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
