Beat it Loose by Mel Gibson and the Pants

These guys really are one of a kind.

Artwork for w/ Guitar

Mel Gibson and the Pants is that strange child no one gets at first, but eventually realizes their genius(ness)…

I reviewed MGatP’s album (w/ Guitar) about two months back, but didn’t give Beat it Loose (a song on the album) much thought because I wasn’t quite sure what I felt about it, yet. Well, a good two months later and I finally have a solid opinion. Beat it Loose is becoming one of my favorite songs by the group/band. At first, I was a little skeptical about the beat, like I am with a lot of other MGatP songs, but it grew on me… like a lot of other MGatP songs. The song features Doomtree‘s Cecil Otter & Harold Sanders Jr. (MC for MGatP) on the mic. The two work well together, and do a phenomenal job of flowing off each other and the beat (which I can’t imagine is easy). This may not be something you enjoy at first, but give it time… trust me, it’ll grow on you… or at least one of the songs on this album will.

Favorite Parts in the Song:
1:08 – love Sander’s mackalicious voice… best way I can describe it :)
1:51 – Otter hits it at the perfect time
2:25 – around 20 seconds of scratchin’ then Sander’s chimes in
3:49 – another ingenious ramble by Sanders (lasts around 40 secs)
(fast forward to these spots to see what I mean)
