Album Review: LMFAO - 'Sorry For Party Rocking'

A soul destroying second record

Album Review: LMFAO - 'Sorry For Party Rocking'

“I be up in the party, lookin’ for a hottie to bone”, begins the title track to this LA ‘rap’ duo’s second album. Yet it’s not the persistent and aggressive misogyny that is the most soul-destroying thing about the record. Nor is it songs so imbecilic that if you ate a can of Alphabetti Spaghetti you could shit out more intelligent lyrics to a more pleasing tune.

It’s that it’s all ever-so-slightly tongue-in-cheek, with an Epic Movie ability to make their parody far more revolting than the genre it’s parodying. LMFAO understood the pain they would be inflicting on the world and did it anyway. That’s a horrifying thought – even Lucifer had good intentions.
