Editorial Reviews

Industrial jungle pussy punk. Need more of a description? Mindless Self-Indulgence is the most libidinous, original band you've ever seen, and Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy is unlike anything you've ever heard. Ever. Mindless Self Indulgence is a four-piece band of boys and girls from N.Y.C. who are notorious for their scandalously irreverent live shows. They released a tongue-in-cheek debut called Tight in April of '99 on their own record label, Uppity Cracker Records.

Wow, what a crazy ass record this is. I bought this CD purely on basis of the reviews i found here on Amazon. I was bored of what was out there and just looking for something different. It didn't have to be Rock/Rap/Soul/Indie.....just something different, any style. Well my friends I found it in this wondrous power packed record. The Album title alone grabbed my interest & so i gave it a listen. 'Dicks are for my friends' is one of the funniest, catchiest sing-along songs I've heard in the last 10 years. The whole album is full of subversive, nasty little lyrical snide-remarks & expletives which make no apologies to the listener. So you either go with it or not. I don't see any half-ways here. For me I find the whole album a refreshing blast of hot-air, bursting with the sort of attitude Punk pretended to have back in 77'. I cannot categorize their sound either. Let's see 'Jungle/Rap/Rock/Techno' - Ahhhh who cares. I'm 42 years old and I suppose I'm too lame to be listening to stuff like this but for me it's a drop of fresh air in amongst the dross that's out there right now. So check it out. Listen to some sound samples. The songs themselves probably aren't much longer than the sound samples. Short, sharp & fun. Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless April 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD when I was 14, after hearing a few songs off of Napster (remember that??). Shortly after the purchase I saw them live and this just reinforced my then- (and now) opinion of Mindless: they are an amazing band.

I recently broke this record out, seeing as it had been about a year since I'd given it a serious listen. Truth be told, I think I like them more NOW. This is probably in part because I'm older (18) and because I can now appreciate the punk rock nature of this band, something I gave no thought to at 14. At that tender, stupid age, I was completely and utterly entranced in the terrible, TERRIBLE nu-metal scene. Korn was my favorite band. I had terrible taste. I didn't even really know what punk rock was, let alone care that Mindless, while not having the generally accepted "punk" sound, is one of the few TRUE punk bands in existence today.

Do not listen to the idiot below...Mindless sounds nothing like Limp Bizkit (that would turn me off if I read something like that, and I want you to BUY this record, my dear reader). He is ignoring the punk rock influence (I really do hate to keep bring this up, but it needs to be said), which mostly comes out in the guitar riffs...listen close to those, by the way; you'll hear some rather intelligent and well-written stuff...

Mindless is a funny band, sure, but don't let people over-exaggerate; they are here to serve a purpose. Read the booklet: they don't want racists, homophobes, fundamentalists, or any other intolerant people to buy their records, wear their tee-shirts, or come to their shows...they thank culture revolutionists for raising the bar...they're sexually ambiguous...what I'm getting at is that MSI are here to challenge people.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album has me wrapped around its middle finger October 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you took some tapes by the Lords of Acid, Devo, Mr. Bungle, Danielle Dax and Carter U.S.M., chopped them into little bits and threw them around the room and glued them back together... you'd probably end up with a sticky mess of glue and tape that would be totally worthless.

But you'd still have a good time if you were listening to Mindless Self Indulgence's "Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy" while you did it.

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely fabulous March 24, 2000
By P. Dunn
Format:Audio CD
I'm an "older American" who LOVES this CD, but perhaps most people of my age would cringe away from the unusual electronic sound, which might be described as noise upon first listen, and the pretty raw lyrics. I'm here to tell you to listen again until you understand the point. Once you "get it" you'll be delighted by the silliness interlaced with social commentary. The intricate electronic bursts overlaid with live music are spectacular. Add Little Jimmy's vocalizations that move blithely and rapidly from trilling and caterwauling to bass/percussion pounding rap to lilting reggae to "scream-like-a-girl" and you have surprisingly organized, beautifully orchestrated/programmed MUSICAL noise. My favorites include most of the tracks, and are too numerous to mention here, but i would suggest paying special attention to Cocaine and Toupees, Golden i, Kill the Rock, Masturbates, Planet of the Apes, among others, as I found them to be particularly interesting, both musically and vocally. The band's ability to play over and around pre-programmed electronic music exhibits particular technical skill and it appears that Little Jimmy has chosen his back up band for its ability to add to the power and then get out of his way. They don't take themselves seriously and they don't expect us to either. They do, however, take their music seriously, and seem to be "virtual" geniuses at putting it all together. If you don't "get" the odd twists and turns in life and accept them with aplomb, you won't "get" this, either. You either get it or you don't. GET IT. PLAY IT LOUD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange, but still incredible March 11, 2002
By Matt
Format:Audio CD
A long time ago, one of my friends popped in this cd. I was mortified. They were strange. They were too damn processed. At that point in time, I was an Ozzy fan, so anything that didn't have a guitar solo in it just wouldn't do. As time went on, I advanced to liking other bands like Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, and of course, Mindless Self Indulgence.
The thing about these guys, is that if you ever see them live, which is a rare happening, you have an all new respect for them. Sure, some of this album can even be considered rap; however, the thing about MSI is that they don't sound like anyone else. Many bands try to do this, and they succeed in the sense of sounding different, but [stink]. These guys have something about them that draws you in. It's pretty much a given that if you are a fan of System Of A Down(particularly their first album) these guys will appeal to you. The vocal style is SIMILAR, not the same. Just think high pitched, and features weird ... noises. As for the music backing it up, well, it really depends on the song. The first track, "Backmaskwarning!" is kind of this mix between punk and techno. This is actually the one song that drew me into the album. Later tracks, like "Clarissa" and "Faggot" tend to stay in the same vein and feature a nicely distorted guitar behind them.
All in all, this album will most certainly be too strange for mainstream fans. There is no question, because the music is just that different. It's incredibly creative, and will more than likely take time to wear on you. Once it does, you will never be able to put it down.
