Album Review

Working again with American Tragedy producer/co-writer Griffin Boice, masked alt-metal/rap outfit Hollywood Undead returned with their testosterone-fueled signature sound for their 2012 album Notes from the Underground. The record boosts the knowing arena rock posturing with titanic contemporary production. Going for a grand scale enhances the power of their rap-metal attack, which can get tedious, but as they did on the previous year's outing, Johnny 3 Tears, Charlie Scene, Da Kurlzz, Funny Man, J-Dog, and Danny divide their songs up into club pop, rap-rock, and power ballads to break up the sameness of Hollywood suburbia. There are two lyrical themes, too, almost as if they are partying recklessly when the masks are on, and inner angst is revealed when the masks are removed. For every song that revolves around juvenile humor — for instance, the thinly veiled sports gag "Pigskin," where Charlie Scene raps about his weenie and Danny sings "Hike up your skirt girl, let's get naughty" — there's a seemingly heartfelt song about dejection. The party rhymes are pretty played out at this point, and knowingly so, as evidenced by a line like "Girls look at me like that guy must make pornos/Yeah, I'm pushing 30 but I still drink Mickey's four O's," but otherwise, the group shows no signs of slowing and will probably still be going strong if and when rap-rock makes a resurgence. [The black-covered edition of Notes from the Underground is the unabridged version and features three extra songs, "Medicine," "One More Bottle," and "Delish."]

Customer Reviews

Excellent

HU is back and rocking harder than ever. To me, this album is better than swan songs. I don't find myself skipping songs.
The most standout track to me is lion. Hard rocking and great lyrics. A good break from the party tracks such as dead bite, also pretty good. All in all 9/10. I think HU has finally hit that sweet spot they've been striving for.

Perfect!

This album is perfect.

Great album

Different from their earlier music but I'm living the new sound.

Biography

Formed: June, 2005 in Hollywood, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Hollywood Undead hail (unsurprisingly) from the streets of Hollywood, California, mixing brash hip-hop, rock, and minor metalcore touches with cocky posturing and thug attitudes. Owing much of their popularity and exposure to the social networking monster MySpace, the group — whose members usually wear masks on-stage — started as the musical project of J-Dog and Tha Producer in June 2005. They uploaded some new music to their profile and very quickly started amassing song plays and online...
