5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it!, 8 Feb 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: You Can Feel Me (Audio CD)
The first time one sees Har Mar Superstar saunter onstage, the Ron Jeremy similarities become strikingly clear. Both are chubby, balding, and unlikely celebrities. But both are also very skilled at what they do....no one but silky-voiced Har Mar has both men and women eating out of his hands while wearing nothing but a tight pair of dark briefs.
While it's tempting to write Har Mar off as a clever novelty, it's also erroneous. The beats are real, and his pipes are spectacular! Try not to dance as he contemplates making out with "the sweet little girl next door" on "We Could Be Heavy." His voice swoops and soars like a lothario in heat. While many lyrics on the album are drop-dead bizarre and funny -- like rhyming "chorizo" and "Mother Theresa" -- the performer's emotional earnestness often takes the material to another level.
The Gossip's Beth Ditto lends her soulful gospel wail to the sexy, minimalistic "Power Lunch," a song that sounds like it could have been on Prince's "Dirty Mind" album. "Elephant Walk," a funky electroclash collaboration with The Faint is both funny and infectious. Other roof-raisers include the piano-based party anthem "EZ Pass," "Freedom Summer," and "No Chorus," an R. Kelly-like sing-rap that tells a quick tale involving pot, traffic violations, a sexy lady cop, and masturbation.
Buy the album and see why notable bands like The Strokes, The Faint, Tenacious D, The Hives, and Incubus have taken Har Mar on the road with them.
After appearing in numerous national magazines and serving as Ms. Kelly Osbourne's date to MTV's 2002 Video Music Awards, Har Mar's star keeps rising, and I'm already eagerly looking forward to his next offering!
One part Stevie Wonder and one part Andy Kaufman, Har Mar Superstar is an American original.
