Album Review

Obliterating the concept of guilty musical pleasures, I Get Wet turns hair metal hedonism, punk energy, and pop melodies into an instant, insistent blast of fun with all the power of a beer commercial. From the opening anthem, "It's Time to Party," to the excellently named finale, "Don't Stop Living in the Red," the album is all climax — the blasting guitars, blaring keyboards, and Andrew W.K. himself are all turned up to 11 throughout. W.K. is a one-man manifesto, dedicated to spreading the way of the party with songs like "Party Hard" ("We do what we like and we like what we do!" could be "Dirty deeds done dirt cheap" several generations down the road), "Party Til You Puke," and "I Get Wet," and the fact that he looks like the stoner bully from high school only adds to his cred. Guessing whether or not Andrew W.K. is a big joke or not is almost beside the point; he comes on so strong that he either really means it, maaan, or he's got his tongue stuck firmly in his bloodied cheek. Either way, there's not much fence-sitting with his music — you'll think the big, dumb, cartoonish "Girls Own Love" and "Ready to Die" are the stupidest songs you've ever heard, or you'll love them because they're the stupidest songs you've ever heard. Even I Get Wet's sensitive "She Is Beautiful," which is about being too shy to talk to a pretty girl, is about as subtle as a high schooler's after-shave — and just as awkwardly charming. While the album has a certain sameness due to the frenetic beat that drives nearly every track, it's the perfect complement to W.K.'s party-centric vision. Refreshingly simple and cleverly stupid, I Get Wet is a great big bear hug of an album, and resistance to its hard-partying charms is futile.

Customer Reviews

Just party

Perfect for dancing naked!

If you listen to this album expecting lyrical beauty and musical depth...

...you are an idiot. I can understand that his lyrics are as shallow as a kiddie pool and that his music all sounds the same. Put that aside, take the CD and pump it at 10:30 at night in a top-down jeep going 70 down a side road on the way to white castle and then tell me that this is not a good album.

When it's time to party...

If you're looking for thoughtful lyrics about love and life, keep on looking. If you're looking for some awesome hard rock party songs about, well, partying, look no further! Andrew W.K.'s debut "I Get Wet" is pure, crazy fun. He blends the ridiculously grandiose style of 80's hair metal with punk energy for some songs guaranteed to have you jumping up and down waving your fists in the air. If you're looking for some just plain fun music, here it is.

Biography

Born: May 9, 1979 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Not just a party animal but a party guerrilla, Andrew W.K. burst onto the scene with a hybrid of metal, pop, and dance that parodied and paid tribute to the cheesiest, sleaziest aspects of all three styles. The California-born, Michigan-bred W.K. — the initials stand for everything from "White Killer" to "Women Kum" to "Wilkes-Krier," the surnames of his mom and dad — began classical piano lessons at age four and moved on to playing in Detroit punk and metal bands, including the Pterodactyls....
