Pajo-"Scream With Me"

If you are like me, you grew up with The Misfits. They were an institution, they had an evil image, catchy as fuck songs, and Glen Danzig!! Despite whatever drivel he releases now under his eponymously named band, you can't go wrong with The Misfits.

David Pajo(Slint,Zwan,Aerial M, and Will Oldham), on his third solo album, has delivered an all acoustic, cover album of classic Misfits tunes. I have to say that, despite the variety in all 10 of the original songs, Pajo makes it sound like 1 long song. That's not neccesarily a bad thing, especially if you like down-tempo folk. It's quite funny to hear classics like Angelfuck, Hybrid Moments, and Teenagers From Mars, delivered in such a deadpan manner. I have actually grown quite fond of this disc, after repeated spins. I wouldn't recommend this to casual fans of The Misfits. But, if you like Pajo's earlier works, and The Misfits, you should definitely pick this up. It only runs like 28 minutes, so unless you have ADD, the tempo things shouldnt be a problem.
