Thoughts

Oof, what is this album?

This was in our minds because in Pam & Tommy, Mötley Crüe were annoyed when they got bumped for Beck, so why not follow up a week of listening to their album with a week of listening to his? I do wish I hadn’t. It’s not bad stuff, really, but it’s all mixed up and completely all over the place. One minute you’re listening to singer/songwriter warbling, the next you’re in some hardcore hip-hop that wouldn’t be out of place on an album out of Compton. It was jarring and ended up just being annoying… especially that last track, seriously, dude.
