    This is a clangorous album in every way, full of brick-dense synths and abusive drums, and it often succeeds by blind force. But elsewhere the duo--Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman--are much slier and much more successful.

    Few things are more excruciating than hearing shallow frat guys try to sound deep, and these tracks can really make you wince. Ultimately though, when 3OH!3 stick to the anthemic, glorification/satirization of their own lifestyle, the good certainly outweighs the bad on Omens.

    Sometimes it works, other times it just sounds bitter and gratuitous. [Jul 2013, p.96]

    On their fourth LP, they ditch the guest stars to bluster, drop stale references (Yes, "winning"!) and obsess over chicks.

    Its fun to listen to this album. I like the beats, the rapping, and the subject matter. Its definitely pop music, referencing a lot of styles that are already tried and true. Don't expect nothing new here, just more of the styles and concepts you already like... and there is nothing wrong with that. Expand
