Culture Shock – “Ex’d Up”

Arabic, Burban, Hindi, Hip Hop, R&B, USA

SCORE: 7.4

A challenging effort from Culture Shock, featuring lashings of Auto Tune and a hypnotic beat, not to mention repetitive lyrics that worm their way into your brain. Like the weapons used to destroy shit in the video, it’s a blunt instrument of a song, with very little subtlety, but it’s brilliantly sequenced and highly energetic. That chorus is just plain weird, but it works so well simply due to it taking half an hour to figure out, by which time you’re hooked. Yes, it’s shallow and essentially meaningless, but it’s one to just listen to and enjoy on a purely superficial level. (Reviewed by Sohail)
