Monkey Business - The Noble Art Of Wasting Time
I tried my best to find sound samples for this band on the internet, but that seemed quite impossible (they are there, I just didn’t find their website). But I figured it has the word monkey in it’s bandname, so it’s bound to be fun. Boy was I wrong.
 
This is the most godawful piece of crap I received this year I think. Could be wrong, but this one is very very close. Horrid rock music. Absolute bullshit to release this. The songs suck, the vocals suck, the production sucks, the lyrics suck, the only thing I like just a bit is the artwork, but that ain’t gonna save ‘em!
 
Well, we have an attempt to recreate 80’s rock music, like Mötley Crüe and such, but they completely missed it. The songs themselves are utterly boring, with riffs that are completely unable to grab anyone’s attention at all, soaring high off-tone vocals that just sting your eardrums, transitions that are certainly not correct, and most of all, completely meaningless solo’s that are there just for the sake of having solo’s. Seriously, I’m used to quite some garbage, but this album I even couldn’t listen to the end the first time I heard it. Every time I press play I feel depressed.
 
They did get one thing right though, their album title The Noble Art Of Wasting Time. My time that is! And any other reviewers they send this to. My condolences to all of them. They better change their name to Monkey Vomit and get a ridiculous stage act which features them riding hobby-horses while fighting a cardboard dragon with fists of flowers. Then I might take them seriously. Fuck off!
