Format: MP3 Music
Famed for their rotating lineup of mad scientists and their frenetic live shows, The COG has been active in and around their native New Orleans for nearly 15 years. Fronted by its megalomaniacal founder Dr. Milo Thaddeus Pinkerton III, The Consortium of Genius has been spreading both mayhem and the good word of nerd music throughout its collective career. On 2010's Music for Supervillains, however, the crew dropped all pretext that their music was somehow intended for the consumption of proper ladies and gentlemen. A love letter to the b-movie culture that inspires it, it is an album that unapologetically reps the music-loving malcontents that are The COG's core constituents.

The project kicks off with an introduction from Milo before segueing directly into the phenomenal Cheap Trick-style power pop of "I Think Therefore I Rock." From there the disc alternately presents hot new tracks and related bridging skits that paint the work as a proper concept album, complete with an overarching story concerning The COG's continued plans for world domination.

The interludes themselves are intentionally cheesy and over-acted, playing up the band's comical leanings. But even as they serve to aid the album's overall cohesion they do occasionally distract from the power of the music itself. Still, as laughable as the plot (and the character accents) may be, the skit-to-song-setup usually succeeds. "Chapter 1," for example, introduces Milo's sister Dr. Formelda Hyde-Pinkerton, and its follow-up track "Lab Coat" is a jazzy number that showcases her sultry vocals. Likewise "Chapter 2' sets the stage for '80s throwback "Evil is Fun" and so on.

Amid a tale of an experimental zombie serum and a malevolent double-cross, fans new and old are treated to The COG's trademark genre-hopping.
