Still 'The Best'

Fern and Marty are back with another hard hitting, fun loving, spiritually challenging, and God-blessing album. At first listen Misfits 2 is light and flaky like a Tenderflake pie crust, whether it be talking about a "Coogi Sweater" or being "Awkward," but upon listening closer it is deep and rich like a chocolate bobka.
The length of the album is as perplexing and misfit-like as Marty and Fern. Ten tracks is too long to really be considered to be an EP, but maybe a couple tracks short of being deemed a full-length album.
The beats hit hard, the majority of the production is attributed to Dove Award winning producer D-Flow, and in classic D-Flow style this album goes hard. It seems with each album that Marty and Fern release a new anthem. What started with "Strt Trbl" continued with "Bang" and on this album it is "Cops." The guys are unashamed of their faith and willing to shout it and start a movement.
There is no comparison in current music to Social Club, they stand alone in a category of their own. Just as Beautiful Eulogy has cornered the folk-rap scene, Social Club stands alone in the misfit-rap scene. On Misfits 2, the lyrics are original and the themes they touch on vary widely. The production is amazing and the features are perfectly placed garnishes on the plate. from Andy Mineo on "Coogi Sweater" to Marz Ferrer on "My Eyes Burn" to rapper/producer Gawvi on "Social Club Is NOT Dead." This album is perplexing, there will be people that love it and people that don't care for it. It may actually be that, "Social Club is the best."
