Crash Test Dummies - God Shuffled His FeetThe Crash Test Dummies are very much proof that even if you break every compositional rule, you may actually end up with something remarkable, which they totally took to heart on their first two albums. lead singer Brad Roberts deep bass voice accentuates the forefront of these beyond rock and roll songs, transforming the common lexicon with his bizarre lyrics. Likewise, the instrumentation is no less counterintuitive for their platinum-selling second album “God Shuffled His Feet,” which is focused around the acoustic guitar. The band can be heard moseying into a country vibe, delivering a funeral dirge, or kicking out a Celtic jam. Still, it all comes together with a twisted delight that has been fabulously recorded and mixed. There certainly is room in your Desert Island Collection for this 1993 release, and maybe even for their debut 1991 “The Ghosts That Haunt Me.” Yet, having these albums may remind you why you may not want to get rescued from your island and returned to the complex world we live in.
