Slightly Miffed - _Puzzled?_
(Slightly Fishy Records, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
Once you get past the brilliant, funny, and time consuming packaging of England's Slightly Miffed debut CD _Puzzled?_ (not to mention their amazing website, http://www.miffed.com/) the music is quite funny and enjoyable as well. Slapstick humor, funny samples, and odd arrangements make up this debut album by the energetic four-piece. The music of the band can be best described as "Monty Python meets metal." Case in point, song titles like "Bingo", "Cheesefish", and "User Friendly". I know some of you are shaking your heads, but this is rather entertaining and interesting. While the band is talented enough to arrange and create the metallic riffs and other material, it is the jokes and humor that keeps this baby afloat. Original and funny, British metal just sat on a "Whoopie Cushion." Fourteen songs that'll make you laugh and bang your head at the same time. Weird but enjoyable.
