The Lonely Island – ‘Turtleneck & Chain’ review

The Lonely Island - 'Turtleneck & Chain' album review


Continuing to party, but this time with devastating covers from auto-tuned lands

If the Jackass boys can play with 3D diarrhoea as they push 40, why shouldn’t The Lonely Island continue their frat-isms into middle age? The Saturday Night Live trio pick up where they left off with 2009’s ‘Incredibad’, spoofing hip-hop and R&B with Rihanna, Snoop Dogg, JT et al garnering slices of self-deprecation kudos.

Alas, parodying Auto-Tuned-to-hell R&B is largely pointless due to the ridiculousness of much of the genre anyway – it actually renders the Akon -featuring ‘I Just Had Sex’ less funny than most of his other tunes.
