    On THIS GIGANTIC ROBOT KILLS's opening track, "True Player for Real," a self-deprecatory parody of hip-hop brag-a-thons, MC Lars announces his "childhood hero" "Weird Al" Yankovic on accordion with a "this means we made it, guys." There's both intentional irony and genuine oh-my-gosh exuberance in his voice, a reaction that explains both essence and appeal of the hip-hop satirist from Berkeley. He's an expert at endearingly poking fun at fads and fops; the title track gently prods those who long for the days of third wave ska while "Hipster Girl" accurately depicts Brooklynites o.d.'ing on trendiness. THIS GIGANTIC ROBOT KILLS breaks little new ground, but that hardly matters as MC Lars is simply one of the best in the nerdcore biz and the record is pure candy fun.

  • Critic Reviews
    Alternative Press (p.142) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The finest collaboration comes on 'O.G. Original Gamer,' which features fellow geeks MC Frontalot and Jonathan Coulton; the title track is a great example of nerdcore done right."
