    Overall, Occasion boasts a myriad of sounds and heads may gravitate more toward certain lanes than others but, with nary a weak track, Kidz In The Hall keep it game tight and deliver a dope-ass record.

    Occasion opts for Kanye-esque stadium-status beats, merry lyrics that include perhaps the only rap reference to a "bar stool in Poughkeepsie," and a joyous closing cut called "Walk on Air."

    The result is tailored toward the stereotypical collegiate definition of "fun," sounding like the soundtrack to a keg party, rather than the "grown and sexy" interpretation of a good time.

    Their infectious electro-funk certainly has a new hedonistic swagger. [Feb 2012, p.104]

    If you enjoy hearing young men discuss "clothes, hoes and liquor" at length and in detail, to the accompaniment of varying sonic backdrops, this is the record for you. In case the above doesn't make it plain enough: this is a party album.

    "Occasion" is an abomination by all standards, but that it comes from such a respected entity as Kidz in the Hall makes it even more inexcusable.
