Aunt Beaph - 2000AB
I was pretty surprised this CD wasn't horrific.
In fact, it was pretty okay.
Same basic principle as The Great Milenko by the
Insane Clown Posse -- lots of overblown ostensibly angry
noises both vocal and instrumental and songs that try
really hard to be disturbing or shocking. For the
most part, they do not quite get there.
Still in all, the music is decent. Lots of abrupt
starts and stops and shifts in musical style.
Sometimes it works well, sometimes it's just annoying,
but it works well more often than it is annoying. The
vocals are well meaning -- you can always tell what
image they are trying to convey and sometimes it even
Gopher Guts is a funny song, if it was meant to
be self-parody. Frat Boy Junkie falls into the same
problems as 90% of anti-frat boy songs, because it
turns out sounding more bitter than mocking. Nothing
on the album really stands out, but nothing especially
If the album were a girl, it'd be the girl who
starts getting really sexy after about 5 beers and who
you aren't exactly ashamed to admit to knowing the
next day and might tumble again, next time you have 5
beers and she's handy.
