1 of 2 thought this review was well written

Party hard! Party hard! Party hard! Come on man, let’s party hard!

If you have an attitude other then this when listening to any Andrew W.K. album, then just don’t listen really. Andrew W.K. is the party hardiest rocker to grace the Earth. Classically trained in the piano (that’s right ladies!), Mr. W.K.’s first record, “I Get Wet", is a fun, upbeat time. The metal riffs the guitar produce oddly work well with both the piano and Andrew W.K.’s rough voice. “Party Hard" is arguably the musicians most known song and with good reason. The riffs and piano bounce off each other and Andrew talks about working all day and at night is when the party starts. That’s all there is to Andrew W.K.’s music yet it’s still a great listen each and every time. The use of backup vocals are taken advantage of a lot throughout “I Get Wet". “Girls Own Love" is essentially half Andrew singing and half chanting backup vocals. The anthemic “Ready To Die" makes me want to dance like a silly mother f*cker despite the slightly morbid name. The review said before that Andrew’s voice was rough and it truly is. It’s as if W.K. actually sucked while smoking the MJ out of a foil bong. Oddly enough though, he is extremely catchy and doesn’t get old. “Party ‘Til You Puke" shows that the best as he is absolutely relentless with the vocals. Yes, “I Get Wet" is repetitive. Yes, the music is simple. Yes, this is still great no matter what and awesome stuff to throw a party to if you don’t like the bangin’ techno beats of a club.

Pros:
+PARTY! PARTY! PARTY!
+Andrew W.K. has some awesomely catchy and rough vocals
+The way the piano and guitar riffs intertwine with each other is brilliant

Cons:
-Repetitive
-Simple

Standout Tracks:
+“Party Hard"
+“Party ‘Til You Puke"
+“I Love NYC"
+“I Get Wet"

Hmmm, I know reviews can be short nowadays, but this just seems like it...uh..wants to be longer. Great job anyway. I have trouble comprehending this as anything decent, but I guess I should probably try it out.
Anyone else miss his old tv show?

Loved the short review. but I cant see how I Love NYC is a stand out track... Where's the love for Ready To Die.

EDIT::: Holy fucking shit, when the hell did my name change from the_sludge04 to The Sludge, I'm so freaking psyced. (sry if its spamming)This Message Edited On 06.24.06
