I've been a fan of 3oh!3 since their first album. Sean and Nate both must be audiophiles themselves, because every album sounds amazing through good headphones. I'm not sure how I feel about the new direction this album of the tracks "Freak Your Mind" reminds me of a Justin Timberlake song, and "Mad At You" has a really weird vibe to it. There's of course some humor (as always) on the album.

Of course the intro song for every album is always almost a headphone test in and of itself. This time they decided to put lyrics in the opening track:

They leaked a new track or two every few weeks leading up to the release of the full album. I was catching the new tracks on Spotify as they became available, trying to decide how I felt about the upcoming release.

Here's some of the new tracks:

I think I like this one the best so far right now:

I play around with my own true analog synthesizer myself actually. I have an Arturia Micro Brute:

There's a pretty funny track on the new album -- here's the edited version. Trust me, you want the unedited actual music video. It gets stuck in your head...

Loved 3oh3 back in 09-10 as I was that dude in HS with a car audio system worth 4x the value of his vehicle.

Completely agree, and as a bit of an audiophile I know exactly what you mean.

From the bass you only feel to the high end frequencies that aren't heard, (but somehow exist with the right equipment) the music is wonderful.

But the lyrics were effing hilarious and it was more played as a "late night, downtown, let's screw with the college kids burn ride"

Remember "choke chain"? And the "tell your BF if he says he got beef, that I'm a vegetarian and I ain't $&@kin scared of him!"

So wonderful....

Yes, I was a bit of a douche in those days. But I wouldn't trade it for the world!

So, are these guys like a comedy/parody band a la Lonely Island?

I'd only heard of them once before today and assumed they were on the Katy Perry song for comedy value.

Their sound is almost comical, but I assume that's their gimmick? Like a cross between Lonely Island and Goldie Lookin' Chain.

Sort of. Not really.

They don't make music to be funny, rather they have fun with the music they make -- they don't take themselves to seriously, but they take their music seriously.

They're musicians who tend to tell jokes, whereas Lonley Island are comedians who occasionally make music (with the help of actual song writers).
