After 90 + releases, these guys never cease to amaze. dAS & Co. deliver 57, count 'em, 57 priceless tracks of commercials, mostly old jingles for familiar products (and some not so familiar) completely re-done in a most splendid fashion. Humorous, ironic and mostly unrecognizable, most tracks require ones full attention before you realize exactly what's going on. This is a monumental piece of work which features guests like G.X.Jupitter-Larsen (Haters), Miss Murgatroid, Brook Hinton, Jim Wilson and Bonnie McNairn (Voice of Eye), Rob, Robo and all your other favorites. And to think; It's only another phase in the work in progress that is B.C.O. INCREDIBLE!
