Andrew W.K. has a mission--to dirty up rock & roll, literally and figuratively. And while that may seem a sizeable task for one man to shoulder, consider that the Michigan-reared screamer has devoted the whole of his debut album I Get Wet to ecstatic celebration of the id. It's a heck of an idea, and it's brought W.K. the fawning adoration of the British press who, after enduring years of ambient art-rock inspired by paranoia about technology (you know who we mean), are rushing to embrace W.K.'s credo that everyone should party till they puke. W.K. stays on theme throughout I Get Wet's 12 frenetic tracks--song titles like the aforementioned "Puke," "It's Time to Party," "Party Hard," and "Fun Night" pretty much make the point. But W.K.'s more-is-more approach holds true of the music too--it's cheesy new wave meets spiky metal but delivered with such self-conscious force that it's almost bubblegum. Think of the gargantuan riffs of "Detroit Rock City" smeared with Flock of Seagulls-style synth while some manic propagandist hollers himself hoarse over top. I Get Wet has one setting--loud--but not since the Stooges has unmitigated hedonism, and just plain headbanging, seemed like a plan. Mighty members of the three-finger devil salute fraternity, your soundtrack has arrived. --Kim Hughes

I first heard Andrew WK when I saw him/them on Saturday Night Live. They were so loud, so obnoxious, so in-your-face, so juvenile, and so absolutely, unapologetically over the top that I was blown away. The CD is a winner; every song is great, which is not surprising given that it's basically the same song repeated over and over. The style is fascinating; it's basically a combination of punk rock, Phil-Spectorish walls of sound, and 80s arena rock played at ear-splitting volumes. It sounds like there's about twenty guitars pounding out the same three chords at the same time, and as if that's not enough, there's heavy keyboards layered over every track, also pounding out the same three chords. Lyrically, it's pretty simplistic; I don't think any band since AC/DC has so unabashedly celebrated the delights of procreation, pugilism, and partying like this band. The music is simplistic too; in fact, it's so simplistic it makes Motorhead sound like chamber music. But none of that matters, because if this album doesn't make you bang your head within a maximum of three seconds, you either hate rock and roll or you're clinically dead. Five stars? Heck, I'd give this ten stars. Go out and buy the CD right now, and while you're at it, pick up a case of beer. You'll need it.

This c.d. is totally awesome.I've been constantly listening to this c.d. for over a month now,as it's just so pulsating with excitement and thrills that it will blow your socks off!On this side of the Atlantic it has been getting a mixture of rave reviews or some more serious hacks make it out to be some sort of bad joke.To describe his music you have to take a trip back to the mid 80's when loud heavy rock music was filled with fun,certainly wasn't meant to be taken very seriously and was the perfect way to kickstart all parties.This is the greatest thing about his music for me,as it's such a welcome break from all the doom and self-gratifying gloom of groups like Staind and Creed.At first I was majorly shocked when I heard this it.It sounded like a cross between Billy Idol,Def Leppard and Meat Loaf-talk about bad taste!But it works so well.Each track is laden with enormous guitars,heavy fast furious drumming,mid 80's synths and out front W.K.'s gruff and grunted vocals.In fact the keyboards are so grandiose that it keeps each track pumping with pure energy.Each track seems to grow from one catchy riff to the next,so it's very accessible.Catchy verse,catchy bridge and an even catchier chorus.The lyrics are so good in that they are completely daft and are just on about being positive and having a good time.On his debut c.d. the word party is mentioned in the title of 3 songs.All of his songs are over almost before they've really started which means you're not very likely to get bored with them.Thankfully the one aspect of 80's rock that he has left out are the ever predictable guitar solo's.If I did have one fault it would be that many of the songs sound very similar-there isn't a slushy ballad in sight here,which I suppose is a good thing.
The c.d.

This album isn't what you'd think. You hear a name such as Andrew W.K., and you think, "Oh great, another boy band.", but oh, how you are wrong.
Andrew W.K is a fresh 80's style metal band that is just breaking out. Their CD, "I Get Wet", was released March 26, 2002 in the US. It was released earlier in the UK since the band played more shows there first.
The band is headed by Andrew W.K. himself. Not only does he do lead vocals, but all the songs on the album were written by himself on a piano. He writes, sings, and PLAYS piano and keyboards on this album. He's backed up by guitarists Jimmy Coup, "E. Pain", and "Sgt. Frank"; bassist Gregg; and drummer D.T. Nonetheless a colorful crowd of indiviuals.
The music on the CD isn't very diverse. Nor are the lyrics. They stick to cliched 80's metal riffs, however, a new 'hard edge' voice is put over it, creating a sound SUPRISINGLY not created by any other notable artist. The lyrics don't stray away from the 80's at all either. All about partying, girls, and drugs. Minus the drugs, and for the most part, girls. This CD really only tries to get across one message, 'Party, party the hardest, and never stop'.
The catchy lyrics and riffs are best displayed in tracks such as "Party Hard" and "I Love NYC". However, they stray away a BIT from the party theme on tracks "She is Beautiful" and "Ready To Die". These two tracks are just as catchy as others on the album, and rock all the way. They even incorporate some sounds that you might find in a Super Nintendo game, and trust me, they work.
As said, the CD is very catchy in the lyrics and riffs. If you listen to it while you drive, or when you're 'partying hard', then you'll probably keep listening to it.

this is not just a "party cd"

yeah, it mentions parties in a few of the songs, but you once you understand the Andrew W.K. persona, you understand that it just doesn't apply to parties, it applies to life

this cd has certainly changed the way i look at things

positive music with an upbeat metallish-punkish-synthish-pianoish overbeat

i can't explain the joy of owning this cd

i myself have three copies of it, purchasing each one more exciting than the last

life is the party!
