Last week, UTG grinded a few gears with our review of Jeffree Star’s abomination of an EP and this week; we’re kicking it up a notch. It’s not that we have anything directly against Myspace celebrities because a lot of them do have some amazing abilities [ex: Secondhand Serenade], but there are some that are just so preposturous and downright juvenile that we can’t help, but feel the need to confess our hatred towards. This time around in the world of Myspace sensation we have the emo-crunk of Brokencyde and their debut EP BC 13 which is out now on Suburband Noize Records. What is emo crunk? The answer my friends, is the result of taking sexism, racial cliches, poor synth beats, horrible lyrics, and bad style and putting it all in a blender on high for five minutes.

Many people jumped on board with our comments on Mr. Star and I think this is one review that may garner somewhat torn thoughts from our readers. The genre that Brokencyde belongs in has been bursting in the last year as groups like 3oh3! and Breathe Carolina [who both do it justice] have made a name in the national market with label deals and decent releases, but just like everything great, there are 1000 impersonators doing it poorly. BC 13 is five tracks of ear gouging synth that would be perfection with a decent vocalist and catchy lyrics, ut unfortunately these tones are given neither and have to support the weight of poor autotune and more than annoying, repetitious screams. There are 5 members to Brokencyde, but one is a “crunk pig” mascot and one is their tour manager. Of the 3 “real members,” one sings, two scream and one of them admits to simply “ad libbing,” which generally turns out to just be inaudible yelps over the vocoder of the singer. If this doesn’t sound like disaster to you, you may want to check your musical arithmetical once again.

Now, I wouldn’t be doing this record any justice without discussing their so called musicianship. The beats are radio ready, but as previously mentioned, they collapse under the need to carry everything as the vocals and lyrics play like atrocities. “Girl you make my pee pee hard,” should never be uttered. Period. However Brokencyde manages to use this line and many others like it in great repetition as they work through BC 13. It’s enouh to make anyone with an ounce of maturity groan and even those who find enjoyment in such humor will find it a quickly fading hilarity that soon turns to annoyance. On top of all this, the band manages to take every hip hop cliche and use ti ina  way that’s propelled them forward because they also rockt he latest Hot Topic based clothing. The meer site of them is enough to make civil rights leaders of the past turn in graves.

Now, we gave Mr. Star half a point based off the one truly great beat on his disc and this EP is getting a bit more as the music does have some more consistancy to it. The beats hit hard and may even have enough life to live on their own without vocals, but unfortunately, there are 3 sets of vocals which work to rot your mind and make a crumbling base off the music. BC 13 is a contender for the worst album released this year, but that will matter not to those who buy into this sham of a genre. Those who love Jeffree Star, Millionaires, Hyper Crush, and other such bands will eat it up, everyone else needs to simply close our eyes, hope its all a dream, and click our heels.

    This album is atrocious. That much is true. It’s very misogynistic, juvenile, and annoying. Se7en sounds like he’s choking on his own vomit and the beats are very easy to produce. “Girl you make my pee pee hard” sounds like something that would make a 12 year-old chortle with explosive laughter but not anyone else. Just listening to the first track of this album makes you wish that you had your Kidz Bop CD handy. This really should constitute as a cruel and unusual punishment but nothing more.
