Favourite Song on Album:
Listen to This Album When You’re:
I don’t know, high I guess.
Thoughts on Album Cover:
It’s pretty ugly, but I get that it’s supposed to be a Tim and Eric reference.
Want to Own on Vinyl?:
Sure it’d be funny to own on vinyl.
What kind of psychedelic nightmare trip did I enter when I found this mish mash of an album? Seriously, Rock Plaza Central+Steve Brule+Justin Timberlake Covers=wtf? The whole album is hard to take seriously, I don’t think it is meant to be. It’s a lot of fun though, and certain songs even have the strength to strike a sad chord (I Wrant You), and the seriousness of the instrumentals are still there. I’m not in on the joke though, and for that it’s hard to understand what really is going on on Cover Me In Brule, but regardless we’re still looking at some solid tunes in a weirdly packed concept album.
