Maserati VII - Very Good, Based on 3 Critics

Pitchfork - 77
Based on rating 7.7/10

In the Simpsons episode "A Milhouse Divided", Marge and Homer renew their vows. Homer's self-written vows include a series of "sickness and in health" dualities, one of which is "in quiet solitude or blasting across the alkali flats in a jet-powered, monkey-navigated…" Rev. Lovejoy doesn't finish the sentence, but you get the picture. And if you've ever wondered what it would feel like to blast across the alkali flats in a jet-powered, monkey-navigated something-or-other, Maserati VII gives you the chance to find out, if you play it at sufficient volume.

It’s a matter of discipline rather than simple repetition, and even if it’s hard to sing along, that doesn’t mean there’s not a hook.
