Serengeti gives new meaning to the term "one-man band" with Dennehy (Lights, Camera, Action!). In it, Serengeti conjures up a world of strange people living out strange lives, a world rife with woman problems, booze, and references to Chicago sports teams. He doesn’t just voice each character so much as step into the lives he has created, acquiring their personas with the precision of a Hannibal Lecter criminal profile. Previously released on Bonafyde Recordings, the new incarnation of the album offers a truer representation of Serengeti’s original artistic vision.

As with any re-release, the fan has to wonder whether it is worth spilling out hard-earned cash on a product that they basically already own. Fear not, Serengeti fans, as the new Dennehy contains seven previously unreleased tracks. Songs appearing on the original version have been remixed and remastered, and are all the better for it. Comparing the old to the new side by side, one really sees just how much work went into the second iteration of this album. "Love You But" remains one of the most powerful tracks, as Serengeti ponders, "I love you but what does that shit really mean?"

The final verdict: A much-improved version of an already powerful album. B+ | Josh Vise
