This is easily the dumbest disc I’ve ever heard … which the members of The Mapes will no doubt be ecstatic to read. Songs titled “Your Pussy (Makes Me Vomit)” and “If You Got an Ass (I Wanna Fuck It)” aren’t intended to generate critical approval, know what I mean?

The shock-punk foursome’s lyrics—generally detailing sexual acts, drinking exploits or both—range from mildly amusing (“I don’t know if I cared for you/But I cared for your tits”) to downright tasteless (“If you wanna keep me/You better find some stairs to fall down … I hope you’re just getting fat/’Cause if you’re pregnant you are dead”). No matter how cringe-worthy, though, the 10 quickie tracks can’t compete with the band’s legendarily lewd live act. There’s simply no good reason to play this thing more than once—other than to witness someone else’s (predictable) reaction.
