A Little Lonelier

February 9, 2009

This weekend, I listened to the entirety of The Lonely Island’s Incredibad, previously mentioned here, and was pleasantly surprised. A solid album with hilarious guest appearances, from The Strokes’ Julian Casablanca to a scat-tastic Jack Black, The Lonely Island didn’t half-ass their first record, and it shows.

Previously, they have relied on the music video format, using larger-than-life visual characters and quick gags. Impressively, they are still able to keep that broad feel through songs like the previously mentioned “I’m On A Boat” as well as the Timbalandian “Boombox”.

Unfortunately, there is a bit of recycling, with 6 of the 19 songs having already been released in some form, but ’tis the life of a debut album.

Personally, I’m looking forward to the cultural reception to this satire of the modern-day music scene.
