I'm just glad I got to see even the abbreciated set at M3 last year.  I'm really digging the hell outta this new album.  Some pretty heavy stuff.  PLTITEOTW and TBOBW are two of the most lightweight songs on the album.

I liked Feel the Steel a lot but was disappointed by Balls out. Is this a step up again?

Tough call. Depends on the person, I guess. On first listen I'm really digging the album.

That's good to hear. I didn't mind those songs, but I was hoping they wouldn't lose the heaviness.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Got a copy of it yesterday. It has a few good songs, but not as good the last album, which wasn't as good as the one before that. Luckily Cozmo was right that the two singles were the lightest songs on the album.

Favourites would be Gloryhole, and Gangbang at the Old Folks Home. Bukakke Tears and Ten Strikes You're Out are also among the better tracks.

You can tell that's an older episode, because they're actually discussing what's new in music. :lol I think it's the most recent one they're talking about Shakira O'Neal the basketball player's latest album.
Everything those guys say is gold.

I've been going back and listening to the old ones.  Good stuff.

Just had my first listen to the new album.....to me it's a good , typical SP album........good music, humourous lyrics and very clever in parts but it's also a step backward in all departments from Balls Out.   The production on most songs is more raw , the songs are for the most part more basic (sounds like less thought/effort) , a lot of the humour isn't quite as clever and there's nothing as immediately catchy as Tiger Woods or Tomorrow Night.

Faves: Bukkake Tears and The Burden of Being Wonderful

Don't get me wrong - very good album , just not as good as what came before and I think after 3 albums of the same sorta stuff the joke is juuuuuuuust starting to wear the tiniest bit thin.  I'd like to see them do something a little different on the next album .

Okay, so here's something I happened to notice:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pN2tceUC40E

Demolicious #6.  They review a song called I Feel Nothing, by a band called Reaper.  The guitarist for that band is Mario Consolo, who's married to Cecilia, one of our members.

Small world.

I agree.
I do actually prefer the slightly more raw production over the overcompressed sound of the last album, although it could be a bit more consistent in sound.

So, how'd you like the rest of it?

I'm listening to it for the 4th time now. Glory Hole is easily my favorite, especially at 2:20. That song ends really strong as well. Bukkake Tears might be my second favorite so far. The intro to Pussywhipped is their best intro yet (both album and song), but the rest of the song lacks a bit. I'd say Ten Strikes Your Out and B.V.S are tied for my least favorite tracks. Overall, this album is exactly what I expected. I like it. I'll give it a solid 7.95/10.

Agreed. It's shamelessly stolen from Metallica's "Battery", but SP usually produce their best material by ripping off other bands  :yarr

If anything, they should steal more.

I hear no similarity to Battery at all aside from being an acoustic intro to a heavy song. Never made a connection there.
But I agree their best stuff is usually the more clearly derivative stuff, such as Fat Girl, Eatin' Ain't Cheatin' and Party All Day; basically the first album. On the latest album, it feels more like common metal music with funny lyrics.

That said, there are some good songs on here, and I had Gloryhole stuck in my head when I woke up just now. I'm not sure what to make of that. :lol Maybe my day is planned?

I'm hooked on the new album.  I recently discovered the band.  I wanted to buy an album a while back, so I listened to both their albums on youtube.  I ended up getting Balls Out.  I'm finding I like the new album quite a bit better.  Gloryhole, Bukkake Tears, the list goes on and on.  So many good songs.

Liked it so much I just bought Feel the Steel.  I listened to it once, so I know I like it.  Looking forward to some more listens while at work tomorrow.  Man, people see me with my headphones on laughing.  If they only knew...

+1 on that.

I bet I've listened to this album at least 20 times by now. The only song I really don't like is Ten Strikes You're Out.

Glory Hole is officially my favorite SP song.

I really wanted to direct some from the "Women's Forsaken Shirt" thread to this thread and tell them what champions of feminism the band are.  I would specifically tell them that "Turn Out The Lights" would be the place to start, as it deals with the norms of female insecurity in an intimate relationship.

I didn't think anyone would buy it, though.  :lol

Don't forget the encouraging words of "Stripper Girl", "Fat Girl" and "Girl From Oklahoma"

Exactly.  Detailing the plight of everyday women forced into less than optimal circumstances to survive in a male-centric world.

Also, if you guys aren't following them on Twitter, you totally should, especially Stix.
