An excellent rock album by some true greats. As an Aussie, I reckon it's great to see one of our greatest and wildest rock legends ever, Billy Thorpe, performing with other legends like Mick Fleetwood, Kenny Gradney and the Bramletts.

When I listened this album on "Muzica Magica", a radio broadcast in Cluj, Romania, I was conquered by the sound. Really great. What voices, guitars drums and keyboards. . It's a C.D. hard to find on the music market. Why ?

This album rocks as well as the band ROCKS!!! What a line-up, what a album. Shakin' The Cage is a well written and produced album to say the least. It is now 2004 and I am still turning this album on to many of my friends. The first song I turn them onto is Night Life. The groove of the bass and the tone of the guitars along with Bekka's voice are enough to sell anyone who knows great music. Than with Mick playing with the deepest pockets, along with the smooth B3 sound of the keyboard just makes this song one that gets to your soul. My next favorite is a tie between Shakin' The Cage and Voodoo. What more can be said. The whole album is a master piece of a band that still should be out there rockin'! Mick, Billy, Bekka, Greg,Tom and Brett, if you happen to read this please get back into the studio, or do a tour. And if you do , please come to the little city of Toledo, OH. You have more fans than you know about. Again this formula works, and works well. So don't fix it if it ain't broke.

this cd is my favorite when riding with a date with the t-tops off . my date always ask who we are listening to and say they love it. The match up of musicians on this cd is pure karma at its best. the last match up i liked was the new barbarians from years ago.

Review written by John Fitzgerald from Peabody, MA USA, September 4th, 2004
The bombastic sound on this Zoo outing was surprising to many and ultimately, disappointing. I think I was more surprised that Mick opted for a heavy blues rock sound. A sound which was apparently considered more 'Savoy Brown territory', something he and the other Mac members didn't want to do in the Dave Walker days of the Mac so looking back now, we are to assume that this is now considered acceptable and with the addition of Billy Thorpe to the Zoo one can easily see how Mick was influence by Australian rock at the time as he was spending a great deal of time there then. Knowing now that this is what you're going to get with this record, one can now appreciate the songs for what they are and for this genre this is very good. "Reach out" & the Billy Burnette co-penned title track hits you right away, "Takin' it out to the people" &"Breakin' up" are fiery rockers. Lead guitarist Gregg Wright welds a mean axe throughout the proceedings. Bekka's lead vocals are wonderful. Her powerful chords fit this musical style perfectly and we get a musical glimpse of the Mick we all know on "Voodoo" and particularly "In your hands". The pace is slowed a bit by a couple of lighter rockers "How does it feel" & "The night and you" which can really grow on you given half the chance. Of course, "giving it a chance" applies to the whole record. Now we know that the savages from the old zoo have been let loose and new ones have arrived with a more rambunctious musical appetite, we can enjoy it now in case we didn't the first time around. And for me, it works.
