Review Summary: very well written pop funk and hard rock opus magnum of father's unconventional love to his son

We have gathered here today for a great cause - to celebrate the release of an album by one beast of a human, Brooke Burgess aka Dadbod. He has composed and recorded 20 songs (and videos!) dedicated to his son. If this doesn’t melt your heart straight away - you obviously don’t have one.

It's witty and catchy, and it transmits tons of unconventional love, not something you usually feel from a rock’n’roll record. What to expect from it? An elegant display of diverse musical background resulting in no less diverse tracks. The album offers everything, from Mr Bunglish hip-hop and classic rock to touching ballads in the vein of Elton John (check out Little Guy, it's insane) and Mark Lanegan. The release is predominantly pop funk in the vein of Bruno Mars and Fun Lovin Criminals and hard rock, which is stated by the gothic americana installment Shadowland, homegrown punk anthem Superboo and mellow post-everything When.

Apart from clever lyrics and quality composition, what I am surprised with the most is the amount of attention a parent may give to his child. This review is not even about music anymore - now it’s sheer respect towards fathers' love, humor and admiration.

At times it might feel like it becomes a bit too much, as I never expect to learn that much about one kid in the process of listening to an album. Still, I have finished it in one sitting, finding myself unable to resist. And let me tell you, it counts as an achievement cause it is actually pretty long (almost an hour!).

I’d recommend giving it a listen as at very least it’s unique and therefore possesses an undeniable charm.

Raimi, your dad is great, you lil lucky dinosaur loving man.
