There is no doubt that there is a demand for all things Lil Jon right now. Need proof? This album was so highly anticipated that many retailers began selling it days ahead of its scheduled release.

There is no doubt that there is a demand for all things Lil Jon right now. Need proof? This album was so highly anticipated that many retailers began selling it days ahead of its scheduled release. Fortunately, this is one time where the product does meet its expectations. "Crunk Juice" is the aural equivalent of the alcoholic concoction it is named for—strong, infectious and having the potential to start a riot. The kinetic lead single, "What You Gon' Do" (featuring Lil Scrappy), is a prime example. At the same time, Jon, Lil Bo and Big Sam also have a few surprises up their sleeves. The trio teams with Usher and Ludacris on the grooving ballad "Lovers and Friends." They also mine go-go funk on the DJ Kool-featured "Aww Skeet Skeet" and Slayer's metal sounds on the Rick Rubin-produced "Don't F*** Wit Me." The result is a nonstop party. "Crunk Juice" also features such A-listers as R. Kelly, Snoop Dogg and Chris Rock.—RH
