sheep on drugs - f**k
So I know what youíve all been thinking. I can read your weak minds and look into your souls without any fear that I will be exposed. I know youíve been desperate for more Vizgig reviews; youíre thinking why has he abandoned us to the narcissistic triviality of your bland reviews, that proliferate so many sites (not this one of course). And youíve been desperate to read my wisdom and expression of injustice and intolerance. Well I kinda of felt the same way about Sheep on Drugs, I felt abandoned and confused uncertain of my place in the world. So here you go your bit of peace; your slice of happiness in an otherwise horrific world. First of all let me start by saying I have a real soft spot for Sheep on Drugs, I grew up on a sheep farm and I used to go to the local city and go music shopping and they always had Greatest Hits, I thought it was awesome, because man I wish sheep were on drugs those things suck ass to deal with. They always escape and they like to hit you in the back and shit. So thankfully FXXk kicks total ass. Itís like a smash in the face to mediocrity and bland electronica. Fighting to retain my waning interest in music, it succeeds in reinvigorating my gospel loins and expanding my sober mind. That sentence doesnít really mean anything, but you get the gist. FXXk expands on everything one would expect on the Sheepies. Some crazy assed vocals over hard-hitting techno sound. Quirky fun dance music, while at the same time being incredibly edgy and never killing ones interest. Just balls out strangeness, and random happiness. Moreover it actually is funny and kind of silly, without being too cheesy, that's a definite plus for em anyway. And interestingly I find there is an increased level of manic punk energy, and more sort of fuck it all type mentality, and an overall increased aggression in the music. But not in a lame way at all, just a more all out feeling, a structure and feel to the songs that is wholly unique. Great for singing and jumping and going absolutely nutso to. Woo hoo.
