Critiques comiques: Bad Acid Trip – « Lynch The Weirdo »

– « It’s too bad that « Worst Albums Of The Year » lists don’t get created, passed around, studied and debated with as much fervor as « Best Album Of The Year » rankings. Well, it may not be all that great for California’s Bad Acid Trip because Lynch The Weirdo would probably top that list before easily garnering preliminary nominations for worst album of the decade. What makes this album such a lose-lose proposition?

No, it has nothing to do with the band being signed to Serjical Strike, the label banked by Serj Tankian of nu-metal (?) infidels System Of A Down. That would be shallow and unfair. Truth is, simply, this is bad with a capital B-A-D. From the outside looking in, Bad Acid Trip attempts to be an esoteric and comedic grind/noisecore unit of street-savvy, DIY warriors whose goal is to use their poor stabs at Three One G-ish musical chaos in order to liberate humanity from its tunnel vision while having a few chuckles along the way. Of course, someone forgot to point out that no one is going to care about what a band that sounds as if Gwar possessed and crushed the spirit of The Locust and combined the resulting mess with the likes of of Intense Mutilation and A.C. has to say. Especially when the result is a heartless, soulless, cut-and-paste din that makes Lawnmower Deth look like fusion musicians and, overall, is about as funny as owning property in downtown Baghdad. »
