Man Man — Life Fantastic
Man Man is one of those bands that may offer up too much of a good thing. I love their 2006 Six Demon Bag and, for whatever reason, glossed over the follow-up. Both were filled with crazy sea-shanties and the same ridiculous energy, but I loved one and not the other. Life Fantastic is much the same; great variety of instrumentation, a pirate undertone throughout and a general craze to the album. A mad man's ranting through song. Maybe I just like every other Man Man album and this is the proof to the rule.
