Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

On the cover of I Get Wet, Andrew WK appears as the quintessential New York City rock & roll star: an iconic, bloody-nosed Neanderthal with a mop of greasy hair plastered over his face. At first glance, you'd swear he was the star of some new ad campaign, dabbling in metal's aesthetics for some ironic thrill. But then, you notice that look of steely determination in WK's eyes. And then you hear this debut album and you realise that, miraculously, this 21-year-old has turned out the best old-skool rock & roll record in living memory. It sounds something like Van Halen brawling with the Beastie Boys circa Licensed to Ill, with Elton John hammering away at the piano and Mötley Crüe spiking the drinks: a 12-track collection of undiluted rock maximalism that owes nothing to any supposed lo-fidelity "punk" ethic, and absolutely everything to the power of a great tune and a crate of beer. The priceless first single "Party Hard" lays out the manifesto, but there's much more where that came from: the rock-operatic "Ready to Die", the decadent blast of "Party 'til You Puke", the last-gasp clarion-call of "Don't Stop Living in the Red"--all stupidly, jaw-droppingly excellent explosions of rawk purity. Shift up, Eminem: the crown of the white-trash hero is up for grabs, and by the sound of I Get Wet, Andrew WK brawls as hard as he parties. --Louis Pattison

The lyrics are simple. The tunes are simple. The vocalist isn't difficult to emulate. So why has no-one come up with this before? This is one of the genre-defining albums. Grossly underrated, this isn't likely to be for everybody. But Andrew WK and his band have an unknown energy; they love their fans and we love him. A fantastic album.

This man... This scruffy looking man... He looks like my groovy punk-rock uncle. I love Andrew WK. I heard 'She Is Beautiful' on Kerrang, and I dashed out for this album! It stayed in my CD player for weeks, the only other time that has ever happened is when I got into the Punk/Rock/Metal/Mosher scene whatever you want to refer it as and I heard Green Day for the first time. That changed my life, and so did this.
Andrew WK like one of the other reviews say, is quite simply a god. I now own every available recording by him bar one, which I have on order. Buy this CD, you will love it!!
The songs are so catchy you'll be trying to sing along on the first play, its just one of those albums you will not tire of.
Every track offers a new tune to learn and sing along to, from speedy, thrashy but all around catchy stuff like 'Party Till You Puke' to more sobering yet still loud tracks like 'Don't Stop Living In The Red' it is all awesome. This is one CD that you'll like so much that even if your best mate said Mr. WK was rubbish, you'd wanna knock him out, and probably will!
JUST BUY IT! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!

This is not an album that will be remembered as a classic, it isn't a work of genius and isn't particularly original... but 'I Get Wet' was never meant to be any of those things.

The singles 'Party Hard' & 'Party Til You Puke' are the only tracks which are really good with only a couple of others being particularly interesting, and even those are extremely cheesey. The album pretty much has one sound - big loud guitars, a strong beat and Andrew WK churning out simplisticly catchy choruses, which pretty much always includes the word 'PARTY!'

Despite all this however, 'I Get Wet' is a surprisingly enjoyable listen. The cheesey-ness has got to put a smile on your face and after you've got drunk with all your buddies you'll be shouting 'PARTY TIL YOU PUKE!', playing it at top volume and waking up all the neighbours.

'I Get Wet' may sound like Meatloaf discovering heavy rock but it's great fun; it serves its purpose as a feel good party album, but nothing more. 3stars

Hate Robbie Williams? Detest 'Pop Idol'? Great. You'll love this CD, just over half an hour of sheer rock and roll bliss. Imagine Steve Jones of the Pistols on guitars, overdubbed to the point that they form a tidal wave of sound, a mountain side bigger than the Clash on Tommy Gun, faster than the Ramones. There is more testosterone here than in a thousand Gold's Gyms. Add some rinky dink keyboards for a laugh, over which these huge, huge tunes bump and grind like Iggy Pop's 'Real Wild Child', (or his forgotten classic 1988 "Instinct"album). First albums are often disappointing because the artist's ambition outstrips the available talent. No such danger here: this is a situation where someone has set out to achieve a specific sound and is right on target, right on the money. And then there is Mr W.K. , whose chief preoccupations seem to be partying, girls, and well, that's about it. And the less he is interested in, the better. His vocals are just right: he's enjoying himself, frequently sounding overwhelmed by the sheer power of the genie he's unleashed. He is mining the gold seam of rock and roll and he knows it. In the long history of rock and roll it is frequently the case that coming up with a 'Be Bop A Lula' or a 'Wooly Bully' is a million times more difficult than delivering a self-indulgent, reflective piece of work. This self-penned album strips out any danger of a guitar solo or anything vaguely arty. No ballads, thankfully. The short playing time is a bonus: this really is a case of 'less is more'. Mr W. K. knows the value of economy and is clearly a major talent. Let's hope he doesn't waste it, because in 2002 very few young people have what it takes.

All I can say is this album truly rocks. Every track is a gem, partly because they sound very similar, but different enough to tell the difference. Many people have criticised Andrew but I honestly can't see why. Tracks such as 'I Love NYC', 'Ready To Die' and the title track 'I Get Wet' are superb. With the recent nu-metal craze this album is for those who enjoy real, head-banging rock, but with an ever-so-slightly punk twist. Every track on the album is marvellous and if you buy this album I promise you won't be dissapointed.

This is one of those CDs where you leg it home from the shop as soon as you've bought it and you bang it straight in the CD player. AND, after all the hype, you're not disappointed.
Every single track on this CD is a winner - its real feel-good heavy rock music that makes you want to jump around and shout loudly.
Particular favourite tracks (although they're all great) are Girls Own Love, Got To Do It and She is Beautiful.
I reckon that even if you dont want to like this CD, you will anyway. There is nothing to not like - it is melodic, anthemic, punk-pop set against heavy metal riffs - AMAZING!
Buy this CD and give Andrew WK the recognition he deserves - he is a god!
