Review: Ugly Kid Joe – Everything About You (Rock)

This review covers the hard rock track Ugly Kid Joe – Everything About You.

This track was released in 1992 as a single.

The track starts with some sort or voice sample. Part way through, the guitars and parts of the drum kit start coming in. After that, the lead guitars then start to take over as well as a more full drum kit. The vocals then come in for the first verse.

From there, the vocals take the track into the main chorus. Shortly after that, the vocals take the track into the next verse.

After that, the vocals take the track into the next verse. After that, the next verse takes a more acoustic sound for a brief period. A guitar solo then comes into the track.

An instrumental section then takes over. The vocals then come in for another verse. This is capped off with a modified main chorus. This is best described as a Broadway satire. After that, the track ends.

One positive side of this track is that it has a very well realized mood. Not only do the lyrics work pretty well, but it is easy for people to relate to them.

The guitar work also works quite well. While the solo isn’t the greatest one I’ve heard, it’s pretty decent. So, I’ll give a thumbs up to that aspect of the track.

For me, the track starts to fall apart during the last verse. It’s just oddly sung to me. The satire of Broadway may be something that was meant to be funny, but it makes the track sound a bit cliche in my view.

Overall, this is a great track right up the last little bit. Then it more or less falls apart. The vocals are decent and the guitar work is pretty good. The mood is very well realized as well. So, an overall pretty solid track.

Score
7.5/10
