3OH!3 are known for their cheeky, in-your-face use of profanity and sexual language, but also for just making it work so well. Since day one Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte have come with a parental advisory label, but we’re not complaining. It has been a couple of years since the release of their last album Omens and even longer since they’ve been the talk of the town but Night Sports is putting the boys back on the radar. Read on!
The album starts off with a chanting of 3OH!3. This mini chant is accompanied by an electronic track that works to rile up the listener. We know we’re listening to 3OH!3, but just to emphasize it more they tell us who they are. The album has all the elements you’d expect of a 3OH!3 album, the electronica, rap, and raw lyrics. Long gone are the days of an attempt to censor themselves in any way. Times have changed and there is no longer a need for censorship. The audience they are reaching won’t care and their fans already have a taste for their artistic talent.
The album has a club vibe to it and is danceable in every way. There’s some sort of pleasure that comes along with the singing along of the lyrics to the catchy tunes like in Mad at You. Their sultry singing and lyrics also establish a chill like atmosphere at the same time. You can rock out to the songs, but they also work for a background playlist for the days you just can’t do work in silence. There’s a song for everyone on this album. The electronic duo has stayed true to themselves and that makes for a great album. From Something to Remember, an inspirational anthem for the wild hearts, to BASMF, which is them just keeping it real and laying their thoughts out for the universe to hear.
3OH!3 may not be for the faint of heart, but they can rock the hell out of electronic beats and foul language. They’ll always be the “same old boulder mofos”.
