Review Summary: And on the eighth day, God made his greatest creation, Günther.
Every so often we are blessed with the presence of a truly bad artists: Soulja Boy, Doomthrone, and Limp Bizkit. Günther would seem the same way based off of the cover alone. Well he is pretty bad, but he's so bad that it's good in a way too. From his porntastic mustache, to his Rick Astley vocal power, and his sexy, soothing manliness, Günther surprisingly proves he is a force to be reckoned with in the europop genre. Born Mats Söderlund, Günther went and decided to retire from the modeling business and become a super sexy musician. In 2004, he released his debut album entitled Pleasureman
"oh, you touch my tralala,
mmm... my ding ding dong."
That's what this album starts out with in the "Ding Dong Song." After reading the lyrics, it's quite obvious what this song is truly about. What makes this from being hysterically bad though is that this is quite possibly one of the catchiest songs ever recorded. I guarantee that this will get stuck in your head after repeated listens.
The rest of the record is like this too. Günther proclaims "I'm so sexy (mhm) and you love it." and "I feel like a king when I swing my thing" in "Goldiggers." And honestly, who's going to argue with this logic? If a man this masculine and sexy wants to sing about his sexiness, well by god let him do it. This song also beats the crap out of Kayne West's "Golddigger"
Every song on here is obviously about sex, but with a spice of europop thrown into the equation. Great titles like "Touch Me" and "Ding Ding Dong" make up the better of the songs on here. Speaking of "Touch Me", it's the best song that graces this piece of musical epicness. Tag-Teaming with someone named Samantha Fox, Günther and Samantha are apparently horny for each other and want to touch each other repeatedly. What makes this so addictive though is the synthesizers. The main melody is technotastic. I seriously want to learn how to play this on my keyboard.
proves to be a classic in the entire genre of music itself. From the addicting synth lines in "Touch Me", "Pleasureman" (which possibly has the catchiest chorus and post-chorus, in terms of music, ever), and "Ding Dong Song", Günther gives techno an proud moment. Honestly though, any review of this classic can not give it enough credit. Aside from being ridiculously absurd in every aspect possible, this somehow becomes one of the greatest things in history. Günther explains himself the best though, and I'll end with that.
