Andrew W.K. is a guy you might have seen in some rather awkward/awesome music videos in the early 00s. Not surprisingly most people choose to ignore and/or hate him, the reason being that he and his music are highly hazardous to anyone’s cool, something that Icelanders care a great deal about.
The album is, quite obviously, made up of cover versions of Japanese pop songs. The result is silly, like the very concept of pop music, and fun like pop music is supposed to be. The album includes many extremely catchy songs, some in fact too catchy, but what else can you expect from a cover album of this sort.
The album is not being imported to Iceland, so downloading it would be the easiest way to obtain it… don’t do that, though. That would be illegal.
