CHERUB is a duo from Nashville, Tennessee that formed in 2010. Members include Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber. Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence is their fourth studio album release and second under the Columbia Records label.

Let me start off by saying that I'm a huge CHERUB fan and I was really looking forward to their new album. Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence drags for most of the first half and doesn't start grooving until around track five. CHERUB never wanders too far from their drugs and sexually innuendo lyrics, but they don't seem to be having as much fun here. Some of the beats feel modestly inspired, and you can't help but think that perhaps they needed a little more time to recharge their creative batteries. But once the record gets going there are pleasures to be found such as "Dedicated to the Bubble," "Sensation," and "Outside Myself." Though Bleed Gold, Piss Excellence carries just enough charm to make the whole experience somewhat worthwhile, it's the unfortunate missteps that make much of the album less engaging. Just don't expect anything groundbreaking.
