Review Summary: Hey, at least it's still better than brokeNCYDE...

3 of 4 thought this review was well written

Okay, before I get into this review I feel i should warn potential listeners of two things:
1. DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING ON THIS ALBUM SERIOUSLY. The life you save could be your own.
2. It is recommended you do not listen to the whole album in one sitting, lest you end up with all 13 songs repeating in your head AT THE SAME DAMN TIME (speaking from experience).

Now, many of you are probably surprised and maybe even disturbed by the rating I gave, but I'll have you know I'm giving most of the credit here not to Kreayshawn herself, but to to the exterior forces that helped make this album such an interesting listen - from the vocal stylings of Kid Cudi and 2 Chainz, to the musical talents of Diplo and Boys Noize. It's the variety of artists behind the music portion that ultimately make the album fun to listen to, if nothing else. The playlist is mostly upbeat and energetic, with the exception of the last track, "Luv Haus," but we'll get to that in a minute.

All ass-kissing aside, the real secret ingredient in this album that makes it listenable, is not in the way the album covers many different styles of rap, hip-hop and pop music, nor is it in the, ahem, *outstanding* lyrics, which consist of Kreay comparing modern food slang words for money with "breakfast", inappropriately referencing dead celebrities, repeatedly bragging about her fat stacks of money (which mostly did NOT come from her music or video-directing skills, if you know what I mean), and confusing the hell out of everyone about her sexuality between the tracks "Summertime," "Left Ey3" and "Twerkin!!!" The secret that makes it successful as an experimental pop album is in the constant experimentation and random sound/vocal effects, which have recently been discovered by such acts as KE$HA, LMFAO, and Your Favorite Martian, to distract their fans (most of them being attention-deficit pre-teens) from the sub-par lyrical skills and the fact that despite being EXTREMELY catchy, none of the sh*t they sing about is real, or even overly funny or praiseworthy.

The one track that really impressed me, however, was "Luv Haus." In this track, Kreay ditches the lame white-girl street lingo, the cheesy accent, and the "ghetto b*tch" facade, and decides to put her voice to good use and sing lyrics that actually sort of make sense. It is unknown at this point who produced the music for the track, but it too was significantly different from the rest of the track. I do find myself wondering whether it actually belongs on the album, however, as most artists don't go through their "soft and mature" phase until their fourth or fifth album, after they've passed the peak of their career.

My expectations for this album were much lower than the final result I received. I would not at all put this album anywhere close to any Aphex Twin, Eminem or KISS albums; if I did, this album would get a 1 by default. But being that it's mostly a pop album, I'm going to rate it as a pop album; one that is slightly less aggravating than most pop albums today.

If this is the best summary you have for this, then this is obviously pathetic.
