  1. Although it peters out in its last 10 minutes, Lucky 7 is a workmanlike and thrilling if unadventurous addition to Heat's fiery catalog, and provides him with more fuel for his explosive gigs.
  2. The good stuff aside, if hard whiskey, hard women and aboveground pools aren't your thing-- and I would imagine not-- it's tough to recommend Lucky 7.
  3. The problem is that the band seems to have switched onto autopilot when writing these songs.

    Humour takes too firm a hold as the band play on, creating the probably unfair feeling that this is just a light tribute to old, inspired sounds. [May 2002, p.108]

    I love almost all of this CD, however, as wonderful a bass player as he is I could live without the last track "You've got a Friend in Jimbo".
