LEN: Diary of the Madmen?



Anyone know what the deal is with this album, or does anyone have it? I love You Can't Stop..., especially Cryptik Souls Crew, Beautiful Day and Man of the Year. I've been waiting for thier followup, and I know they had a CD called 'We Be Who We Be' that was canceled awhile back.

Is this any good? If so, is there a cheaper place to get it? Amazon wants $25 for it, since it's an import.

Is this the group that had that somewhat-catchy-song-but-amazingly-annoying video for Steal My Sunshine?

Are there more good songs by Andrea True Connection they can rip off?

Yes. That's the first one I heard, but it's not my favorite at all. I was quite surprised how different from Steal My Sunshine the rest of the CD was.

The one tune they did with CC Deville on "can't stop" rocks.

Maybe try amazon.ca or HMV for alternative purchasing options.

I didn't know about this new cd.

I have "We Be Who We Be" and some of the tracks on that are on this cd.

I have two cds that came out before "You Can't Stop The Bum Rush".

They are called "Superstar" and "Get Your Legs Broke".

Am I the only one who was surprised how truly wretched the rest of the CD was compared to Steal My Sunshine?

And I don't mean to just blatantly threadcrap either, but I thought Steal My Sunshine was a brilliantly poppy tune, and when I brought home the CD I was astounded at how awful the rest was. I even gave it a year and tried it again, and wanted to poke my eardrums out with icepicks.

Am I crazy?

I never liked Steal My Sunshine. I thought that was one of the worst pop songs I ever heard. But I'd be willing to give them a try.

That's optimism I wouldn't have expected after the first sentence.



I'm not into rap, but I liked their "Sunshine" cd.

I was going to blame them for the wretched Titan A.E. soundtrack, and then I doublechecked and realized that was Lit, not Len. {grandpa simpson} Damn kids and their three-letter names. {/grandpa simpson}

Really? "You Can't Stop" is the only one I've ever been able to find. Then again Toledo OH isn't exactly a music hotbed. I'd love to hear those other discs.

Really. I picked up their first two on eBay and the last one is a promo from Half Price Books.

OK then, I'll look into it. Looks like one of the early ones is called "Get Your Legs Broke". Can you tell me the title of the other one? Are all three worth searching out?

the other is called "Superstar".

Gotta admit I haven't played them more than a few times and it's been a few years.

Yeah, but they had that creepy brother/sister thing going on before the White Stripes came out.

Theirs could be creepier since they're sometimes make it look like they're boyfriend/girlfriend.

If they did a song called "Incest Is Best In Da Hood" I'd worry.
