Editorial Reviews

A new release from Philadelphia's classic punk jokers, the Dead Milkmen! Their first in 15 years! Lots of great, melodic punk pop songs with their patented hilarious lyrics, plus some songs that touch on darker subjects. Back and at their best.

Format: MP3 Music
Dead Milkmen fans had been waiting 15 years, but a new album is finally here. One of the best in their glorious catalog. Most of the vocals are handled by Rodney with a few by Jack thrown in. The opener (The King in Yellow / William Bloat) is one of the greatest songs ever recorded. I saw a You Tube video of the song a long time ago and couldn't wait to get an actual copy of it. "Commodify Your Dissent" is a great song about how everything radical and cool will eventually be watered down and something to ignore - taking particular aim at Country Music and Rap. "Meaningless Upbeat Happy Song" is just a quick, hilarious song about how anyone living in this world today who is 100% happy must be insane.
It's been nearly 30 years since Big Lizard, so don't expect the new songs to fit in on that album. I want to say the music is more "mature," but I don't know if that's the correct term. They continue to grow as musicians, and they put out great album after great album. You can usually tell which album a song belongs to because their style keeps evolving, which is something I love to see in bands.
Definitely one of the best albums that they've released - and they have an entire list of awesome albums...

A girl in my geometry class in high school introduced me to Big Lizard back in 85, and I have been crazy about them ever since.

After all these years, they haven't missed a step with The King In Yellow. I'm on my second listen, and "Can't Relax" is the standout track for me so far.

Damn, I haven't seen them perform since the early 90s, and now I'm dying to make a show again.

If you were upset with Soul Rotation, you'll be glad to hear that after all these years, the Dead Milkmen have come back on the scene like a Nitro Burnin' Funny car outa hell.

Fun mini-stories, sarcasm, wit, and bad-yet-so-good singing combine to make you smile...assuming you are odd enough to have ordered the CD in the first place and knew what you might be in for....

How did we survive all those years in between without the sardonic social commentary of the Dead Milkmen?

Glad to see they're still keeping true to form. The songs are great, relevant, and most of all...welcome back! I hope a 2012 tour is in the works.

Dave Blood is certainly missed, and kudos to the band for helping to keep his memory alive for the fans. Given the circumstances it's kind of amazing they can keep a sense of humor with all the grim subject matter.

Still, I give the recording a slight "less than perfect" knock because one of the cymbals Dean Clean uses throughout the album delivers a ringing feedback-type sound that makes my ears hurt. It took me quite a while to even figure out what it was causing it. A little bit of mixing up in the treble goes a long, long way. Another "less than perfect" note is that...well, they are a lot older and they are starting to sound it. But that's punk, baby.

Norah Jones would approve.

Two listens already hooked. I hope these guys make a video for Caitlyn Childs arguably the best song but as always they are always all good. I watched a video on the deadmilkmen web site and Joe said maybe they would. Well if they don't the sad fact is so many people only know these guys for the song "Punk Rock Girl" which means they are missing 137 other great studio achievements in recorded history of music which means you heard one song but missed 137 others. My father is from philly, his parents and their parents where the ones who came here from Germany and one from Russia. My Mom's side on the other hand is all New Jersey but she grew up in Ambler,(North Philly). The great fast aggressive fun band F.O.D. is from there (check them out)(Hate Rock is a great album) (mislabelled,nothing hateful). Anyway, Dandrew did a great job picking up the bass after Dave. Dave blood had a P.H.D. in Serbian clergy and when NATO invaded Serbia in 1999 he was forced back to Philly. He could only get a job as a janitor and got depressed and committed suicide. Sad story, but this album proves there can be life after death and its quite an achievement at that as always. Flows smooth, and everythings done perfectly connected as always with the Deadmilkmen. In a genre all of their own and nobody has gotten remotely close except maybe Primus. Primus goes more with Fugazi and I think the Deadmilkmen just constantly flow and are not so broken up with breakdowns where Primus and Fugazi break it up and break it down with Primus being a little more obviously funny where Fugazi is funny but serious and it takes a while to get the ironical humor. Deadmilkmen have always been straight forward demented humor that tends to evoke a smile from the most stringent. I hope they can still crank more albums in the future.Read more ›
