Just finished it. Probably his weakest effort so far, or maybe just least organized. It felt like there wasn't much of a clear story or vision for most of these tracks.

Highlights were Psycho Killer/Super Freak and Everybody Wants to Rule the Ribs. I would have liked to see him go full-on original with that Come On Get Happy beat because what he was putting under the main song was slapping pretty hard.

I don't think it slaps as much as Mouth Sounds but he tries some more wildly weird things here, and I can't fault him for that, even if it means the beat is sometimes wonky.

I'm laughing pretty hard

Nothing quite reaches Bustin' or Wow Wow levels but overall it was pretty nice except for the assassination of Feel Good Inc. by Pee Wee Herman.

I also liked that he made Fireflies listenable

I think songs like Bustin are funny but I'm WAY into the remix/mashup genre in general - I have downloaded like 40 hours of Radio 1 Essential mixes and poo poo like Girl Talk, and I think some of these songs are really cool. Not any really funny or mindblowing ones yet, but Shot A Man In Reno was REALLY good as a song

The track progression is about the dreaming process; it starts off with surface level references (Spongebob, Baby Back Ribs), becomes increasingly nightmarish, takes a turn for the bizarre and clowny, then you wake up and are faced with the overwhelming waking world.

Going to be the dissenting voice here and say that this is my favorite album yet. I want to listen to like every other track in this one. It helps that he used a ton of songs I like. You could say it's not as funny as the previous ones, but in return there are a lot of songs that are just straight-up fantastic musically, and I'll take that tradeoff any day.

Yeah this is the one that most resembles music. I like a lot of his songs but wouldn't like, download an MP3 of Bustin so I could listen to it in the car or anything, but these come much closer. And yeah, same here, I really like a lot of the base songs. I JUST hit Everlong, a great song, and Everybody Wants to Rule the World was a really good one too

"I find my life is a lot easier the lower I keep my expectations."
-Bill Watterson


I do like it a whole lot, I laughed the whole way through.

If I have to be critical, there's two things for me that kinda stick out.

One is that a lot of the tracks are just a mix of two songs, A/B, where a lot of my favorite NeilC mixes are things like Who or Annoyed Grunt where there's a dozen different sources being blended together.
Spice Waluigi was funny but felt like it could have been taken further.

The second is that there felt like a lot of classical or otherwise old or public domain songs, each of which is pretty cool but together kinda took something out of the energy of the album.

Say it aint so vs Hall of the mountain King
Britney vs Beethoven
Feel Good vs Pee-Wee Blue Ball machine
White Stripes vs Powerhouse (that assembly line song from Looney Toones)

But I did enjoy these, they're well done. But like I said earlier, some of this stuff just felt less like rocking tunes and more experiments in mashups which is cool too

I liked it a lot and I am so disappointed I didn't know I needed an album that was just mixes of modern songs over classical music now.

Cannibals, though. That song was just a mood that describes a sci-fi genre I'm not familiar with that I want to work in.

OBSERVE



I think that the individual tracks are all towards the lower end of Neil's output

But the theming and the overall concept for the album is fantastic

Bustin is kind of a lead in for the album, isn't it?


e: did Moods have all of the super deep cut easter eggs that Silence did?

Just a Baby is a masterpiece; Folsom Prison Blues overlaid with Hoobastank??? Hell yeah

Ribs is incredible, Nightmovin' is incredible. Ain't is surprisingly good too. Surprised myself by how much I went back and listened to the tracks.

Moods really didn't have a lot of substance either, even though Bustin and Wow Wow are incredible. A lot of the tracks were goofy and he really went all in with Barenaked Ladies like what, three times? Still loved it.

There seems to be a few, there's a least a quiet "wake up!" from Chop Suey by System of a Down after one of the songs. There's been Easter eggs in every album, even the first one was dated to have been released on the day the album/single for All Star came out. They've just been getting more and more obscure

I'll have to give it a few more listens after downloading the individual tracks, as I've just finished listening to the album straight from the web browser on the website.

"I find my life is a lot easier the lower I keep my expectations."
-Bill Watterson


When I was just a baby
My momma told me son
Always be a baby
Don't ever be a gun

But I shot a man in Reno
Just to watch him die
I hang my head and cry

When I was just a baby
When I was just a boy
I shot a man in Reno
I was just a baby boy

I hear the train a comin'
I hear that railroad train
Its probably a good train
My momma was a train

But I'm stuck in baby prison,
I know I can't be free

When I was just a baby
When I was just a train
I shot a traaaaaaaaaain

I'm probably drinking coffee
Just a baby drinking coffee
Always drinking coffee and smoking big cigars

Well if they freed me from this prison
Well if I was a car
I bet I'd be a good car
And that's what tortures me

I feel like he gets one of those weird, haunting, but also funny mashups once per album. Moods had T.I.M.E. Silence had Love Psych. Sounds had Tears in Chocolate Rain.

The Backstreet Boys sample is pretty double clever. Obviously they're relevant to the Smash Mouth reference because they're mentioned in the song, but the fact that the backstreet boys have a song where the lyrics are "Cover me with dreams, love me mouth to mouth" is so hilariously fitting for the Mouth series and this one being about Dreams.
