Album Review

Doob Doob O’ Rama [coll] – [Normal Records]

Thurston Hunger   5/29/2006   CD, Soundtrack

I can’t explain it, and I ain’t apologizing, but
this stuff makes me giddy as a four-year old
eating his weight in chocoloate. Is it the
complete-frills approach, hyperactive charts,
Betty Boop vocals, slap-happy tabla. Male
and female wailing, man we *know* the story,
it’s the sway of love/sex. He wants, so does
she, but she’s going to make him work for it.
The breathy shrill vocals of the women here
drive me *insane* (um that’s the good insane,
I know not everyone’s into this). And the guys
are smooth, they get away with leering, the
way a handsome charmed prince does. A good
social critic would deplore the over-the-top
candy served up to India’s impoverished masses,
but that critic would miss a lotta fun. Sends
Shiva up and down my spine. -Thurston Hunger
