I've been a big fan of Beardyman since seeing his youtube links and finally getting to see him live a couple of years ago.
His main brilliance is being able to start a night without a plan and basically wing it and create an hour and a half of comedy / music genius using just his mouth and a few electronic gadgets.
The move into the CD market surprised me to be honest, but realistically it was always destined to happen.
So does this album take his live comedy and music brilliance and place it onto CD for all to hear?
Well almost.... The album is big, 20 tracks ( a couple of these are 30 seconds of humour ( see "if only" ) some of the tracks are fully 6 minutes of drum and bass.
The humour is there and great, but after a few listens you start skipping through the specific humour tracks. I mean thats the nature of it.
Some of the tracks are sheer genius "Vampire Skank" my favorite I think by far. Some are show-cases of his versatility and some are straight forward tracks to release.
All in all pretty good. But not quite perfect yet.
Will I buy the next one if its released, the answer is yes.
