  1. I mean, the guys have packed Streets of Gold with mindless, completely clustered romps through nothingness.
  2. 3OH!3 are electro-hip-pop white bread American scum.
  3. Streets of Gold is about as pleasant as a case of genital herpes.
  4. 20
    Over brutish synths and hammy bleats, the puerile brosefs' third album shares, among other witticisms: Gonna have a house party in my house.

    Sadly enough, America is falling for 3OH!3's "charmless, but highly catchy" tunes. Street of Gold's lead single, "My First Kiss", is the only standout track -- because while it is obnoxiously written and sadly produced, it is catchy and it's nice to hear Ke$ha's vocals, even for a mere second. However, the rest of Street of Gold never differs from 3OH!3's usual "talk-rap" jabber. Basically, there's never really any talent being shown. Not even the backing tracks sound all that attractive.

    Street of Gold offers 3OH!3 nothing more than a few bucks from listeners who are starving for new music. But listeners who actually respect music...won't find anything but garbage.

    Takes the piss. This album is absolutely dreadful, the lack of intelligence in the lyrics is depressing, the music is so putrid that the sounds of a cat being raped by an elephant would be more pleasant. Their prior album was repugnant, it made them my least favorite band on the face of the earth, in the entire history of mankind. This album is so putrid that it can only be described as the byproduct of fungi growing from Satan's armpit mixing with the only toilet at a chilli cook-off. It has redefined what terrible is in every way shape and form. The themes are shockingly less mature than the prior album's, focusing on the touching of genitals and removing of panties, once again objectifying women and making the assumption that their ape ugly arses are desirable in some way. The production is so heavy that it repeats the obvious lack of talent seen in their prior album, and once again there are no real instruments present in the album, only cheap synth effects. No talent went into the making of this album, it's so low brow that it kills the brain cells of those listening and sounds so awful that capitol punishment seems like the only thing 3Oh!3 deserves as payment. Essentially this album is scraping the bottom of the idiot barrel, and you're an idiot too if you enjoy it. Full Review »
