Quantcast

wackalbumOn their third full-length outing, Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer, and Jorma Taccone - collectively known as THE LONELY ISLAND - break out the jams for a rap album that's hardly wack, despite being called THE WACK ALBUM. As a follow-up to their previous albums, 2009's INCREDIBAD and 2011's TURTLENECK & CHAIN (both of which I own) THE WACK ALBUM is just as good (if not better in places) on a comedic front, but it opens up a weird situation in which THE LONELY ISLAND almost sounds too legit. While being a send-up of current hip-hop, THE WACK ALBUM is easily on-par production-wise with the best of who they're lovingly taking shots at, and the delivery is just so serious that you could picture these guys busting out some non-funny rhymes at some point in the near future.
