Puscifer: V Is For Viagra-The Remixes

Not surprisingly, everything about this album which uses contributions from members of Nine Inch Nails, Telefon Tel Aviv, Ministry and Slipknot to deconstruct and reinterpret songs from Puscifer's 2007 debut V Is For Vagina screams, howls and moans sex: the name of the group (which essentially is comprised solely of Tool's Maynard James Kennan), the outrageous artwork and blue-pill inside packaging, song titles like "Vagina Mine [Deflowering Mix]" and "Country Boner [Dirty Robot Mix]," and the music itself. Dense, groovy, murky, danceable and unashamedly repetitive, the sounds of V Is For Viagra: The Remixes may not be too far removed from their original form a terrifying prospect for fans of the more progressive and more metal Tool and A Perfect Circle. These versions go on way too long and are enough to fray the nerves of less-adventurous listeners.

And the juvenile humor? Not so funny. (A public service announcement at the end of the record congratulates listeners for making it to the end thusly: "Thank you for popping in. We hope you come again real soon." That is followed by the irresistibly catchy "Country Boner [Disco Viagra Mix]," which boasts so much potential to offend that it defies description.

Amidst the beats and drones and nonsense are two songs that represent either end of the Puscifer spectrum: "Drunk with Power [Hungover and Hostile in Hannover Mix]" by Slipknot's Joey Jordison devolves into rap lyrics, while the trippy "Momma Sed [Tandimonium Mix]" by Skinny Puppy producer Dave Ogilvie and Colin Janz sounds more like a "real" song than certainly anything else on this mess of a record.
