Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2008-07-22
Silly pop, sarcastic, employing samples, sequencers, guitar etc. Male vocals. Everything is a song (no sample art per se).

1) Richard Nixon samples, midpaced epic sounding
chamber pop sorta
2) “I wish that I could kiss your ass” (is this FCC okay?) in the chorus, with silly electronic pop
3) folky pop with slow phrased ridiculous lyrics
4) 80’s Michael Jackson sorta pop with radio call-in samples
5) upbeat pop, silly again
6) slow waltzing sway pop
7) song about milk with advertising samples about milk, bit of a western rhythmic feel
8) tribal feel with indiscernible samples
9) looped western slide guitar, excellent, twisted western about bad relationship
10)noisey electroclashy
11) slow waltz, almost a Christmas carol feel about this with background chorul vocs, freaks out at end
12) dark noisey layered but with a mid paced rhythm, completely shifts about one minute in with silly pop feel
13) instrumental, mid paced near industrial feel, slightly funky electro
14) urgent upbeat with spooky slow phrased lyrics
15) slower, somewhat lewd but not really, just weird
16) instrumental, electro pop feel if minor keyed
17) FCCs
