Plies, 'Goon Affiliated' (Slip-n-Slide/Atlantic)

5
Goon Affiliated
Critical Mass
Label: Slip-n-Slide/Atlantic

by Ben Detrick

A raunchy hobgoblin whose shrieked exhortations praise criminal cohorts and detail sexual conquests, Plies delivers a wildly funny-if wholly inconsequential-third album. There's "Rob Myself," where he juxtaposes his urge to steal with his accrued wealth, "Model," in which he describes his magnetic ?appearance, and "Goonette," a love song with an R&B hook, tender organs, and bobbing 808 kicks ("For her birthday I bought her a pink ski mask," he says of his soul mate). It's an entertaining, ribald affair, but, like most aggressively lowbrow humor, the jokes get old fast.
