Ugly Duckling Bang for the Buck
- Words: Sabrina Ford
- Label: Fat Beats
I'm always down to hear a rap album that doesn't make me want to take my earrings off and grab a jar of Vaseline. Many alternative-rap artists confuse being different with being good; fortunately, that's not the case with Ugly Duckling. This album isn't defined by how "not like" everything else is it. Clever lyrics and funky uptempo tracks distinguish the SoCal trio from the pack on their latest release. The standout track "The Breakdown" is aggressive by UG standards but more amusing and danceable than most of what's out there.
