4.0 out of 5 stars Great Comedy Album but NEEDS the DVD Sept. 25 2011
Format:Audio CD
Turtleneck & Chain is a fantastic comedy album that overcomes the terrible production values afflicted by other comedy artists (anything by Weird Al) while also delivering tons of laughs. Most of the songs are premise based songs which don't attempt any specific punchlines, but relish the absurd. It's a good thing. The best thing about T&C is that the beats are on par or better than most mainstream hip hop out today, and all the guest spots are incredibly well done.

The one caveat to this is that some of the songs don't really work without the videos. Shy Ronnie 2 doesn't necessarily fall flat without the video but it's much funnier with video and is kept afloat by Rihanna and uptempo beat.

Any comedy rap fans needs this NOW!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Gets old fast July 5 2011
Format:Audio CD
It's good for what it is but it's completely forgettable in the end. Let's start with what works I enjoyed the following: I Just Had Sex, Jack Sparrow, Motherlover and kind of liked The Creep. If you noticed that these all have guest appearances then gold star for you, the guests in these songs are Akon, Michael Bolton, Justin Timberlake and Nicki Minaj. The rest well I don't hate them there's simply no reason to play them over and over again.

It does come with a DVD with the music videos/SNL sketches on them but like the cd it's just not that great and Reba in particular is just terrible. You know the Lonely Island and you know what you are getting just don't expect anything like I'm On A Boat or Like A Boss. Oh yeah and the first album is better if you don't own it and want to purchase The Lonely Island.

4.0 out of 5 stars A review of The Lonely Island's "Turtleneck & Chain" May 10 2011
By Paul M. Guyet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First off, these three guys are hilarious and, in my eyes, the reason people still bother to watch SNL.
I'll gladly go even further to say that they've saved SNL.
Now, that said, the second Lonely Island album, Turtleneck & Chain, is not as good as the first.
In a nutshell, the first album had more tracks that didn't need to rely on the accompanying video to get the joke across, the song itself was finny enough and was enhanced by the video.
While there are a few songs on Turtleneck & Chain that are just great without seeing the joke (like the opener 'We're Back!', 'I Just Had Sex' and 'Motherlover'), the majority of the others ('Shy Ronnie 2', 'Threw It On The Ground', 'The Creep', 'Japan') that are practically incomplete without a visual component.
There are even a couple of tracks that need video to make them anything more than filler, like 'Rocky' and 'Attracted to Us' (probably the worst use of Beck ever. When you have the guy who created Midnite Vultures at your disposal, wring him dry).
I'd like to make clear that this isn't bad, just not as great as the first. We're not talking dropping from an A- to a D or anything, maybe just a B. There are some moments of pure gold like 'Jack Sparrow', which features Michael Bolton doing what all "serious artists" should do and jumping into the world of Lonely Island, feet first, and, the above-mentioned 'Motherlover', both songs that are excellent to begin with and are just improved upon by their ridiculously funny videos.
On its own, Turtleneck & Chain is a good album and only loses its luster when put next to their first.
Luckily, for those who feel like the wait wasn't worth it, you can go to Lonely Island's official web site and watch all their videos, any time you want.
Heck, I have a funny feeling you might even be able to obtain one or two of these songs and videos you like so much that didn't make it on either album some other, less legal way.
Just call it a feeling.
Anyway, while Turtleneck & Chain is a solid, well-made, funny work, there's really nothing on it that can compare to 'Natalie's Rap' from their first album.
Whatever the case, I recommend you buy both their albums, as their doing God's work and reminding the masses that "real" rap can be just as silly as their brand of fake rap.
Sometimes more so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creeping its way into your heart... May 11 2011
By Aaron McNeal - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I imagine there are two groups of people who are looking to purchase this album, fans of the first album Incredibad or those new to the Lonely Island game and are interested in humorous music. To the first crowd, welcome back to hilarious tracks to blast through your car speakers with your windows down during rush hour (you awesome jerks). The second crowd, be warned and so some research. A fair number of jokes are of the toilet/offensive variety and you can watch some of their music videos on Youtube first to see if that bothers you.

However, if you like what you hear/see, I believe you can do no wrong supporting these guys. Catchy songs like "I Just Had Sex", "Jack Sparrow", "Turtleneck and Chain" and "The Creep" are bound to be considered classics from this second outing. While it's yet to be seen if we have another "I'm On A Boat" on our hands, the Lonely Island's fake rap remains very entertaining and worth five light beers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some funny moments, but not nearly as awesome as Incredibad. Aug. 17 2011
By Peter Faden - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Like i said, it had some funny moments for sure, but this album was not nearly as funny as their first. It just didnt have the flow or the feel of the first album, the songs weren't as good overall, and it wasnt even close to being as funny. It's not horrible, and there are some particularly funny tracks, but they represent around half of the total package IMO. Additionally, some of the songs really need the accompanying video to really make it funny. You kind of need to see Andy throwing a hotdog on the ground to appreciate just how funny that particular song is, for example.
Anyway, not bad, not great. I give it a middling 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music that happens to be funny May 12 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Like Incredibad [CD/DVD], this is more than just a comedy album. It is music that is entertaining to listen to that happens to be written by brilliant comedy writers. I could easily imagine non-english-speaking people listening to (most of) these songs and not realizing there were jokes to be had. The songs are all very well produced and the guest musicians really bring their A-game (especially Timberlake).
I still listen to Incredibad now and then (2 years later) and I expect I'll still be enjoying this a few years in the future. Money well spent.
I'd also like to point out that buying MP3s from amazon is fantastic... if you haven't tried it yet, now is a good time to start. The Cloud Drive is just icing on the cake.

