Hilarious (until the novelty wears off)
on 28 January 2010
Judging by the amount of 1-star and 5-star reviews compared to the rest, its safe to say this is an album you will either love or hate. I had this on my wish list for ages and, as a fan of the radio show and lover of the parody tracks, was looking forward to this Xmas pressie more than any others. When it came I eagerly put it on to convince my husband how funny it was, and ended up being very embarrassed and pressing the 'skip' button after the first verse of most of them. That said, 'lorry driver' is still a favourite of mine, even though it sounds different to how it did on the radio (over-worked / cleaned up too much). The same happened with 'nana window'. I was hoping to see some other tracks on there including the Santa one etc, but this is nothing that other people haven't already said in their reviews. Some tracks I can't comment on as I've tried to forget them already.
You'd like to think that Chris and his producers will try and read these reviews to get feedback through unbiased public opinion, and if so I hope this mixed reaction from Amazon customers doesn't put him off releasing a second album. As long as they take on board what is being said and put it right next time round. Saying that, I don't think I'd buy a second album, I'd only buy a couple of the individual tracks, as the 'filler' songs are a complete waste of money. p.s. is it me or don't they play the parody songs on the show anymore? Haven't heard any for ages.
