Funny satirical CD, at times even pretty

"AC's infamous satirical CD "Picnic of Love" is a total 180 degree turn from their usual we-offend-everybody grindcore. This is just Seth Putnam singing along (usually falsetto) to an acoustic guitar. The songs are hilarious. They're all about sensitivity, trimming gardens full of flowers, waterfalls, chastity, going on long walks with "that special girl", saving mother earth, etc. Picture a couple of peace and love devoted junior high school kids in a mid-70s folk band - that should give you an idea of what this stuff feels like.
One song starts out:
"I saw your deep blue eyes from afar
I saw you at the church bazaar
I asked the priest to introduce me to your mother
And I asked her to introduce us to each other"
This from the same group that wrote a song called "Kill Women" where the only lyrics are:
The amazing part is that some of the songs are actually quite pretty. The guitar playing is really quite good.
Although Seth's singing on "I'm Not That Kind of Boy" is just frightening
It takes a special someone...

"...to make an album this brilliant. I'd been a long-time AC fan, but when my friend told me about this album, I was impressed. Not nearly impressed, however, as I was when I actually HEARD the CD!!!! I didn't realize they actually knew how to play Bon Jovi-style acoustic guitar for starters, and Seth (somehow) sings the whole damn album without bursting into laughter. The listener, of course, can do nothing but burst into laughter. If you want to make this album even more fun, listen to it in-between other AC albums. Totally amazing, and miles above the call of duty."

"God, I really love AC. This album is just so funny. The way he sings it is genius. "GREED IS SOMETHING WE DON'T NEED" heh. Makes a real change. Excellent."
