CD Cover Naked for Jesus

Review by Darren Kerr

It's a wonderful day in the neighbourhood, a beautiful day in the neighbourhood. Won't you be my neighbour?

We're gonna talk about some nice things today, namely Naked for Jesus. Can you say that, boys and girls? Nay-ked forrr Jee-zuz. I'm not sure, but I think that they came from that nice crop of Lunatic Fringe type hair farmer bands. It wouldn't surprise me if they changed to this new ex-pair-e-mental rock outlook as soon as the grunge backlash went into full effect. But now don't you bag on Mr. Rotters if he's wrong, kiddies, he hasn't had his nice medication yet today.

Anyway, this new ex-pair-e-mental format basically means that the guitars have chorus and delay up the ying-yang. Can you say that, boys and girls? Ying, yang. Usually delay effects send tingles to Mr. Rotter's squishy parts, but Naked for Jesus' guitarists employ it in every song all the time. But if you can get past that, you'll find that "Doom," at least, is a good song with a catchy chorus.

I can't fault Naked for Jesus for trying something new, and this EP does actually hold up through the four songs. But, boys and girls, let's hope they ease up on the delay and do something with their newfound sound.
