The RABBI IS DEAD(2011)

Rock - Indie/Low-Fi

Steve Lieberman, otherwise known as The Gangsta Rabbi, proclaims himself The King of Jewish Punk. His style of music is not for everyone, and listeners will know whether it's for them or not in fairly short order. The sound quality leaves much to be desired and the musicianship itself is nothing to write home about. Lieberman's style is geared more towards garage punk fans, as these qualities are, quite frankly, part of the art of the genre. Lieberman's atonal and nasally vocals remain constant throughout his album The Rabbi Is Dead and the pace of the songs rarely change. It becomes difficult to differentiate between tracks at times, and although another reviewer stated his music is "captures topics of the fall of commercial radio, unfair payroll taxes, puppies, racial prejudice, zoftic ladies, Jewish holidays and STDs," listeners will likely never know this since most of the vocals are completely unintelligible. The art of garage punk embraces the chaotic and reckless side of music. There is an air of abandon about Lieberman's music that will call out to music lovers familiar with the genre, but for those not in the know, his music will likely offend and frighten. This being said, Lieberman does pull off the garage punk sound exceptionally well. A muddy sound, indistinguishable vocals and a hodgepodge of soundscapes are what defines this artist, and tracks like "MCTMT," "A Dove Flies Over Baghdad," "Copeland, Summers & Stink" and "I'm No Freddie Mercury" are only the beginnings of Lieberman's arsenal.
