Zebrahead – Playmate of the Year

Artist: Zebrahead
Title: Playmate of the Year
Label: Columbia
Rating: 6.5/10

These five guys from Orange County, California are as much rock as they are hip-hop. Zebrahead writes some pretty good hooks, which cover for their lack of excitable lyrics. “I Am” is fun. “Playmate Of The Year” doesn’t deserve to be the title track. “Now Or Never” just might find these guys on Mtv sometime.

“Go” isn’t half bad, and neither is “What’s Goin’ On?”. I just can’t tell if everything these guys do is clich or fresh. Zebrahead borrows from more genres than I can count. Somewhere in the soup of Zebrahead’s style is a damn good melodic fun.
