.99 Review - Krista Marie

Krista Marie - Jeep Jeep

The People's Take

"CONFUSED!" (1 star) – Who wants to hear this garbage?
by Kovac

"Catchy!" (4 stars) –
In a world of pop "country" stars, at least Krista Marie's got some twang to her songs! Definately catchy and better than all that pop music on country radio these days.

"Jeep Jeep" (5 stars) –
I love this song!!!

My Take *

Hey look! Cool! It's one of my old Myspace friends (remember Myspace??) made good! Man, I remember when she was just an up-and-comer sending me event invitations that I never looked at because of the 400 others in my inbox and begging me to vote for her in some contest or something. I remember her Colgate Country Showdown days (or was that Mary Christa?) and her weekly posting of rough demos of her cute but awkward Gretchen Wilson-lite songs. Wow, she's all grown up now. Just look at her all full of attitude on that hawg. She's looking confident and ready for the balloon festival circuit! I bet the couple of years since I paid attention to anybody's updates on Myspace have really benefited her material and recording presence. She's taken the leap to iTunes so at the very least, she's gotten herself a 2009 calendar. Let's take a listen! Ohhh. Wait - what? Uh oh. No. No. This is... Whoops. Sorry, almost lapsed into a copycat of Dan Milliken's review of the Oak Ridge Boys' "Seven Nation Army" but not for similar reasons. Beep beep, jeep jeep, seats seats? Didn't have to crack open the rhyming dictionary for that one didja? Tough and sexy, that's how he rolls! He's off the hook? Hoo me. Ah. Well, it brings back fond memories of 2005... and Tom.... and spam... and my 2000+ really close personal friends (I wonder how they're getting along these days?). I suppose "Jeep Jeep" should sound pretty okay in the smoky air of the Porkrinds Festival this June, but I'm just not feelin' it dawg. Uh oh, a friend just dropped me.

Total value: .20/.99

*Okay, so this review actually made me feel a little guilty to write and post. I honestly wish Ms./Mrs. Marie all the success in the world... just not with this turd of a song!

  1. Ah! I hate it when words are consecutively repeated in a line. So, just imagine how painful this song was for me to hear. Sorry to your myspace friend, but entertaining review, by the way. Bad press is better than no press?
