Kanary
Porno Church of the Ugly Man
Kanary


What's worse than bad generic sounding hip-hop metal? Mullet rock! That's right Mullet rock is back and this time it's the ladies' turn to make Camaro music. Before I opened the jewelbox of this ugh, gem, I looked at the cover. I usually do that just for information purposes. Name of the band, Kanary, so far so good. Name of the album, Porno Church of the Ugly Man, ugh oh. Someone's trying really hard to be clever. The artwork screams frustrated fashion designer. Then there was the band photo. Let's just say I saw fluorescent pink.

The real horror started when I pushed the play button. I'm sure a great deal of effort went into this album but it was effort that would have been better spent doing volunteer work to try to improve the community. For someone who seems to want to be a fashion designer vocalist/guitarist Leslie Kanary is woefully outdated musically, not even in a cool retro way. The flat production is boring. The lyrics are generic. Somewhere between Four Non Blondes and Heart is Kanary. This album is not the anti-Christ. It's the anti-Viagra. EJECT.
