    Never listened to this and I never will as I don't want to spoil how I imagine this to sound... long-time fan of the cover art, no music could do it justice.

    I can't be mad with this making the list, because that cover art is so facemelting. But hands up Strutters, who has *actually* given this is a spin?

    I honestly thought this might make the Top 10, given how quintessentially Strut it is.

    The name of it might be better than the cover art, all things considered.

    I've just watched that Youtube video and it's the weirdest shit I've seen in a good while. I'm beginning to think that Big Bear is many, many levels above the Strut.

  • I used to own this...disappointingly, the music is not laughable.

    Somebody sold and got this as a heatrock from the Haiti earthquake charity. Who bought it? Come forth.

    Exactly. The cover is so perfect, the music can only be a let-down.

    I peeped the video. I was really hoping for the boom-bap to drop over the loop of the grizzly bear growling.

    Fans of this cover would greatly benefit themselves by doing an image search for Lil Flip's first album. The cover looks like a box of Lucky Charms with Flip decked out like a leprechaun grubbing a bowl of iced-out pieces.

    Love that fake promo video. One of my all-time favorite Internet inventions.

    Without ever hearing it I know that I love this record more than probably half of my actual collection. I would never sully my relationship with Big Bear by actually listening to this LP, it's too pure the way it is.

  • Controller_7Controller_7 4,052 Posts
    I showed this cover to a coworker at the library and he loved it. He was cracking up and then he asked this very quiet, shy young girl that works there "hey _______, what do you know about Big Bear? He's doin thangs."

    She, totally disinterested, said "that's nice for him."

    It was so funny the way she said it.

  • Wow really...? I've always thought that this album cover was a joke, a spoof, or something. The truth hurts. Question though; are the bears helping him "do thangs"?

    That promo vid is soooooo fucked up. I love it.

    This list lost all it's credibility with this one. You're joking right? This is better than BJ One, Hard 2 Earn, Sabbath??? All of a sudden I hate this list.

    The list is not all about musical quality. It's more about importance to strut culture. Things that got a lot of talk or were part of hillarious jokes at some point.

    Music lists are not in short supply. This is a strut 100, which to me, is what makes it interesting and not just a rehash of something you could find somewhere else.

    I'm new around these parts, so missed any previous talk about this album.
    gotta say thanks to the strut for showing me - that cover is so good.
    I got no real desire to hear it, but the cover makes me wish I was Doin' Thangs.
