A Review by:
– The Dude on the Right
So you liked Uncle Kracker because he does the song “Follow Me,” which if you listen to the lyrics you find out that it’s a song about cheating on your husband/fiancé with a loser whose only quality is able to turn you on. It’s a lovely little song, so then you bought the CD, popped it into your CD player, and one of the first things you hear is Kid Rock giving advice to Uncle Kracker, namely “make sure you pinch it at the top before you roll it down.” Okay, that’s a little stunner, so you keep listening and get treated to some swearing (guess you should have paid a little more attention to the “Parental Advisory” label), and find out that pretty much, Uncle Kracker is a rapper who mixes melodies into the songs, like on “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah.” Don’t get me wrong, I like this CD, and give it a 75% on the Entertainment Ave! listenability scale, but it always cracks me up a little bit when a singer or band put one or two radio-friendly tunes on a CD (Sugar Ray did that at the beginning of their boom days too), but when you pop that CD into the player, things are totally different.
That’s it for this quick review! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
