Mouth Moods is the third mashup album by American musician and comedian Neil Cicierega, released on January 23, 2017.[citation needed] Like his previous mashup albums Mouth Sounds and Mouth Silence, its source material is primarily Top 40 hits from the late 20th and early 21st centuries. In addition to the return of samples from Smash Mouth "All Star", which were more carefully hidden in Mouth Silence, the song "One Week" by Barenaked Ladies appears as a recurring element of the album.[1]

ReceptionEdit

Mouth Moods was praised for being "just as compelling" as its predecessors,[2][3] as well as for its usage of various songs in pop culture history, as well as its "enhanced orchestral scope" over the previous two albums.[1]

The album includes the innuendo-filled track "Bustin", based on the Ray Parker Jr. song "Ghostbusters", which became somewhat of a viral hit before the album was announced and since.[4][5][6] The publication OC Weekly stated that it was "[a]bsolutely brilliant how an entirely new track can be created from the original elements while still containing its fun vibe."[7]
