As far as M.O.D. goes it’s been about four years since the singer released an album with them and the new release finds him with a couple of new members along with music that raises the level of acerbic wit that he is most known for. The singer is second to none when it comes to the blending of social commentary with a wry sarcastic twist and we first heard this with S.O.D. most vividly during the “Ballad Of Jimi Hendrix” where the beginning chords of “Purple Haze” would begin only to be interjected by the only words in the song – “You’re Dead”. After achieving fame under that group’s tour he created M.O.D. and released some of the most politically incorrect tunes on “U.S.A. for M.O.D.” such as “Spandex Enormity” (a lament about obese women wearing spandex pants) and the supremely unacceptable by today’s standard’s “A.I.D.S.” (with a real meaning I will spare the readers from seeing – just look it up). Needless to say once you heard what Milano had to say about anything you either loved him or hated him but could never easily forget him.
