The Lonely Island Wants To Have Sex With Your Mother
Similarly to Incredibad, Turtleneck & Chain's best laughs come not from the trio's solo work, but the ludicrous performances given by their guests. Whether it is Michael Bolton randomly letting loose some rather triumphant singing about the adventures of The Pirates of the Caribbean within "Jack Sparrow," Rihanna uttering the phrase "boner alert" in "Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie & Clyde," or Justin Timberlake singing splendidly about wanting to have intercourse with the mothers of the world, Turtleneck & Chain's comical highs manage to outweigh the relatively embarrassing lows within the occasional poor rapping and missed punch lines. I may not care for Samberg's stories about fighting Rocky or the recycled "I'm On A Boat" styling of "I Just Had Sex" (Seriously, the group managed to find another auto-tuned black man who was fading into obscurity in recent years: Akon), but I'm perfectly content listening to the band lampooning homophobia within "No Homo," and hearing how to properly "do the creep" within "The Creep." Did I mention that Snoop Dogg is included, and were you listening when I told you that Justin Timberlake wants to have sex with your mother? Take a deep breath, don the classiest turtleneck you own, give "Motherlover" a watch (NSFW), and give Turtleneck & Chain's classless, middle school humor a chance on May 10th through Universal Records.
