Well it made no sense to me at all on first listen and I've been a Residents fan for years so this didnt come as a surprise. "Boxes of Armageddon", "Secret Room", "Blood on the Bunny".... what could it all mean?? Then I had the fortune of seeing The Bunny Boy Tour live and everything clicked into place and it suddenly became clear that the Residents have produced yet another great album. Best tracks must include the already mentioned "Boxes of Armageddon", "Pictures from a Little Girl" and "Fever Dreams". This album needs repeated listening so dont dismiss it after one play. Probably the best Residents album since the wonderful 'Demons Dance Alone."

This sounds more like a 'solo' effort. Wasn't sure I liked it at first.
Lacks the lushness of Demons Dance Alone album. More jagged.

But it certainly rewards further plays...but it would have been better
with Molly!

Utterly bonkers, I love this album to bits. It almost beats Mark Of The Mole as my favourite album. Boxes Of Armageddon has been on an almost pemenant loop in my brain for nearly two years!

HASH(0x8bd459c0) out of 5 stars Dark side of the...Bunny!? 22 Sept. 2008
By Wozwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album is a great listen. It is definitely not without it's element of creepiness that comes standard with any Residents' release. Without explaining the storyline let me just say that this album is among their better stuff. It is UNCANNY how perfectly this cd matches up with The Wizard of Oz. Like seriously! I had never done the Dark Side of the Moon thing so A friend asked If I wanted to and much like I suspected (after like 3 songs) it did NOT impress me. However, my friend wanted to hear the Bunny Boy so I suggested we play it alongside Wizard of OZ and Holy Sh** It matched up to the T. It's almost like they timed the album to match up to certain parts. It was hilarious!!! It definitely gives the actions a stranger feel. Also makes me want to sync up other Residents' albums to that movie. Match it up to the 2nd Lion roar and you'll be in business. Trust me if you want a good laugh!! But yeah a good listen as well.

HASH(0x8c49c234) out of 5 stars darkly happy 19 Jun. 2009
By S. A DUNN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just purchased this album by The Residents.

As usual with anything put out by The Residents, one cannot just casually listen to it and get all the dark nuances and disturbing messages hidden within it. One must "eat" the album and digest it to truly appreciate the Residents dark, Edgar Allen Poe like art.

For instance, recently I purchased the Residents' Animal Lover from Amazon. Upon first listening to it I was disappointed, that it didn't quite meet my expectations earlier encountered by such Residential classics like "The Commercial Album,' "Duckstab," and "God in 3 Persons." Yet upon repeated listening and digesting the album "Animal Lover," my opinion of it changed drastically!

This is their latest work. (2009) For an ensemble that has been around now for over 35 years, they haven't lost their dark roots or their atonal qualities of mixing sharps and flats in a way that can turn "Ava Maria" into funeral music!
HASH(0x8c49c138) out of 5 stars accessible... weird 7 Jun. 2014
By S Tuffnell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"The Bunny Boy" is a bunch of downbeat songs about life and dying and whatever else springs into the minds of these nutters. The accompanying internet interaction and DVD would be helpful to comprehend what this is all about but it is hard to locate these days so we are stuck with just the audio and it is baffling but bedazzling at the same time. The story involves the search for a brother who has mysteriously disappeared. The Residents are always going to surprise with their unique brand of music. This album certainly has its fair share of bizarre moments but is a much more polished production with some music that actually is well played, not sounding like a kid banging on a xylophone or out of tune guitars competing with dissonant synths, and nasally Louisianan twang in the singing and a ton of repetitive chanting. This is perhaps a more accessible album as those are the normal attributes of a Resident's project and they are for the most part absent here.

It opens with Boxes of Armageddon that draws us into the enigmatic atmosphere of bleak ravings set to music. I'm Not Crazy is ironic as I always thought they were, and Pictures From a Little Girl has a little girl with a disturbing demeanour.

The Yankee twang is here on songs like Secret Room but the music is not soaked in doomy synths. The lyrics are nonsense as usual and there is an odd array of instrumentation but it kind of shimmers and sparkles rather than sounding bleak such as on My Nigerian Friend. The instrumentals such as I Like Black are quite endearing. The lead guitar at times sounds well played, but its not Snakefinger.

Golden Guy sounds more like vintage Residents with its quirky lyrics with repeated phrases and nasal vox along with eerie sounds emanating. The mention of Elvis cements this sentiment as he has been a target of Residents since the beginning. The Bunny Boy is more gravelly singing over dissonant lead guitar and low synth tones. It develops into a heavier vibe with crashing drums and distorted guitars and then a pitchy reverberated voice chanting. The time sig changes and moves into an atonal anti-music passage.

Blood on the Bunny takes things to a more unsettling level, then I Killed Him comes in with driving guitar screeches and xylophone sounds, tinkering over the unusual vocals. The story is developing but its impossible to understand without prior knowledge or the DVD.

The Dark Man sounds like it's been lifted from one of the earlier Residents albums, apart from the clearer production. It's very bleak and repetitive, lots of tinkering, sustained synths, guttural singing and nonsensical narrations. Secret Message has a cool melody, deceptively sweet in nature for a while, then the squiggly sound and vocals enter throwing it off balance. Patmos is monotonous melodies and the album closes with growling sinister vocals on the deliriously nasty Black Behind; "everything is black!" What are they saying? Basically that everything is black; "there is nothing but the black behind, snaking, creeping, hiding in the shadows and waiting for the naïve, the unaware, the careless and those who aren't scared to be sucked into the black behind." The angelic choir at the end may signify that the boy found his brother in the blackness of death.

Overall a 3 star album that is way more accessible musically than usual, and still highly strange in terms of content and vocals. Not the place to start for this band but nevertheless a decent exploration of searching and the pain of loss.

HASH(0x8bd45fa8) out of 5 stars Wahh, it doesn't sound like Duck Stab, wahh. 18 Sept. 2008
By PAULIE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Buy or die with confidence that this is THE RESIDENTS bringing the goods once again. Great story, great writing, great imagery, great aural experience, but not for the uninitiated. This album is only a part of the whole project which also involves an internet video series and world tour - (Their website, originally edited out by Amazon) has much more info!

This sounds like THE RESIDENTS.
