I crowd surfed to this guys and it was unreal, except the next day when I woke up and my back was so sore from all the hands pushing on your back. Man the only back pain I enjoy is 'Shaggers Back", anyway onto the album.
Unit kicks of with the song 'I Like Your Old Stuff Better Than Your New Stuff' and never has a song been so true, I mean I love the Stone's old stuff, their new stuff no way I mean geriatrics singing about rooting chicks! really I don't think so. This song is kick ass with it's syth and electronica sound, seriously cool.
We then move onto 'Everyday Formula' which is way cool and then we move onto one of my favourite songs on the album '!* (Song Formerly Known As)' it has such great beat, dirty riff and the lyrics are genius
“I don't go to parties baby
Coz’ people tend to freak me out
Watch their lips you can work it out
I can hear the words but I still don't know what it's all about"
The next song I can totally relate to 'Black Bugs' a song about video games, man I know that feeling, last level, no lives left and one boss to beat! PURE FUCKING AWESOME song and so true! 'World Of Sleaze' is the next song and from it's slow start it's building up and the lyrics are unreal, who else can sing about dicks and cunts and make it sound cool. The next song is 'I Piss Alone' a really funny song that starts slow and builds to this solid wall of sound, grungy and seriously kick ass song.
Then we move onto the title track 'Unit' which is a short electronica song really cool the way it builds. Then we move onto quite possibly the best song on the album
'I Will Lick Your Asshole' what a killer name for a song (hey, Redi come here my asshole needs a clean you bitch, that's it, now lick it good!). Killer song from start to finish. The comes the hugely popular song about 'Modern Life' and our mass consumer life that we live, cool music (great drum beat) and awesome lyrics as well.
'Polyestergirl' is the next track and doesn't everybody want one of those, no bullshit just sex. The track has a really cool electronic sound and awesomely funny lyrics.I guess it's not far off with all the plastic girls around today. Then we move onto the wall of sound that is '1234' a cool song that you can imagine them mucking around in the flea and rat infested studio on this song. Then we move onto 'Mr T' a slower track but still way cool. the last song is 'Just Another Beautiful Story' with it's awesome electronic intro and cool riff it is a great way to end a true classic album, way ahead of it's time, but time has proved them right, this album is still as good as it was when it was released back in 1997.
Do yourself a favour and get this album I give it 4 and a half shots of whiskey out of five (the 5 shots are for their live performance they kick ass). Till next week
Peace out my bitches!
