then I realized that nearly every song sounded exactly the same. Same instrumentation, same style and almost the same tempos. I don't know if that was Gurf Morlix's (the record's producer) fault, but he has produced some fairly good records in the past, and this is not up to standard. The final blow came with the last song. I nearly wrecked my car when I heard it. "Screw You, We're From Texas"....I am not sure how to take this song. I first thought it was some kind of joke and waited eagerly for the punch line. But the joke was on me. It finally dawned on me that this was some sort of ham-handed attempt to pander to the "Pat-Charlie-Cory" crowd. His mention of the 13th Floor Elevators (for those who aren't familiar, they were a very original and influential psychedelic band from the 60's Austin music scene) and Stevie Ray Vaughn do not even come close to salvaging this song. I am from Texas and I love this state as much if not more than anyone else, but by-God, why did you put this song out Ray? Maybe this album was rushed during recording, maybe Ray really had nothing to say with his music this time around, but the lack of depth and effort in exploring his new "bluesy-sound" really showed.

Checked out Ray at The Qld Quarter last weekend. The man just gets better and better. If the CD is anything like the live stuff I witnessed, it will be his best to date....I give him all the A's and All the Stars..... Ray Wylie Hubbard is a one and only.
