The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies have released a Groovtastic (My word) new album!
That’s what I would say if I actually liked it…..which I don’t…..yep, I do not like the new album that’s come’n out, so sue me. I do, in fact, dig the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, don’t get me wrong. In their new album they try a new technique to their otherwise great and successful swing music, and it’s, get ready folks, here it comes: ska. The thing is….it just doesn’t work for them. I’m a big fan of ska myself as well but nooooooooot like this. To me it just sounds as if they work both ska and swing in all the songs, kudos for trying new mixtures, but just like Tequila, it may sound good when in the process but the outcome just makes ya need to pray to the porcelain gods.
You can’t put a rose (The name Cherry Poppin’ Daddies) by a piece of shit (The new album)….it won’t make it pretty nor will it make it smell good. It will just end up being a piece of shit with a rose by it.
Guys, just go back to make’n swing music. Please. For me?
