ALLSTON, MA – Mixed reviews from various local taste-makers have plagued the latest release from The Ninjas. Of the reviews, Hello Ninja drummer Anthony Geehan responds, “Not everyone’s going to think that the seeds we plant will grow into roses, and we respect that. Still, he admits, “It is a little disappointing. We were hoping to convince all the non-believers out there.”
In the interest of impartial journalism, a majority of Hello Ninja consented to re-post responses from their most outspoken critics. “I don’t understand why we’re doing this,” argues Ninja front woman Cat Basile. “I already gave the track my seal of approval. ‘All the Mad Men’ is a 2:40 shot of rock ‘n roll, with lyrics and everything!”
“An interesting mix of long winded lyrics and power pop vocals.”
Stephen Bailey, Beat Surrender
“A very cool rock and roll tune with a B-Side [‘Back of my Mind’] that’s chemically addicting.”
Kevin James, Not A Tad Bad Flim Co.
“One, one hit single. Ah, ah, ah, ah.”
Count Von Count, Vampiric Lord of Numbers
“This song reminds me of toys, which are illegal, immoral, and unlawful!”
Burgermeister Meisterburger, Baron of Sombertown and anti-fun advocate
“Hello Ninja’s new single, ‘All the Mad Men’ is nothing like a Christmas with no snow, and therefore, completely undesirable.”
Heat Miser, Green Christmas supporter and Lord of Heat
Abominable Snowman, Terror of the North Pole
When asked his opinion of Hello Ninja’s polarizing new release, Official Hello Ninja Blogger Luke Cassidy offered a succinct summation.
“If you enjoy fast-paced rock and roll hits at discount prices, then pick up the $2 Hello Ninja single from any number of upcoming Ninja shows. On the other hand, if your main pursuit in life is to ruin Christmas, I suggest you let this one slide.”
