专辑介绍

"Because I Got High" is one of those genius, perfectly conceived and executed singles that seem to arise from the ether as if they´ve always been there. Sparely instrumented, recorded so nonchalantly it´s hard to believe that anybody believed that the tape was rolling, it´s a riot ? it´s not just a frat rock anthem, it´s a logical, brilliant record, escalating from verse to verse, with its consciously off-handed comments still capable of eliciting extreme laughter on the 20th spin.

"Because I Got High" is one of those genius, perfectly conceived and executed singles that seem to arise from the ether as if they´ve always been there. Sparely instrumented, recorded so nonchalantly it´s hard to believe that anybody believed that the tape was rolling, it´s a riot ? it´s not just a frat rock anthem, it´s a logical, brilliant record, escalating from verse to verse, with its consciously off-handed comments still capable of eliciting extreme laughter on the 20th spin. It´s so good, in fact, that it´s easy to expect that the rest of Afroman´s The Good Times is of a similar caliber but it´s not, even if "The American Dream" borrows the backing track wholesale. Problem is, Afroman doesn´t rely on the cleverness that informs "Because I Got High," but he trades it for vulgarity that could have been acceptable if it had a spark of wit ? instead, it just lays there. It´s not necessarily a bad listen, since it is in the same vein as the hit, and is fairly well produced, but it just doesn´t have the spark that makes "Because I Got High" such an intoxicating, irresistible single. So, if you´re looking just for that song, you´re better off with the Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back soundtrack, because at least with that you get Jason Mewes´ brilliant updating of "Jay´s Rap."