5.0 out of 5 stars They're back! With another hilarious album! May 13 2011
By Monty Moonlight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When you first listen to The Lonely Island's second album, "Turtleneck & Chain", you might think, "This has got a few good songs, but it's no 'Incredibad'." Well, give it time. As I recall, it took a while before I loved EVERYTHING on Incredibad, and the more I listen to Turtleneck and Chain, the more I fall in love with it. I won't declare that it's JUST AS GOOD as Incredibad, but if it isn't, it's really freakin' close.

Like Incredibad, the CD release of Turtleneck and Chain also comes with a DVD featuring some of the videos for the songs on the album and for some songs that AREN'T on the album for whatever reason. Here's my response to the contents of both:

1. We're Back!: A silly but entertaining opening to the album. Not the best thing here by any means.
2. Mama: Hilarious, though this is more of a comedy skit than a song. Well, it's a song that cuts in and out with interruptions.
3. I Just Had Sex: Similar to "I'm On A Boat" from Incredibad, but not in any sort of negative, retreading way. It's very funny as its own song. I definitely will be playing this after I finally have sex.
4. Jack Sparrow: This song is the jewel of the album. It is HILARIOUS! However, I have to admit that I saw the video before hearing the album, and that adds so much more to the enjoyment of it, I'm sure. Unfortunately, the fantastic video is not included on the DVD! It's an outrageous, much like the way Incredibad lacked the priceless Natalie's Rap and I'm On A Boat videos. However, I'm sure the song "Jack Sparrow" is hilarious even if you haven't seen the video (but look it up on YouTube anyway, the featured performer, Michael Bolton, is HILARIOUS in it).
5. Attracted To Us: Funny stuff. I'm not sure what the message is here exactly, but it's funny.
6. Rocky: Classic, oldschool story-rap, like something from Beastie Boys or Will Smith, ha.
7. My Mic: Funny, brief bit. It's the Bullwinkle impression that makes this one good.
8. Turtleneck & Chain: This one is the title song, yet frankly, it might be my least favorite on the disc.
9. Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde: Okay, this is an interesting one. It's good and Rihanna sounds hot here and all that, but the problem with Shy Ronnie is this: One, this is Shy Ronnie 2, but where's Shy Ronnie 1? Turns out, there's a video for it, so maybe it aired on Saturday Night Live and I missed it, but it wasn't on the previous Album. It's a funny bit, but it shouldn't be on an album, and neither should Shy Ronnie 2. The problem? It requires the video to be funny. Luckily, it IS included on the DVD, but they should have left it off the CD and put something else here, like "We'll Kill You", a sort of sequel to "We Like Sports" from Incredibad.
10. Trouble on Dookie Island: This one is total Beastie Boys style, which is cool, because I love Beastie Boys, ha.
11. Falcor vs. Atreyu: A brief comedy bit for us nostalgic 80's kids.
12. Motherlover: Justin Timberlake comes back for this hilarious Mother's Day themed sequel to "Dick in a Box". This is another of the best songs on the album, and like with Dick in a Box, having seen the video (included) really adds to it, but it's not necessary at all. The song is funny enough on its own.
13. The Creep: This is another of the best songs here, but as with Jack Sparrow, I saw the video before hearing the song, and that probably made it even better, because the video is great. Luckily, this video is included on the DVD.
14. Watch Me Do Me: This brief comedy bit isn't that great, but it's funny that it tricks you into thinking it is going to be another song at first.
15. Threw It On the Ground: This one, in my opinion, works much better as a video only, but if you've seen the video, then it's funny to hear.
16. Japan: The thing that instantly grabs me and pulls me into this hilarious song is the opening, which sounds like one of these guys has got to have seen "Big Bird in Japan" and is doing his impression of the bird himself. It cracks me up and freaks me out too, every time (he sounds exactly like Bird, it HAS to be intentional).
17. After Party: This song is not among the funniest on the album, but it's okay and Santigold really adds to the whole sound of it).
18. No Homo: This one is weird, ha, but pretty funny.
19. No Homo Outro: A brief twist on the same song.

1. We're Back!: Well, like I said, this isn't one of my faves, but having video adds to it a bit.
2. I Just Had Sex: Funny video with some sexy special guests.
3. The Creep: This twisted video for a twisted song is a hilarious feast for the eyes featuring John Waters and Nicki Minaj.
4. Motherlover: This sequel to Dick in a Box is HILARIOUS. Special guest moms in this one.
5. Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie and Clyde: Works better as a video, I must say.
6. Threw It On the Ground: Likewise here, more special guests too.
7. We'll Kill You: Funny stuff. This is a sequel to "We Like Sports", and it's just as funny in the same way.
8. Reba: Kenan Thompson as Reba makes this weird video pretty hilarious.
9. Great Day: Andy as a cokehead. Funny stuff.

So, that's everything in this two disc release from The Lonely Island. It's a fine follow up to Incredibad, I'd say, with the likes of "Jack Sparrow", "The Creep", "I Just Had Sex", and "Motherlover" all being especially brilliant, and lots of other stuff that'll make you laugh out loud too. The videos are great, though not including "Jack Sparrow" really sucks. At least you'd think the later albums' DVDs would include what was left off the previous ones, but still no sign of "Natalie's Rap" or "I'm on a Boat". I hope a full Lonely Island music videos DVD release will be forthcoming. Really, the Jack Sparrow video is one of the funniest things you'll ever see. Anyway, I highly recommend this island and Incredibad as well if you don't already have it. You don't even have to be a fan of rap, hip hop, techno, or whatever types of music this stuff falls under. The only rap I was ever a fan of was "The Beastie Boys", but this stuff is perfect for someone who likes them, though keep in mind that this is pure comedy. Another epic win for The Lonely Island!
