Music  carries many different meanings; some people prefer country, while  others prefer rock. However, I am not sure there are words to describe  Insane Clown Posse’s newest album <em>Bang! Pow! Boom!</em>, which  surprisingly is not part of a cereal’s slogan.

The album  exhibits many genres of music, from rap to rock, and then a double-shot  of downright awful. This album is already in the running for worst album  of the year in my opinion, and it’s only the beginning of April.

The  album starts off with a track of a demonic-sounding voice talking about  someone coming to perform a cleansing. The third track, “In Yo Face,”  includes thought provoking and clever lyrics such as, “Phonies out there  posing as Juggalos/But see it as a demographic to push what-have-it/In  yo face!” They do, however, let the listener know that they are  delivering “something special for you” and that “they have you covered,  homie.” Apparently, they went to the cemetery and resurrected the word  “homie” from 2001.

If I had to pick one good song on the album, I  couldn’t. It is terrible from start to finish. The beats are amateur  and at times have absolutely zero rhythm to them. The lyrics sound like a  sixth-grader just figured out he could curse and is throwing out as  many words as possible to impress his friends. Half of them make no  sense at all and the other half are just self-indulgent. Rapper Shaggy  does throw a shout out to his mother and thanks her for his time on the  Earth. You have to give credit to a guy for knowing his roots.

Overall,  <em>Bang! Pow! Boom!</em> is just a terrible album. It isn’t even one of  those records where it’s so bad it’s good. Don’t waste your money, and  don’t buy this album. If you do, you will wish that the song “Imma Kill  You” carried a little truth in advertising.
