Guaranteed both to amuse and to confuse, Ten$ion is a masterpiece of kitsch
Now the music's bold enough to live up to the band's image, just about, even if it isn't often tasteful exactly
The group isn’t so much challenging expectations or creating deliberately shocking music as they’re hoping their absurdist creations will be taken as avant-garde
Despite more of the foul-mouthed impish fun, Ten$ion doesn’t offer much punch or cohesive power.
Not that anyone expected subtlety from Die Antwoord, but this is id rap at its worst, and even their excess lacks scope or imagination.
Die Antwoord are a stain on sense. Quite why a clamouring audience wants to see, let alone hear, anything by Die Antwoord is anyone's guess.
On Fatty BoomBoom; The video is colorful in South African spirit and the story it tells is bizarre. The group’s lyrics comprise of English blended in with Afrikaans, and except for the profanity that comes across very clearly, the rest of the words are nearly indecipherable. For all 5 minutes and 43 seconds the video lasted, I stared at my screen in complete awe, jaw dropped, not knowing whether to show disdain, be offended or both.
