Synopsis

Album Description
In this, their seventh album, the Bobs again team up with visionary producer Scott Mathews to boldly go where no a capella group has gone before. This record ranges from simple, straight-ahead acoustic a capella - just four people singing live in a room - to plugged-in electric a capella, with the Bobs' voices surfing on waves of pure distortion. This record contains 14 new original songs covering such subjects as love, singing, coffee, smoke and beat poetry, tattoos, bumper stickers, professional wrestling and of course . . . livestock in outer space.

The BOB's one person's opinion on Plugged
Johnny Heering | 03/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I own 3 of the Best Of Breed 's (the BOB'S) albums/cd's since 1988. I listen to them for their vocal harmony and carefree inflection, ...and because they make me giggle or smile; This one makes me chuckle, with their treatment of American (pop) culture; A common subject w/ most of their work. You can despise doctor demento and still be a fan of the BOBS. If you've ever made a joke at the expense of your public image or have "interesting" observations about daily american life and culture (i.e. The Simpsons), you will probably appreciate more then half the songs on this CD. I plan to send it to my brother in Japan, so he can hear what he has been missing the last ten years. Hopefully making him so homesick that he comes back to the states."

"This album was the Bobs answer to the "unplugged" craze of the 1990s. The Bobs "plugged in" and used various electronic effects to distort their voices on some of the songs here. For example, Joe Bob used feedback to make his voice sound like an electric guitar on several songs here. They also used toy drums and cardboard boxes for percussion on a few songs. The resulting album is my personal favorite Bobs album. It has their trademark vocal harmonies and humorous songs. Songs about singing, tattoos, bumper sticker slogans, hungry astronauts, obituaries, coffee, love, smoke, neo-beatniks, outlet malls and Andy Kaufman. What more can you ask for? There is also an unlisted bonus track, which is a brief clip of producer Scott Mathews practicing on the toy drums for "Meat on the Moon". Buy this CD!"
