CD Review – Parry Gripp

Do You Like Waffles?

Oglio Records

Twenty-two tracks (plus a sing Along and Karaoke Mix of the title track) that are essentially commercial jingles that never made it into commercials. The lead singer of Nerf Herder is a master of the tongue-in-cheek (just listen to their song “Van Halen”). The highlights here are the title track, “Got to Dip It!” and “The Ballad of Melvin the Magic Hot Dog.” He’s good at what he does and he does this really well, but it’s hard to pop in a 24 track CD that is less than 20 minutes long.
