Review Summary: A musical journey into the most tragic, and yet most hopeful, of places...

6 of 7 thought this review was well written

...the vagina. No, I'm not kidding. That's what The Misunderstood reminds me of. It is funny sometimes, alluring others, and occasionally disgusting. Teams of scientists could work for years and still not fully understand it. The Misunderstood is a perplexing listen, just like the vagina is a perplexing organ, mostly due to the bizarre mix of genres and moods. Burping, spoken word, avant-garde metal freakouts, orgasms, opera, slurping, hip-hop samples... need I go on? Probably not, but I will anyway.

Let's look at some of the highlights from the album. "Anything in Mind" has one of the loudest and worst guitar solos I have ever heard, and I can only hope that it is a parody. "NO! Don't Type That!" is a bizarre acapella harmonized operatic vocal piece that sounds like five ghosts having simultaneous orgasms. Speaking of orgasms, the track immediately after it, "You Have a Moustache and You're a Woman," is the sound of someone beating off, cumming... and that's it. Lastly, closer "Niggardly Nasah" is almost entirely silent for its nearly six-minute runtime, until the vocalist burps and asks 'What do YOU think?' in the track's closing seconds.

There are a couple of legitimately decent moments on here, though. "Go to the Park" has some impressive Buckethead-style shredding, and the title track is one of the most bizarrely entertaining songs I have ever heard, being seven-plus minutes long and cycling through genre after genre. The total randomness of this track, and indeed the whole album, will have you on the floor laughing... I just hope that was its intent.

The other review for this doesn't help...The fact that P Diddy and a pedophile from Australia would be put on the same cover of an album called 'The Misunderstood' just makes me more worried about the artists who made this 'thing'

These songs of ridiculously charged emotion and passion blended into epic beauty and terrible ugliness to make the perfect amalgamation of the human experience known as life. This. is. The. Misunderstood.

this record is roughly as fun as being stuck in limbo in a perpetual state of being savagely consumed by rabid piranhas whilst watching that rape scene from Gaspar NoƩ's Irreversible with ICPs whole discography repeadedly chugging away in the background.

it's pedestrian throughout, like mainlining barbiturates.
