Album Review
Alex Dunn
Reviewed 2005-01-12
Quasi-novelty album by local accordion-based group. Goofy lyrics and a variety of song genres. If Weird Al wrote original songs, and was less manic, it might sound like this. Album ends with an a-typical, serious song that is the best of the lot. Recommend 11, 6. FCC: 3.

1) 136 bpm. Cheerful 80s pop about a lawnball.
2) 75/150 bpm. Ska-ish, male vocals, female backup, accordion, guitar, synth.
3) FCC 60/120 bpm. Polka about mountain climbing, and the lame people who do it. Dumbass, damn.
4) 100 bpm. Mockingly metal, w/ chords ground out on accordion.
5) 90 bpm. New Orleans style jazz ballad, with clarinet, trumpet, fatalistic lyrics.
6) 85 bpm. Rocksteady about a defunct relationship.
7) 110 bpm. Smoov-pop, featuring wretched female rapping.
8) Purposefully cheesy metal medley.
9) 124 bpm. Male vocals, straight ahead pop. About a mooching friend.
10) 120 bpm. Countryish, about eating at Mr. Chau’s and feeling lonely.
11) 44 bpm. Gently waltzing country ballad with touching lyrics about being old.
