Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Zebrahead's PLAYMATE OF THE YEAR is quintessential turn-of-the-century pop-rock, blending an impressive variety of styles to arrive at a set of perfect pop radio fodder. BarenakedLadies-style white-boy rap, Nirvana-flavoured power riffs, Beck-influenced, loopy electronic touches, retro-'80s moves,and catchy, alt rock choruses are all combined here, to thegreat credit of producer Howard Benson, who manages to makethe whole thing cohere.
The album's upbeat title tune isa perfect case in point, as cheesy organ, breakbeats, rap, Big Rock guitar, and Cheap Trick-influenced vocal harmonies rub up against each other, but somehow never seem to clash. There are no grand artistic aspirations here; PLAYMATE OF THE YEAR is intended as fast-paced, breezy fun, which exactly what it turns out to be.
