Last Man Standing (2006)

EW's GRADE
B-

Details Release Date: Sep 26, 2006; Lead Performance: Jerry Lee Lewis; Genre: Rock

The Killer's first new studio CD in more than a decade finds him in strong form, his iconic voice still recognizable and ivory-tinkling fingers still nimble, as he barrels through songs both old (''What's Made Milwaukee Famous'') and newish (''Pink Cadillac''). But too often, Jerry Lee Lewis cedes the spotlight to A-list guests like Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger, and Bruce Springsteen, who do precious little with it on Last Man Standing. Moreover, a cover of the 17-year-old-girl ode ''I Saw Her Standing There'' seems unwise given both our hero's advanced years and his infamous marriage to his 13-year-old second cousin.
