Final Thoughts:

It’s a delicate balance making a great garage rock album, you don’t want it to be so melodic that it’s easily accessible to the posers, but you can’t make it so distorted that it’s next to impossible to listen to. Unfortunately Not Fucked Enough missed the mark for me, it didn’t live up to the standard that i expect of Jay Reatard. The whole thing is distorted to hell, the lyrics are barely audible and overly aggressive, it’s a trip that I didn’t feel like I was invited on. Jay Reatard is an incredible artist, his group The Reatards may be a write off, we’ll see if I like any of their other work.
