The music does indeed have the same power and charm as the early rap music that he his tipping his hat to. Paranoid is comically eerie piece that takes you through Evil Eddie’s fears whether rational or otherwise, about everyone conspiring against him! In addition to the sharp hip hop tunes there are two intense and rocking instrumentals Fucking frenzy and the closing track The album also features Evil Eddie’s previous hits in the form of his (sort of) theme tune (Somebody Say) Evil and the patriotic anthem Queensland!
