First, I have to bestow a Dubious Distinction Award on America's own Sweatin' Like Nixon, who innocently managed to test military security and very nearly have their CD disposed of as a possible mail bomb, all because they didn't put my name on their package! Very cool, completely unique. As for Tunes For The Young People To Enjoy, it's a likable mix of r'n'b, blues, psychedelia, jazz, hip-hop, and progressive rock. Humor is everywhere; "Hot Pockets" exults the virtues of the freezer-to-the-microwave meal, while "Mature Post" pokes fun at a porn website dedicated to the wiles of 'older women' - not that I would know, of course! "Comfortability," a funky hip-hop workout, is "a shameless attempt at street credibility" that meshes perfectly with Sweatin' Like Nixon's more eclectic cuts. Funky and fun, Tunes For The Young People To Enjoy is designed to appeal to the younger audience, but should work for anyone who likes some grit in their prog.
