    Hefty Fine stands as a great disappointment. Although it features great songs and genius lyrics, there are only nine songs on it. Especially when the Bloodhound Gang announced that they had 4-5 songs which could have been recorded on to the album.

    There are two decent songs on the whole thing and the rest are pretty drab. I honestly don't think they are as bad as people say, there is just a lot of haters and it is a band which is held to a higher standard (a standard many assume it will not meet). Sadly though, most of the songs were fairly awful, but the two I liked were enough to give it a 4.

    The Bloodhound Gang were so great at humor. It's so minimal in this one that it's barely recognize; it's like half a regular Bloodhound Gang album. It's quite surprising to see such a disappointment from a band who made three albums over 6 years that were all full of humor that seemed so seemless and so gut-bustingly rich at nearly every, if not every, line and then The Bloodhound Gang were so great at humor.

It's quite surprising to see such a disappointment from a band who made three albums over 6 years that were all full of humor that seemed so seemless and so gut-bustingly rich at nearly every, if not every, line and then they bring this one. It's as if they out of nowhere forgot how well they filled up an album with great fun. The music is still fun, there are a few clever lines (I never thought I could count the number of times The Bloodhound Gang had a good line on an album) , and some of the ideas they started are interesting, but it's so much not the same, it's crazy.

    It's not that it's bad, it's just not very good. As is Bloodhound Gang.

    First of all not heard album Reply to Johnny B who 1) wants less biased critics i.e biased towards what he likes. 2) admits about this album "this might not be their best album" and voted it as a 10 so therefore other albums must score 11 plus, Rock and roll Spinal Tap -

    Crude, Typical and Annoyingly Immature. Yet, they were quite fun live. Some Catchy Songs, That's It.

    The Bloodhound Gang is a joke that ran it's course after their first single.

  1. Hefty Fine finds the Bloodhound Gang in a Catch-22 -- they've never wanted to be anything other than a dumb, silly hard rock band, but their shtick is getting tired, yet they're trapped by the confines of what they want to be.
  2. No, kids, it's not that scatological jokes aren't funny, just that these scatological jokes aren't funny.

    The nu-metal and new wave sendups are too conventional to work as either comedy or music--and the nonstop woman-bashing becomes repugnant fast. [Nov 2005, p.131]
