Brougham
Artist: Brougham
Title: Le Cock Sportif
Label: Warner Bros.
Rating: 6.5/10

Straight out of Silicon Valley, otherwise known as Palo Alto, California, are music trespassers Brougham. They mix hip-hop with rock just enough to earn some Kid Rock comparisons.

Right from go, Brougham gets burnt on “Don’t Speak English”, but then mellows on “7th Grade”. “Main Chick” is a funky odd love song. “Murked Rock” has the early Beastie vibe, but all the kiddies will think of Brougham as nothing but Kid Rock wannabes. The album winds down with “Sangoria” and its ’60’s spirit.

Brougham is an acquired taste. I really didn’t get it, but after a few listens I found myself being won over to their side.
