Because we have been waiting for you for a decade

Rick Ross, Fuck Buttons, Crystal Castles and Del the Funky Homosapien

Rick Ross – Trilla

Jeph: In ten years, I wonder how many albums there are going to be where my favourite track is the one with T-Pain on it? I can’t help it. I love that guy. The rest of the album is so-so, but you can’t fail with T-Pain. It is possible to make a bad song with T-Pain (Chris Brown did it), but T-Pain’s part of any song is always shining.

Meg: That is so weird. I was just thinking the exact same thing about Nelly. It’s like how many albums will there be in the next century where the tracks he contributes to are the best? I can tell you one thing, however many there are, it won’t be enough.

Jeph: Yeah, there’s a lot of collaborations on here. I was expecting more from the R. Kelly track. They should have put Kels on the T-Pain track and made an “I’m a Flirt Part II”.

Meg: Whoah. You actually call R. Kelly, Kels? That is so cool. I love you so much right now.




Fuck Buttons – Street Horrrsing

Can you imagine how it would be if you were actually cool enough to have your own band with the f-word right in the name? It’s like you wouldn’t even care what your parents thought, or whether you lived or died. Fuck, that would be cool. It would be kind of like being in that other band with the f-word in their name. Fuck.




Crystal Castles – Crystal Castles

Meg: Initially, I had really liked this album and my favourite part was the fact that it was only two songs long. Then I realized that you had only loaded two of the songs onto my iPod and that the whole thing was actually a lot longer. Now I’m kind of on the fence about the whole thing.

Jeph: The other songs are kinda like those first ones. The album sounds nice, but it’s all video-game electronic music. It’s all well done, and kinda original at times. But one album of video-game electronic music is really all any one person needs. So if you already have one, ignore this. Or better, yet, just download some video-game synth/sequencer emulator and make your own.

Meg: Or better yet, only listen to two of the songs.




Del the Funky Homosapien – Eleventh Hour

We are Del experts. We have seen him live and listened to everything that he has ever recorded. As such, you can trust us when we tell you that this is a fine album. Nothing wrong with it. On the other hand, nothing really stands out. The beats are the same bouncy 8-bit funk that we heard back on Both Sides of the Brain, and the rest is just Del rapping. And if anyone out there considers themselves to be a Del purist or any fool thing, do not try calling us out. Remember, we are Del experts and we will school you. Especially don’t call us out on using the term “8-bit funk”. We used it and that’s that.

  1. Del-fonix

    So, you remember that Del/Dinosaur Jr. collabo from back in the day – off the Judgement Night Soundtrack? Rock and rap came together for the soundtrack of an Emilio Estevez movie, and all was right with the world for about 8 months.
