AC - _I Like It When You Die_
(Earache, 1997)
by: Brian Meloon (4 out of 10)
AC return with yet another CD, this time featuring 52 songs which fill up just over 42 minutes. Unfortunately, this isn't quite as varied as _40 More Reasons To Hate Us_ (see CoC #10), and therefore not as good. In fact, very few of the songs stand out at all; most are the kind of short punk/grind songs with dumb/silly/homophobic (and unintelligible) lyrics we've come to expect from AC, and are virtually indistinguishable from each other. The few highlights include Seth's brilliant vocal stylings in "Just the Two Of Us" and "I'm in AC", the cover of "Hungry Hungry Hippos", the use of Chopin's "Funeral March" in "Jack Kevorkian is Cool", and the absolutely brilliant "311 Sucks" (which rips off "Down", and reflects a sentiment I couldn't agree with more). Other than those choice songs, there's not much on here that you haven't heard before. This is (of course) essential for AC fans, but if you already own an AC record, you can probably do without it.
