Album Review

Reviewed 2002-03-13
Silly synth based spoof music. Cheesy 80’s/Styx synth and fucked up keys dominate. Zappa meets Devo and The Moldy Peaches in a video game. Electronic feel overall, but other elements too. 4track recording. Sharp, nice drug themes but MANY are FATALLY FCC laced- only choose from songs listed below. Cool as shit.

1) voice intro
3) slower cheesy pop
5) brief swingy instrumental
9) nice folky dark cynical
10) brief organ
12) brief silly synth
14) slow sparse sick weird, arcade music
15) upbeat cute, still sick though, devolves into choice noise 16) brief synth
18) oh Christ, no profanities but the content is questionable-Excellent!
20) casio feel inst.
21) strange cheesy pop
22) super twisted sick
23) electrobent, instrumental
24) hilarious jesus and I play video games
25) casio c&w feel 26) Styx feel
27) undecipherable weirdness mostly, piano
28) folky lou Barlow
30) nice run down on drug
Note: track 7 is great but has one unacceptable fcc at 2:05 remaining “I’m completely fucking broke”
