So a lot of people have been wondering what connection Scarsick has to TPE.
I happen to remember saying it looked like TPE2 a long while ago, but the community, and I, agreed I was wrong. God I have never hated being right more.
For those doubters who question whether or not this sub-par effort could really be the follow up to a breakthrough album, I'll let you hear it from Daniel himself. Thanks to youtube, we have an interview with him (divided into 2 parts).http://youtube.com/watch?v=UGiLfsvw8YMhttp://youtube.com/watch?v=f6Q0Br0A-y0
So there you have it. I feel like he abandoned a strong set of characters and their identities to make a statement and rip on capitalism. While I don't mind the ripping or questioning ideas, I just wish he would have made TPE2 related to the original, bringing back the motifs and ideas (or even the characters) from that album.
Instead of Scarshit, which is full of laughable lyrics and fairly horrible rapping. Spitball makes Used look like Tupac (though I can't say I'm a big fan or rap in any form).
Alas, I'm quite let down. Anyone else even more disappointed knowing that we cant be optimistic and still look forward to The Perfect Element Part 2? Its already here!
Perhaps the funniest part, is among all his anti-capitalist rants, Daniel proclaims his album to be the 'fucking best album out there' and urges us all to go and buy it. Man, just not a good year for PoS.
