Are You There God? It’s Us, the Monsignors
Despite the fact the “concept” and cover “art” of this CD sent ripples of aversion through me (on the CD itself is a picture of some fat slob in drag clutching a stuffed bunny, reading a box of Playtex. Apparently tampons are funny, although I doubt the young “men” in the Monsignors have even seen a tampon, much less know which end to use.) I decided to go ahead and give it a listen, figuring everything deserves at least a fair chance. If it was bad, I could take them to task for raping Judy Blume’s celebrated novel and feel justified. If it was good, I’d still take them to task, but I would also give credit to the positive things on the CD. So I listened. And I realized.
This is worse than bad, it’s boring.
It isn’t funny. It isn’t silly. It isn’t even bad enough to be good. It’s just a pathetic and sad collection of lackluster punk with strangled horns. Someone’s parents have too much money.
