Editorial Reviews

With THE BUNNY BOY, The Residents have created another off beat pop gem. A sonic roller coaster in the style of Duck Stab, The Commercial Album and Demons Dance Alone, the album features 19 fast paced songs. Obsession, insanity and the coming Apocalypse have never sounded better. The THE BUNNY BOY'S release will be accompanied by a world tour and a narrative internet series.

This album is a great listen. It is definitely not without it's element of creepiness that comes standard with any Residents' release. Without explaining the storyline let me just say that this album is among their better stuff. It is UNCANNY how perfectly this cd matches up with The Wizard of Oz. Like seriously! I had never done the Dark Side of the Moon thing so A friend asked If I wanted to and much like I suspected (after like 3 songs) it did NOT impress me. However, my friend wanted to hear the Bunny Boy so I suggested we play it alongside Wizard of OZ and Holy Sh** It matched up to the T. It's almost like they timed the album to match up to certain parts. It was hilarious!!! It definitely gives the actions a stranger feel. Also makes me want to sync up other Residents' albums to that movie. Match it up to the 2nd Lion roar and you'll be in business. Trust me if you want a good laugh!! But yeah a good listen as well.

I just purchased this album by The Residents.

As usual with anything put out by The Residents, one cannot just casually listen to it and get all the dark nuances and disturbing messages hidden within it. One must "eat" the album and digest it to truly appreciate the Residents dark, Edgar Allen Poe like art.

For instance, recently I purchased the Residents' Animal Lover from Amazon. Upon first listening to it I was disappointed, that it didn't quite meet my expectations earlier encountered by such Residential classics like "The Commercial Album,' "Duckstab," and "God in 3 Persons." Yet upon repeated listening and digesting the album "Animal Lover," my opinion of it changed drastically!

This is their latest work. (2009) For an ensemble that has been around now for over 35 years, they haven't lost their dark roots or their atonal qualities of mixing sharps and flats in a way that can turn "Ava Maria" into funeral music!

"The Bunny Boy" is a bunch of downbeat songs about life and dying and whatever else springs into the minds of these nutters. The accompanying internet interaction and DVD would be helpful to comprehend what this is all about but it is hard to locate these days so we are stuck with just the audio and it is baffling but bedazzling at the same time. The story involves the search for a brother who has mysteriously disappeared. The Residents are always going to surprise with their unique brand of music. This album certainly has its fair share of bizarre moments but is a much more polished production with some music that actually is well played, not sounding like a kid banging on a xylophone or out of tune guitars competing with dissonant synths, and nasally Louisianan twang in the singing and a ton of repetitive chanting. This is perhaps a more accessible album as those are the normal attributes of a Resident's project and they are for the most part absent here.

It opens with Boxes of Armageddon that draws us into the enigmatic atmosphere of bleak ravings set to music. I'm Not Crazy is ironic as I always thought they were, and Pictures From a Little Girl has a little girl with a disturbing demeanour.

The Yankee twang is here on songs like Secret Room but the music is not soaked in doomy synths. The lyrics are nonsense as usual and there is an odd array of instrumentation but it kind of shimmers and sparkles rather than sounding bleak such as on My Nigerian Friend. The instrumentals such as I Like Black are quite endearing. The lead guitar at times sounds well played, but its not Snakefinger.

Golden Guy sounds more like vintage Residents with its quirky lyrics with repeated phrases and nasal vox along with eerie sounds emanating.
