My opinion

"Value for money", it is a often-used slogan in place like the shopping-centre of Wijnegem, of in the supermarkets of Dunaldy (sic). Yet these temples for the buying frenzied get to swallow quite a bit of flack from Clement Peerens on the new songs of this EP+. Wijnegem receives a label as "Filiaal van de hel" (branch of hell) and in Dunaldy his wife has bought some terrible wine that gave him a headache.
"Value for money" could also be the slogan of this cd. Apart from the title-track "Vindegij mijn gat" (Don't you think my bum looks fat in this skirt?) and three other new songs there are no less than 9 extra tracks on it, the complete "Dikke Lu" and "Foorwijf" EP's including the Nacht und Nebel-cover "Beats of Love", or the complete works of Clement and his gang.
"Value for money" could also be a warning to the consumer : "If it's cheap, it's probably rubbish". Operating with a false moustache and a wig sometimes seems an alibi to unashamedly plunder the best of hard- & glamrock, boogie, wave & blues, blending it with an over-the-top portion of misogeny (hatred against women) and pub-talk. A joke is only a joke if people still laugh with it.
It's also clear that the older songs ("Pinokkio", "Loeten", "'t Is altijd iets met die wijven") are standing proud & strong, a thing which is unlikely to be said about the new songs.
"Value for money" is fortunately also applicable to the prize of the cd : these 13-tracks only cost the prize of an avarage 4-track. Shouldn't you be on you way ?

Sent-in Opinions :

"Zeker geen CP-eXit na de mini-albums "Dikke Lu" en "Foorwijf" voor Hugo, Bart en Ronny. Alhoewel er meer bonustracks dan nieuwe nummers op "Vinde gij mijn gat" staan, valt deze derde CD weer in de smaak van de vele 'Leugenpaleizers'. Ik vraag me als welopgevoede mens wel af of die metamorfose enkel dient om zo op 'Waainegem', 'Denaldy' of 'zaogende waaiven' te kappen of zit er echt meer achter? Nee, dan zegt de fijnere humor van Matthysen en Peeters zelve me meer.
'Bangelijk' op fuiven en concerten, maar overdreven voor de huiskamer. En te weinig nieuwe nummers voor wie de twee vorige plaatjes al had. Zij hard, ik ook."

This album in the press:

- Metro (De Morgen) : "Or how the "pop-expert" from het Leugenpaleis can live his AC/DC-fixation out in the real world. Mr. Peerens is the most women-friendly songwriter in Flanders. It's pure poetry. And exiting too.".
- sf in RifRaf : "Finally a point of light in the scene from Antwerp that gets ever more boring (K's Choice and the likes), more irritating (Zita Swoon and co) and more overrated (dEUS and branches). No arty-farty bullshit of boring posing in gangsta/junk-style here. No, no : CPex say it like they think and are who they are. Cracking tracks, and even more cracking lyrics."
- Weekend-Knack : "The four brand new songs of the Clement Peerens Explosition - an alibi to get to be a moron for a tour long - make you smile, but the magic has worn off."
