Amazon MP3 Deal of the Day

The Book of Mormon soundtrack is $1.99 today.

It kills me that I paid full price for this a couple weeks ago, but now I have an excuse to offer my thoughts on the matter.

This show is offensive, vulgar, and blasphemous; but it's also hilarious, thought-provoking, and toe-tappingly catchy.  In short, it's everything you'd expect from its creators.  I might make a trip to NYC just to see it.

Here's an easy way to decide whether you should buy this album or not: if you can't imagine ever laughing at a song that makes light of female genital mutilation; then this might not be for you.  On the other hand, if you're intrigued by the fact that someone even tried to find the humor in such an offensive practice; then it will be worth every bit of your $2.
