(ATO)

The Mule is back! On this, the band’s first release since finding permanent replacements for the late Allen Woody (it takes two to fill the Wood man’s shoes) - Andy Hess on bass and Danny Louis on keys join Matt Abts and the always surprising singer- songwriter- guitarist Warren Haynes.

The album kicks off with a rocking “Bad Man Walking,” back to back with a bluesy “About To Rage.” Next is the psychedelic-electric mayhem that starts off “Perfect Shelter,” another good one that finds Warren putting the old wah-wah pedal to good use.

“Little Toy Brain” is all about drugs and rock-n-roll and the inevitable consequences that stem from that lethal mixture. Perhaps the best track on Deja Voodoo is “Slackjaw Jezebel,” a guitar-driven rocker (imagine that) painted in the hues of Warren’s lyrical imagery. “Wine and Blood” is a haunting look inside the mind of a woman named Desiree, and “Lola Leave Your Light On” is another choice track, a rocker about a man who is feeling the urge, if you get my drift. “Silent Scream” is a moody, almost Pink Floyd vibe, and “No Celebration” seems to continue that feeling on through into the first verse anyway before receiving a Mule kick on the refrain.

It is totally unfair to compare this Mule to the Mule of Woody’s day, which I did for the first week I had this CD. I for one, will now officially let Woody rest. He deserves it. we’ll never forget him, especially with Warren and company keeping us in good new Mule music.
