    Going only by the cover art, 29 second clips and what has been posted on their myspace .. Perry has clearly lost his mind. Bringing in hair rocker Nuno and forcing his wife Etty down are throats makes me wish that I was able to give this a negative score.

    albums like this are the reason that the best regarded rock icons die young. because they aren't around long enough to record watered down tripe like this garbage. also, big congrats to Perry on the affirmative action hire of his wife who lacks musical talent and thus is reduced to being the girl on stage with breast implants.

    The music is as lame as that lame-ass cover. Such lameness.

    Some tracks could be used for filler at a party but the lyrics and music are just half assed and obviously should not be taken seriously. Awesome? Really? Much of the style seems to be taken from old school RHCP to Thievery Corporation. I just don't see "happy hippy" since hippies don't listen to 90's throwback electronica funk.

    A surprisingly rewarding listen. [#17, p.86]

    "Ultra Payloaded" is a party record that veers from the light, airy and catchy to the absolutely crankable. [2 Jun 2007]
  3. Mr. Farrell has become the happy hippie that Jim Morrison never was.
