Album Review

Pro-Social Content

The singer regrets being self-absorbed (“And Me”), and criticizes a guy for ogling a woman (“Song for the Man”). On “Putting Shame in Your Game,” he condemns greed while warning that sown thoughts reap consequences. “Remote Control” preaches gratitude and tells listeners, “Share your love with a friend.” Other isolated lines promote harmony and nonviolent negotiation, but . . .

Objectionable Content

A violent threat rocks “Intergalactic.” At least six tracks spout profane language, ranging from the f-word to abuses of God’s name. Several songs find the Boys boasting of their skills with music, rhymes and ladies. “Unite” sanctions astrology and marijuana use. On the contextually murky “Instant Death,” the lyricist speaks of suicide and his own desire to “die an instant death.”

Summary Advisory

Despite an assimilation of positive and negative content, the severity of Nasty‘s nastiness–obscenities, drugs, astrology and mysticism–make it one to avoid.
