  1. Balls-out heavy metal with an emphasis on speed and keyboard-driven hooks, the album rocks almost recklessly, but without the trappings that burden its peers: There's no camp, no irony, and, most notably, no angst.
  2. Refreshingly simple and cleverly stupid, I Get Wet makes indoctrination fun again.
  3. W.K. must know how ridiculous this all sounds, but he attacks the material with such fervor that you almost believe he means every word.
  4. Bracing, cynical, state-of-the-art fun in the spirit of Little Richard, Van Halen and The Damned.

    Instead of rehashing rap and rock, he smashes up pop melodies, metal riffs and industrial beats with a hammer, creating something that teeters on parody yet heralds an enthusiastic return to the days when hair metal knew how to get the crowds loaded. [Apr 2002, p.65]
  6. His sound is furious, muscular and relentless - not to mention camp, dangerous and slightly insane.
  7. There's no denying the over-the-top whomp of his music, the loudest and funniest metal you've heard in ages.
  8. After one listen to I Get Wet, you'll swear you've heard it before... but somehow, you've never heard anything like it.
  9. It's simultaneously refreshing and amusing. And it rocks hard.

A lot of hard rock and metal is really serious and dark, I Get Wet is nothing but a nonstop party. If you've never seen Andrew WK live you might think this is just one long joke album, but after seeing the way this guy smiles at the crowd in person you realize he is seriously interested in making people happy. Highly recommended for those just wanting to rock out and have a good time. Full Review »

Sure the songs are repetitive, but if you're looking for some feel-good fun jams, this is a great album to check out. Full Review »

Don't listen to this guy for a deep and thoughtful experience - just turn the volume up to ten and party down. Full Review »
