As if we didn’t learn our lesson last time, again, we would like to take a moment and kindly extend our sincerest BOO to the following artists and their most recent releases.
OASIS – “DIG OUT YOUR SOUL”
Why we can’t stand them? The Gallagher brothers do it again. They get you all riled up by cranking out a single that sounds like they’ve finally come back to the ultra-cool mojo they had on “Definitely Maybe”. Then you find out the rest is the same old banal, half-assed Beatles ripoff crap we’ve become accustomed to on every album after “Be Here Now”.
QUEEN – “THE COSMOS ROCKS”
Why we can’t stand them? Two words: Freddie Mercury. For our younger readers who never had a chance to witness the glory of Freddie Mercury, just take our word for it, you don’t replace Freddie Mercury.
THE DANDY WARHOLS– “EARTH TO THE DANDY WARHOLS”
Why we can’t stand them? We have been advocating this band for a long time. Standing up to skeptics and assuring them the Warhols are misunderstood and to just wait until they find a niche. And then… this.
This big, big mess of an album. The first 3 tracks are decent, especially the experimental, drugged out vibe of “Wasp in the Lotus”. But after that, the Warhols crash and burn all over the place trying too hard to be a band they’re not.
NICKELBACK – “DARK HORSE”
Why we can’t stand them? NOW Magazine said it best: “Kroeger’s voice sounds more like a wounded goat (!!!!) than ever before, and their blatantly recycled songs touch on familiar themes like strippers, sex, prostitutes, drugs, sex, drinking and sex…”
Sex, prostitutes, drugs, drinking & sex??? Who do these guys think they’re kiddin‘? Nickelback makes Daughtry look like Nikki Sixx‘s seventh overdose. They named they’re album after a comic book publisher for crying out loud…
AKON – “FREEDOM“
Why we can’t stand them? DO WE REALLY HAVE TO GIVE YOU A REASON??? WE HATED THE DUDE ALREADY FOR GUESTING IN EVERY POP HIT ON THE RADIO. NOW HE HAS “FREEDOM”… Instead of listening to this hellish and monotonous exploration of boredom, we rather listen to shotguns going off close to our heads, while an angry Rottweiler mauls our leg.
