The No Fun
Top Customer Reviews
I enjoy "Birth, School, Work, Death" quite a bit. The mini-guitar solo used during the chorus is catchy, and the crowd shouting sound in the chorus is used to good effect. "Cooler Heads" is another typical Local H just rocking out song. The Ramones cover of "I just..." is merely average. This may be due to the fact that I'm not really a big Ramones fan, so this song really isn't memorable to me.
"Fu&% Yeah, That Wide" is an entertaining song for a while, solely because of Scott just going nuts, but eventually it gets old. During a concert though, it's highly entertaining.
The only other disappointing this about this album is that the power of St. Clair's drumming just does not come through on this album. It didn't come through on "Here Comes the Zoo" either, and that's a shame. I've seen them play twice with St. Clair, and he is an animal on the drums. I can't believe they can take that kind of punishment, and that is what adds to Local H's appeal. They have a huge amount of power, but unfortunately the recording makes the drumming seem rather mute.
However, this is a good stop over point on the way to Local H's next full album, but it's probably not for casual fans.
1. No Fun - 5/5 - I had heard this song back in December when I saw Local H live; and therefore I greatly anticipated the release of The No Fun E.P. I don't know why they didn't entitle it "No Fxckin' Fun", because that seems to be the basis of the song. It's a very emotional song that holds some of the album's best lyrics. Oddly enough, it's (probably) only third best. Still great though.
2. President Forever - 5/5 - this just might be my favorite song on the album. The title leads you to believe it's a political song; and it's exactly that. Scott Lucas' lyrics let us know what he'd do if he was the President... forever. The lyrics are just so amazing that they seemingly take Local H's lyrical talents to a higher level. The excerpts about the First Lady and Iraq are awe-inspiring, in a manner of speaking.
3. Birth, School, Work, Death - 5/5 - although a cover song, the lyrics fit in perfectly with this CD's objective.Read more ›
