"Right out of the chute the male vocal cuts right into a slightly sarcastic verse about the pop industry. The song is produced with all the latest bling, bling and in this case its perfect. Some remarkable keyboard work fills out some of the segue sections with wonderful depth. With great harmonies and beats, this tune delivers all it was supposed to and more. There are real musicians hiding behind this pop spoof wonderland. This group parodies pop better than pop itself and if you look into its corners their true musicality can't help but leak out. Great idea done superbly!"
- Jeff Tassin, Emmy Award winning songwriter and performer reviewing
"Alchemy (Shit to Gold)" on Garageband.com
You may not like this music. But one thing is for certain: you won't be able to get the infectious sound of I Hate This Place out of your head. The brainchild of Sean Nerney (Producer, The Old Kings, Some May Not Be), I Hate This Place elegantly brings together every electro-bubblegum-synthpop nightmare you've been having recently, complete with cheesy 80s synth lines, vocoding, offbeat and irrational lyrics and extreme autotuning to the sensational debut EP "One Minute Mayhem".
"Excellent...I liked the overall production, melody and sequencing especially with the synths. "
-John Estrada, producer and songwriter of Trinimusicman reviewing
"Deep Sea Love!"
Listen to the samples of "Deep Sea Love!" and "Miserable Girl" for a good taste of what I Hate This Place is like. Hopefully you'll find it scrumptious and delightful. All the album's tracks are precariously held together by several hilarious (and somewhat disturbing) vocal vignettes ("The Phone Call", "The Turtle Song").
"This CD makes me want to have your children!"
