Guttermouth - Gorgeous (Cover Artwork)
Staff Review


Gorgeous (1999)


Well, I can say one thing, it's definately Guttermouth. I really don't think this band could be confused with anyone else, they are very original. But you must remember, originality does NOT always equal a good CD.

While the band has developed it's own twisted sense of humor (with their biggest 'joke' being that all rollerbladers are gay), their style hasn't changed at all. I got pretty bored listening to this, to tell you the truth. Basic hardcore-ish punk, with snotty vocals. There are a few nice moments to this CD, like the hidden track (why does every single band feel the need to do one of these now?) where Guttermouth is playing at a school assembly or something to that extent. The layout sucks horribly, though, especially the back cover. Maybe it's just me, but I have no way of telling the order of the songs from reading the back. It actually gave me a mild headache trying to decipher it. Stick to the basics, guys, just use numbers! I wouldn't pay 13 or 14 bucks for this, but if I was in a record store on a rainy day, I might pick this up.
