Conclusion

Pro-social Content

A man expresses undying love to his woman on "Live Forever (Fly With Me)." Isolated lyrics preach self-acceptance and a solid work ethic. An adulterer takes full blame and asks for forgiveness on "Coming Clean." There's an attempt to rescue a relationship, but ...

Objectionable Content

"Live a Little" relies on an f-word and a drug metaphor in the process. Raw language creeps into most of these tracks. The hero of "Drnk Txt Rmeo" calls himself an "aspiring alcoholic, drownin' the day's pain," then text-messages women, searching for a casual hookup. "Cookie Jar" minimizes an addictive lust for new sex partners by comparing it to a sweet tooth. Images in the CD art celebrate cheap drugs and porn (with several drawings of topless women). In addition to inciting fans to make an obscene gesture, "Peace Sign/Index Down" arrogantly defends inappropriate behavior by arguing, "You can't do nothin' to me unless you [are] God." Authority is defied and God's name abused on "Guilty as Charged." With malice and a colorful vocabulary, lead singer Travis McCoy wishes bad karma on an ex ("Blinded by the Sun") and rails against the press, which he believes hates the band ("Don't Tell Me It's Over").

Summary Advisory

Despite a creative blend of hip-hop, pop and hooky instrumentals, The Quilt is an obscene patchwork deserving of its parental advisory.
