This week’s album revue comes straight from sophisticated mind of Jimmy Pop. Most might know him best as being the front man of Bloodhound Gang. Bloodhound Gang has had quite the reputation of pushing the envelope with their risque lyrics and stage antics. Hefty Fine is no different.
Oddly enough, critics didn’t take to Hefty Fine as well as AsinineRadio did. The album is great. Perfectly blends what makes Bloodhound Gang great. The album blends various genres together in one album and keeps a fun, energetic pace throughout. Jimmy Pop’s lyrics, as usual, are witty AF and subtly funny. There’s really nothing like it. He has a way with words that is both beautiful and disgusting.
The album has some amazing songs accompanied by both legendary lyrics and awesome instrumentation. The track Ralph Wiggum is comprised of mostly quotes from the Simpson’s character of the same name. In a time when YouTube wasn’t as vast as it is today, to find quotes made by a single minor character from a TV show shows just how dedicated Jimmy Pop was to making something great!
Most of the album deals with some raunchy stuff that is quite vulgar and not for the faint of heart. Considering some of the content it’s no wonder the album wasn’t received well by some critics (those chumps!). The album is a slight departure from what most people may think of Bloodhound Gang’s sound as it delves deeper into an electronic theme and arranges some of their songs around that sound. Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss is the best example of this.
Go check this album out. If for no other reason than to hear vulgar lyrics backed by catchy bass lines and melodic guitar riffs. Plus, the skits will make you laugh.
