One of the characteristics that caught my attention immediately is that the songs force the listener to be patient, which is accomplished using numerous different methods. Some songs (i.e. Everything to Me and Little Kid) start off with Ray or Kody singing in a low register, which sounds great. But its not until later in the song that the lead vocals reach a higher octave, usually accompanied with harmonic background vocals. And its these moments that transform the songs and are therefore the most memorable. And many of the tracks on the album lack a traditional chorus, yet there are still memorable melodic moments via little hooks in the middle or towards the end of the song. Even the songs that are purposely difficult to listen to (Creature from the Black Metal Lagoon and The First Time I Did Acid Was the Last Time I Did Acid) still have some melodic moments. In the end, patience pays off. Humor has always been a part the Bottlerocket mantra and Stay Rad! is no different. Yet there are extremely profound moments peppered throughout the silliness. One example comes via Stupid Song, a track that was written at the 11th hour. The song is about using music to escape the daily grind of life. But its hard not to recognize the extensive effect it will probably have on numerous listeners with lines like: So let me give you some of my advice, when the world aint treating you so nice, and all you wanna do is kill yourself, just grab that dusty record off the shelf and listen to another stupid song and I hope it helps you to forget your pain.
