Review: Papa Crow - WHAT WAS THAT SOUND?

Written by

Papa Crow"This is absolutely horrible - I'm about to turn it off," declared my wife as the family hit the half-way mark on "Fart Like A Pirate," the first track on WHAT WAS THAT SOUND?, the five-song "Mini-Album" by PAPA CROW. A quintet of toot-tastic songs dedicated to the art of flatulence (the back of the CD sleeve actually says, "Mini Album #1: Fart Songs!"), perhaps the intent of Crow was to humor the mind of a seven-year-old boy, because the laughs were lost on me.

As a 36-year-old that often finds a chuckle in some pretty vulgar and "offensive" locations, it's not to say that I don't find a good ripper worth a laugh... but these songs just aren't funny

WHAT'S THAT SOUND? is a disappointing offering from an artist that normally produces some pretty fantastic songs. Like this one, from his 2011 release, THINGS THAT ROAR...

It's times like this when I feel bad about being honest, but unfortunately, this "Mini-Album" stinks just as bad as one of "Uncle Terry's Farts" (that's the closing track).
