The Lonely Island - Incredibad (2009)

Reason for Listening:
I was listening to some of their tracks on YouTube and figured I should listen to one of their albums.

Released 20090210.
19 songs. 42:10. Incredibad (2009)
First listen.
Haha. "That's right, mother@#*%er." ("Santana DVX")
"I'm On A Boat" is definitely better than "Jizz In My Pants"; enough to move the latter from a "3" to a "2".
Haha. Is there something about the name "Steve"? ("We Like Sportz")

3: "I'm On A Boat" (ft. T-Pain); "Like A Boss";
2: "Jizz In My Pants"; "Boombox" (ft. Julian Casablancas); "We Like Sportz"; "Dick In A Box" (ft. Justin Timberlake); "Natalie's Rap" (ft. Natalie Portman and Chris Parnell); "Incredibad";
1: "Who Said We're Wack?" (Intro); "Santana DVX" (ft. E-40); "Dreamgirl" (ft. Norah Jones); "Space Olympics";
0: "Sax Man" (ft. Jack Black); "Lazy Sunday" (ft. Chris Parnell); "Normal Guy - Interlude" (Skit); "Shrooms - Interlude" (Skit); "Ras Trent"; "The Old Saloon" (Skit); "Punch You In The Jeans";

Having seen many of these on YouTube on multiple occasions, it's a little hard to think of them as just tracks on an album. In contrast, I typically haven't seen the musical video for the majority of music I've heard in my life. Overall, the previous visual experiences is a strong boost in liking many of the tracks more than others. Of course, there are some minor differences (e.g., the music video for "I'm On A Boat" includes a little comedic start and that for "Like A Boss" features Seth Rogen as the interviewer).

Overall Rating: 4.4/5
Favorite Song: "Like A Boss"
