Regardless, after hearing "Hold The Line" I came away unimpressed. But then I heard "When You Hear The Bassline", and my interest returned. Quickly. It's a dancehall banger, producing images of big booty-ed women winding up and down like they've never winded before. It's hard, it's fast, it's rough, and - like the rest of Guns Don't Kill People...Lazers Do - it's fucking FUN.
Oh, and it made me re-listen to "Hold The Line", which I then realized was one of the most exhilarating songs of the year. Thanks, Ms. Thing.
Check the mp3 below, and pick up the album (which dropped yesterday) here.
