I checked out the track samples on iTunes. My general impression is that this album probably makes Chris Cornell's "Scream" album sound like Zeppelin IV.

That song Cheerfulness reminds me of the ZZ Top's song Tush
Someone said this album is better than Satellite Party, I'm not so sure.

Ya know, I felt the same way. But there are moments I didn't expect. Like the first track. I mean, it's still a bad album. But I'd give it a quick listen.

First of all, the length of the album and a total number of tracks are a total joke. If you want to make a "theatrical concept" about anything then sure as hell it has to be something more than miraculously squeezed out 30 minutes with tracks dating back to 2010. I don't believe Perry can hold a "concept" for 9 years nowadays, let alone for a month. I'm 99% sure many of the production decisions were made to artificially lengthen the songs, pushing it hard towards the half an hour mark, which looks more acceptable than, say, a 26 minute "longplay". The fact that Perry had to rehash other people's songs under his own name, despite claiming having a few "hours" of material is just sad. It could've been a decent little LP, but instead of that we got one of the most generic and bland sounding pieces of faux-pop this year; my special golden turd award goes to the opening track (a Sesame Street comparison is a good one... it's not vaudeville, it's clowns on xanax) and "Spend The Body" which is probably the most sleazy thing you can get from an aging ex-rockstar. I'd give it half a star for a sadistic fun factor, but to be honest, it's really all that's left when it comes to post-nowadays-Jane's Addiction history. Perry's just a fucking clown with his wannabe diva wife, handful of plastic surgeries, failed attempts at launching own brands, failed attempts at modelling, failed attempts at being a popstar, failed attempts at being relevant. And it's not like I hate the guys' guts, Perry always seemed to be a extraordinarily humble, sweet and warm guy and he's still like that in interviews, but damn, he's better off with a new or better manager these days. And we all know that occupation is probably handled by Etty.

tl;dr new album is shit 1,5/10

Kind Heaven is radical chic concept album.
"Frivolous political agitators" Perry and Etty go to a restaurant and change the world singing a karaoke song.

Had a big pot of soup with a hot lobster in it. I really am enjoying Boston this time. Having a chance to get out and see the city. So rich in history. Love imagining the revolutionaries living their lives and making plans for America.. On in an hour- must dress/ stretch.

Perry would always look much cooler if he wasn't wearing a fake face.

Perry thinks these kind heaven shows are groundbreaking because attendees get to see him sing mountain song while they eat dinner

actually the surprise they haven't mentioned yet is that perry and etty will be dining while performing .. instead of just downing wine on stage there will be lobster fed to each other while singing and slathering butter all over each other .. its going to be very sexy and revolutionize the take out / rave dining industry .. and it will NOT be karaoke .. chris cheney will be playing a bass along with a drum machine .. etty is going to hum daves guitar solos while perry samples food from random audience dinner plates ... they will be also be debuting a new viral hit called "are u gonna finish that?" .. there will also be a hologram of the twins on the nothing shocking album .. but with ettys head.

Lol! So fucking true. I had to drive from DC back to NJ yesterday and gave the record a listen for a few minutes with fresh ears. It's so awful. Some of the orchestral musical pieces are ok, But it is really bad. And yeah, Perry still comes across as kind of smart and funny in interviews, and still a rather deep thinking spiritual cat. So it's really mind boggling how this is the music he thinks goes with his ideas. My wife who I have dragged along to soooo many shows over the years said 6/7 was by far the worst and most embarrassing Perry show. I miss satellite party.

I heard Pirate Punk Politician on the national radio yesterday :)

Kinda funny of hearing the song on the radio while driving. Unbiased, and when you hear it just come on the radio, it didn't sound as bad as I remembered.
