Fat Worm of Error - Pregnant Babies Pregnant With Pregnant Babies
Spin after spin, I can't shake the feeling that Fat Worm of Error is just that. Yep, I can't stop thinking Pregnant Babies Pregnant with Pregnant Babies is one bloated, winding, and premature mistake. Frankly put, this album (and trust me, I'm trying to be a decent human being here) VERY difficult to enjoy. OK, scratch all that! This album basically saps you of your time, energy, and most importantly, your patience. There's no beating around the bush with this one; this crap reeks pretty strongly. It has the most grating, pointlessly random, and atrocious percussion I've ever had the misfortune of hearing. It sounds like a bunch of annoying little tykes banging pots and pans on three burning cats.
Though the press release is quick to laud all the instruments featured here, the end results are largely futile. Take a weird guitar 'riff' on "Special Bonus Thing (Reprise)" for example. It lasts for all of ten seconds and doesn't go anywhere besides nowhere. The same goes down for a plethora of misused instruments as varied as synths, horns, slap-bass, and God knows what else. To top this s*** sandwhich off, the vocals are the most childish, squeaky, helium-addled nonsense that have ever been put to tape. The irritating claptrap is so utterly piss-poor it made me want to lacerate myself, and that's when I'm happy for Christsakes!
Altogether, this is the worse excuse for an album that has ever graced my now soiled ears. It should be clear how much I liked this one by now. If you are looking for something in the vein of the cartoonish that actually has substance to it, I'd highly recommend the new Fantomas album. Regardless, this is one Baby that should have never been born...better yet, why didn't anyone have enough sense to abort it?
