Artists - South Park - Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
Wrold's First R-Rated Animated Musical
the world needs now, is love, sweet love. Or maybe all we
really need is to get rid of Canada. At least that seems to
be the theme of South Park : Bigger, Longer, and Uncut.
This is a musical,
but it is no way about love. Instead it is full of vulgarity,
bodily functions, heaven and hell, and random acts of unpredictable
violence. In other words, it kicks ass.
First off, I
need to make a confession... although I do call myself a South
Park fan, I never got a chance to see the movie while it was
in the theaters. However, after hearing this soundtrack, I
have already put down my money to reserve a DVD when the movie
is released for home viewing. A soundtrack has never done
that for me before.
this is a brilliant album. Parker and Stone (creators of South
Park) have showed off just how much talent they really do
possess. The album works exactly as a musical full of showtunes
would. There is the opening song which sets the mood for the
show, in this case "Mountain Town." Throughout the
album, the story of the show is portrayed through song. There
is even an entre'act entitled "A Resistance Medley."
Musically it sounds just like a broadway show - I can't wait
to see the choreography now.
But why a musical?
Let's face, it the majority of South Park fans are probably
not the theater going crowd... However, this album overcomes
those barriers. There is not a hint of seriousness to the
songs, and in the one point where it may seem like something
is coming through - we are given a heartfelt song - sung by
none other than Satan. How is that for irony?
pretty much every other soundtrack, this one has its high
points as well as its low points. Some of the funniest tracks
include "I'm Super" (Big Gay Al), "mmmKay"
(Mr. Mackey), and my personal favorite "Uncle Fucka"
(Terrance and Philip - who else could do a fart solo?). The
album could have easily done without the Kid Rock version
of "Kyle's Mom is a Bitch" but at least the extended
version by Eric Cartman makes up for it.
