MSTRKRFT Fist of God

Publish date:

Sometimes “bad” just isn’t strong enough. Fist of God is one of those albums that should be known as “dangerously bad.” Three years removed from their respectable debut, The Looks, Jesse Keeler and Al-P should have been able to come up with more than a warmed-over collection of jock-friendly, fist-pumping Justice and Daft Punk retreads with all the subtlety of your favorite nu-metal anthem. The parade of awful guest vocals does little to help their cause, as Lil’ Mo, N.O.R.E., and John Legend (I’m just as confused as you are) serve up one insipid offering after another. They even found a way to make Ghostface Killah sound trite—that takes special skill. Avoid at all costs.
