"It's Time To Party," the 1st tune off of i am getting rainy, opens with a rapid-fire guitar line — not anything fancy, only a couple crunchy energy chords to acclimate the ears — repeated two times ahead of a booming bass drum joins in to supply a quarter-note countdown. A faint, It's Time To Party," the 1st music off of i am getting rainy, opens with a rapid-fire guitar line — not anything fancy, only a couple crunchy strength chords to acclimate the ears — repeated two times prior to a booming bass drum joins in to supply a quarter-note countdown. A faint, swirling influence intensifies with every one bass kick and, by means of the 8th one, the ears have prepped themselves for the steel mayhem they're approximately to obtain. while all of it drops, and the joyous onslaught of 100 guitars is eventually learned, you'll need to forgive your ears for being duped right into a fake feel of protection, simply because it's that moment intensified drop a couple of seconds later — the only the place but extra guitars take place and Andrew W.K. slam-plants his vocal flag through screaming the song's titular line — that actually floods the mind with endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, and no matter what else formulates invincibility.

Polished to a shiny overdubbed-to-oblivion sheen, the party-preaching i am getting rainy didn't catch the zeitgeist of rock on the flip of the century; it captured the timelessness of juvenile, as energized, extraordinary, and unapologetically silly as ever. With insights from acquaintances and remarkable support from the mythological maniac himself — whose sermon and dad sensibilities proceed to polarize — this publication chronicles the sound's evolution, uncovers the relevance of Steev Mike, and examines how Andrew W.K.'s inviting, inclusive lyrics create the final word shared adventure among artist and viewers.
