The record's title is a dim-witted play on Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy, but the only thing "classic" about this rock is that it looks to the band's greatest commercial success in hopes of reviving some past glories. Conveniently, there's another Bush in office and the samples of Dubya droning on about some bullshit in "No W" are almost interchangeable with his daddy's voice in "N.W.O." from Psalm 69. But here the political baggage is bursting from the seams.
"Psalm 32" cartoonishly invokes the fury of "Psalm 69," but packs half the punch. "WTV" rehashes the ever-annoying "TV Song," and "Warp City" is the poor man's "Jesus Built My Hotrod." "Worm" is an uncharacteristic moment of brilliance, dropping the intensity and the political charade, but it's too little, too late. Mole desperately retraces Psalm 69's footsteps but forgets that giving listeners a taste of its political agenda is way more effective than cramming it down their throats.
Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
