What's the first thing you notice about Steel Panther's third opus, All You Can Eat?
Well, it's not just the hilarious, arena-ready lines like "Fill someone with goo at the gloryhole" or "there was so much love on your face I couldn't see the tears"—though those remain rather priceless to say the least. The biggest thing you should take note of is just how immensely talented these four musicians are. "Pussywhipped" starts with a classically inspired acoustic intro by Satchel before snapping into mind-blowing thrashed-out fireworks. The raw musicianship stands staggering throughout the entire album. Lexi Foxx's low end on "Gangbang at the Old Folks Home" throbs perfectly in time with Satchel's rip-roaring riff as Stix Zadinia holds down an airtight groove on "Bukkake Tears". Meanwhile, one of the biggest anthems on the album is "The Burden of Being Wonderful". Michael Starr's voice takes center stage and soars with gems like, "I'm just a Maserati in a world of Kias". This truly is a top-notch collective of musical badasses though, and that's what everybody needs to recognize.
Underneath all that "goo" is one of the most accomplished and purely talented bands on the scene.
