Okay, this is either a.) one of the funniest jokes ever, b.) one of the worst albums ever, or c.) both! Vindictives songs performed by the band, with pan flutes, chimes, xylophones, violins, and acoustic guitars! Vocals sung in a plaintive, non-screamy manner! Imagine hearing acoustic versions of “I’m in Trouble Now” and “Ugly American!” If you aren’t familiar with the Vindictives (one of my favorite bands of all time!), this will mean nothing to you. But for the rest of you, I must say: Holy Ridiculosity, Batman! If this were a cereal, it’d be Urkel O’s. You just gotta HOPE it’s a joke! Insane!
