Love, Loss and Auto-Tune - Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

Pitchfork - 73
Based on rating 7.3/10

If all Swamp Dogg was was weird, would we still care? The man born Jerry Williams Jr. found LSD and Frank Zappa in the late 1960s, and these discoveries prompted his transformation into R&B's weirdest weirdo. He planted his freak flag on 1970's ebulliently funky Total Destruction of Your Mind and the following year's Rat On, with its indelible cover image of the Dogg happily riding a giant rodent.

Saying that a Swamp Dogg album is kind of weird is a bit like saying there was a Tuesday last week; given Jerry Williams, Jr.'s frequently bent take on the conventions of Southern soul, you expect the Dogg to deliver something eccentric. But 2018's Love, Loss, and Auto-Tune is weird in a way even his fans won't expect. Since Williams debuted the Swamp Dogg persona with 1970's Total Destruction to Your Mind, his music has been steeped in vintage Southern soul and funk, with Williams pouring his philosophizing about love, sex, and society at large over the top.
