Fun Lovin' Criminals - Livin' In The City [2005]

Fun Lovin' Criminals - Livin' In The City

Hosted by
The colour suits him

This is a good one.
I cannot pretend to like this shit. I want to, I really do but, something's not right.
I mean, check out this lyrical conundrum of unclassifiable complexity:

Did you ever think the world, would get so hard
children killing children, in our own back yard..
Did you ever think you'd say,
that you gave up on god.

From the song 'Gave up on God'.
What a crock of shit.
I don't know whether they really do believe in God or they are trying to align themselves with that kind of 'hard gangsta rappers with faith' ideal or what. They don't seem to know if they want to rap, croak, growl or sing. A new genre perhaps?
Either way these pricks are flirting with the idea of 'spontaneous projectile vomiting through music'. A rather new concept to me but, it works.
They are unconvincing in their toughness; their grave observations of the world; akin to the pseudo-pop-analysis that we have to suffer whenever we hear The Black Eyed Peas spouting their version of the world to us.. (Think 'Where is the Love' and remember how much you wished you could aim a rifle right through your TV screen, gleefully and insanely laughing 'there is no love there is no love you fuckers!!!' whilst picking them off one by one). The Black Eyed Peas. Grrrr. Where is that shotgun..

So here we have a similar bunch of sadsacks who think that acting tough and trying to put the worlds problems into a 'song' (whose lyrics have all the poetic abilities of a 9 yr old in the school poetry competition), is going to make them popular and maybe even sell a few albums (I am assuming here as surely they don't think they can do anything else like..Become a number one selling hit? Change the world? haha.).
They probably will sell a few.
Might even be popular.
I still want to kill them.

If you listen to this album and like it, you need help. At the very least, you need to have your right to vote removed.

you aware the Fun Lovin' Criminals are actually quite a good band. Have you ever heard their music before you rip into 4 lines of one song?

Of course I have heard of this band.
Hmm. Nothing much else of worth to reply to here.
Uri: well put my friend.
