  • Summary: This big-budget debut album from 22-year-old Detroit-raised rocker Andrew WK took the UK (well, at least its music press) by storm in late 2001.

  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. After one listen to I Get Wet, you'll swear you've heard it before... but somehow, you've never heard anything like it.
  5. It's simultaneously refreshing and amusing. And it rocks hard.

    Those in search of a gloriously moronic keg-party soundtrack will wet themselves with pleasure. [Apr/May 2002, p.112]
  7. Call us out of sync, but we never got the memo proclaiming that wafer-thin cheese metal sung by deranged lunatics is back in fashion.

    Brilliant album, there's not much else to say, I feel sorry for anyone that doesn't like it, they're really missing out.

    Any album that gets a 0.6 from Pitchfork Media has to be good!

    I loved this album. I know the lyrics aren't very deep but I don't think all albums need to be "symbolic" or have metaphors for I loved this album. I know the lyrics aren't very deep but I don't think all albums need to be "symbolic" or have metaphors for everything. Sometimes people need that fun album to work out to. Expand

    Every now and then someone comes along with a sound so different, so unique, so revolutionary that it changes that it freakin rearranges the Every now and then someone comes along with a sound so different, so unique, so revolutionary that it changes that it freakin rearranges the mountains on the rock landscape. This is a fun album to listen to until that record comes around. Expand

    Gold! From the interview with the onion: Every melody line is composed of like 40 sounds combined. I did not want it to be the sound of a Gold! From the interview with the onion: Every melody line is composed of like 40 sounds combined. I did not want it to be the sound of a guitar and drums and bass playing. I wanted it to be the sound of the song playing, so you just hear one big, massive instrument grinding out this song. You can imagine it sort of all coming from one enormous source, where you just hear an infinite expanse of a million things all happening in perfect unison, all laid out in front of you. Perfect description! Expand

    Nice sounds, similar to the old days of true metal. At times, they sound like KISS, which to me is a good thing.
