There's nothing like a good, solid rock album to put things back to right.

For that is what this is: An album full of diverse rock music with a big lump of metal chugged into it and slices of stoner and hardcore added.

Jerkstore have been around for so many years (first release in 1999) that they know how to write a groovy tune, and they do in abundance on 'The Road Ends'. This is not a trivial album, and compared to other Danish bands, they certainly have their own sound and offer the odd surprise here and there even it Jerkstore haven't got the complexity of Dream Theater.

But like any other matters here in life, much relies on tastes. As much as I love a lot of the song writing on 'The Road Ends', I'm not a big fan of Keld Rud's voice. He's a wee bit too strained in places, and that doesn't suit the music methinks. But, as I said, that might just me. The album definitely is worth a listen for fans of rock with a metal edge - try for example Amount to Nothing and Spread My Ashes, my two favourite tracks of the disc.
