4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, just not enough of it
The Bloodhound Gang return after quite some time on top form.
This album proves that they can master any kind of music they turn their hand to, from heavy metal "Balls Out" to the "Uhn Tiss", which sounds as though it would be more at home in an Ibiza club, as well as everything inbetween, such as "I'm The Least You Could Do."
This album has some great tracks,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Re-Review Of Hefty Fine
When I got into Jimmy Pop's rap/punk outfit back during the time Hooray for Boobies came out, I had never bargained on waiting five years for new material. Since it had taken them so long, it was easy to believe this would be the strongest set of songs to be committed by a bunch of puerile humourists.
Well, disappointingly that ain't the case with Hefty Fine. Its...

The Bloodhound Gang return after quite some time on top form.
This album proves that they can master any kind of music they turn their hand to, from heavy metal "Balls Out" to the "Uhn Tiss", which sounds as though it would be more at home in an Ibiza club, as well as everything inbetween, such as "I'm The Least You Could Do."
This album has some great tracks, the lyrics of which will undoubtedly stick in your head, notably "Ralph Wiggum" and "Foxtrot..."
The only downside to this album is that it's surprisingly short. There's 13 tracks, 3 of which are 10 second long talking clips, and if you cut out the 5 minutes of silence at the end of track 13, it ends up at a little over 35 minutes.
It's a real shame, because the album has such great songs on it. More material would easily equal a 5th star for this review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Re-Review Of Hefty Fine, 11 Dec 2005
This review is from: Hefty Fine (Audio CD)
When I got into Jimmy Pop's rap/punk outfit back during the time Hooray for Boobies came out, I had never bargained on waiting five years for new material. Since it had taken them so long, it was easy to believe this would be the strongest set of songs to be committed by a bunch of puerile humourists.
Well, disappointingly that ain't the case with Hefty Fine. Its good to hear new songs from them, for instance Foxtrot is one of their catchiest tunes to date and the simplicity of Pennsylvania could cause singalongs with its infectious chorus. However, nothing here is up there with their old material, even 'Uhn Tiss, Uhn Tiss, Uhn Tiss' as contagious as it is, you can't help but think this is The Bad Touch with a faster beat.
However, on the flipside of things, this is a good album, with metal riffs (Balls Out) big punk songs (Ralph Wiggum) and more techno inspiration (I'm The Least You Could Do). Even depending on your level of resistance, the killer pay-off line in No Hard Feelings will win you over instantly. Even the lead guitarist gets a bit of solo action on the appropriately titled 'Farting With A Walkman On'.
What brings it down most of all is the length of the record and the skits. Its just a wonder how the next album will turn out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gang are back, and it's been worth the wait !, 2 Oct 2005
This review is from: Hefty Fine (Audio CD)
It's been a long time since Hooray for Boobies, but those rascals are back on form.
The Bloodhound Gang may act the fools, but the clever lyrics betray a high degree of intelligence.
'Hefty Fine' is a wonderful party album. Music doesn't always need to be serious and dark to be good. The subjects of the tracks are wonderfully stupid. My particular favourite is 'Ralph Wiggum', the lyrics of which are made up entirely of soundbites from the 'Simpsons'.
'Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo' has an incredibly catchy hook, and the powers that be should oblige the Gang by immediatley installing 'Pennsylvania' as the state anthem.
So the Bloodhound Gang have produced another great album certainly on par with Hooray for Boobies, and in my opinion have proved what an incredibly under-rated band they are.
Just remember A*hole bands have A*hole fans.

After 5 years of playing the Bloodhound Gangs Hooray for Boobies their latest cd could not have come soon enough and I was not disappointed. The style is different from their earlier albums and dare I say it their music has evolved ( Even if the lyrics remain at times simplistic ). Each of the tracks are excellent in their own right and are a refreshing change from the latest much hyped releases. This band will never be considered trendy or fashionable within the music press and media as recent reviews have demonstrated. But all the bad press is unfair as this group have once again released another excellent album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 16 Oct 2005
This review is from: Hefty Fine (Audio CD)
The song 'No hard Feelings' makes this album worth every penny. Sure they could have put on more tracks and less comedy but id rather have stand out songs than rubbish ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hefty Fine, 5 Dec 2005
This review is from: Hefty Fine (Audio CD)
its a welcome return to the Bloodhound Gang with a new selection of parental humour. if the cover is shocking this album is for you. it includes the single Foxtrot Charlie Uniform Kilo and a homeage to Ralph Wiggum.

5.0 out of 5 stars great record!!, 2 Oct 2005
This review is from: Hefty Fine (Audio CD)
I have been waiting for the Bloodhound Gang to release a new album for years and now its finally here. i thought it would be hard for them to live up to Hooray for Boobies but in my opinion they have. They still have the usual humour in all their songs, but they have changed their stlye in a few of their songs, a couple of the songs have more of a Trance/Techno beat ( i think ) but its still good, somehow it sounds right!
Any fan of the Bloodhound Gang should buy this and i would recommend it to anyone who has an open mind to styles of music.
