Review of Scouting for Girls

Travesty.

Choose file... or enter url:
This is not only one of the WORST albums of recent times, but clearly also one of the WORST bands to secure a record deal so far in the 21st century. The word 'worst' is perhaps overused in reviews, but I want to emphasise it here, I'm not lying when I say that this is the worst album I've heard this century.

I have a reputation for having a pretentious music taste, but I still keep up with the flood of generic indie bands that graces the radio in Britain. 'Scouting for girls' are the only one I can ever remember inciting feelings of raw rage and anger because of their lacklustre sound and completely bland and uninspired lyrics. Even my dad, a Phil Collins fan, pointed this out. Let's take a look at how he came to the conclusion by analysing the lyrics to their last two singles:

Song: She's so lovely
Lyrics: "She's so lovely
She's so lovely
She's so lovely
She's so lovely
She's so lovely
She's so lovely
She's so lovely
She's so loverrrly"

Song: Elvis Aint Dead
Lyrics: "Elvis isn't dead
Elvis isn't dead
Elvis isn't dead, coz I heard him on the radio
Elvis isn't dead
Elvis isn't dead
Elvis isn't dead, coz I heard him on the Radio.

I mean I know it's easter and all but I have to take his name in vain - Jesus Christ. If you really like this band and if you've ever made a conscious effort to listen to (or even BUY!!) one of their albums/songs, then you are a horrible horrible person and an insult to the entire sense of hearing. In fact you're probably deaf and your ears are rotten nubs of dead flesh.

Dont forget their song 'James Bond':

I've a license, I've a license, I've a license to thrill.
I've a license, I've a license, I've a license to kill.
I've a license, I've a license, I've a license to thrill.
I've a license, I've a license, I've a license to kill.


and their song Keep on walking:

I keep on walking til the sun comes up.
I keep on walking til the sun comes up.
I keep on walking til the sun comes up.
I keep on walking til the sun comes up.

Oh and their song 'Heartbeat':

I do love, she does heartbreak.
I did love, till she broke my heart.
I do love, she does heartbreak.
I did love, till she broke my heart.
I do love, she does heartbreak.
I did love, till she broke my heart.
I do love, she does heartbreak.
I did love, till she broke my heart.

and 'It's not about you':

I guess we got, i guess we got
i guess we got nothing to say
I guess we got, i guess we got
i guess we got(nothing to say)

and 'It's not about you'
I guess we got, i guess we got
i guess we got nothing to say
I guess we got, i guess we got
i guess we got(nothing to say)
and 'It's not about you'
I guess we got, i guess we got
i guess we got nothing to say
I guess we got, i guess we got
i guess we got(nothing to say)

I wish I could vote for this review twice.

Thanks for the lyrical reminders, who said repetition was the best form of learning, I make anactive attempt to forget this vapid tripe. Truly music for the unevolved!
