  1. Wilson delivers a knockout as she serves up enough of the rowdy tunes to keep the jukebox pumping most of the night — most powered by a lively mix of ringing guitars, spunky fiddles and powerful backbeat. [25 Sep 2005]
  2. Sticks to the debut's ballads-plus-bar-anthems blueprint while revealing a broader range. [30 Sep 2005, p.91]
  3. Beyond the bombast, Wilson has personality and soul to burn, and her impact on country music is going to be felt for many albums to come, starting here. [1 Oct 2005]
  4. At this point, Wilson looks like the most important new artist to hit country music since the Dixie Chicks.
  5. While Wilson's always refreshingly brash as a vocalist, the arrangements are only satisfactory.
  6. 80
    It's fed-up and proud at the same time, a kind of Desperate Housewives meets Trailer Fabulous. [Oct 2005, p.144]
  7. She's not as aggressive and unguarded as she was on her debut. Yet even toned down, her persona has the spunk that country needs.
  8. Unfortunately, All Jacked Up is everything you might expect from a hurried follow-up to a record setting debut. Shunning ambition, it aims for consolidation.
  9. Yeah, Jacked contains a few shadowy rewrites of Here for the Party tunes, but the players this time are more in sync with the star--the music is louder, beerier.
  10. 58
    What passed for refreshing last year is merely rote here. [Dec 2005, p.105]
  11. A mediocre follow-up with nothing as great as "Redneck Woman" or "Here for the Party."
  12. Half the album [is] mired in embarrassing heartland cliches. [Feb/Mar 2006, p.96]
  13. What All Jacked Up ultimately confirms... is that Wilson is a one-trick pony whose trick will only impress those with exceedingly low expectations.

    I loved "Here for the Party" despite 8 songs, but this was pretty much the same all through. I like #1 and #12. The rest mostly sound funny I loved "Here for the Party" despite 8 songs, but this was pretty much the same all through. I like #1 and #12. The rest mostly sound funny or the same. And "All Jacked Up" sounds like "Redneck Woman" at parts, but it's still good. Full Review »

    This album is by far worse than her first one and should have an R rating on it.
