CHARLES ALBRIGHT: I’m on Drugs: 7” EP

Jul 13, 2010

Mildly over-the-top one-man-bandism with poundy drums, blistery guitars, and squawky vocals! And, while i appreciate the appropriately mononucleotic flipout of “I’m On Drugs” as well as the crunched-out “Tell Her No”-esque riff of “I Wanna Hold You,” it’s really the mindlessly positive “I’m Just A Fine Young Man, And I’m Doing So Well” gutter-raver that sends me on a one-way trip to Albright-ville. I mean, as many times as he says it, ya can’t help but buy into his conviction. Better than self-hypnosis AND a Thighmaster®! BEST SONG: “I’m Just A Fine Young Man, And I’m Doing So Well” BEST SONG TITLE: “I’m Just A Fine Young Man, And I’m Doing So Well” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: The A-side and B-side are identical, with a run-off groove message reading “CUT BY ((Japanese characters))!!! Ya dig?”
