"Ah, Cake. Bill Graham once said of the Grateful Dead "They're not the best at what they do, they're the only ones that do what they do". That statement is just as true for these guys. Cake stands alone and is damned proud of it, too. They never "conformed" or "settled" in order to make a grab at stardom. They do what they do and you can like it or you can f off, plain and simple. That's only one of the things you've got to like about this band. Everything they are is laid bare for you to see.
As far as actual information about this album, what can be said? It's a low budget production on a low budget record label. Frankly, the sound quality is less than mediocre. Despite that, don't write this release off. Cake is almost as brilliant here as they are on every release they've done since. There are a few misses here unlike on some of their latest works that could be deemed brilliant from start to finish, but the worst song on this album is still better than some of what's considered the "best" stuff out there today.
For the record, I would have rather given 3.5 stars, but that's not an option. The three star rating has more to do with the recording quality than the music itself.
If you're a passing fan, you can't go wrong with Comfort Eagle or Fashion Nugget. If, however, you have any more than a moderate like for these guys, there's no excuse for not owning this album (or any of them for that matter). When it comes to Cake, it's all good."
IN THE GARAGE WITH A PEICE OF......

Didn't see that one coming aye?
This is the first album from the pseudo stoner indie rock band cake. For any of you familiar with their biggest hit album Fashion Nugget it may be a little strange (I tend to believe that if you know of other albums other than Nugget, then you probably know this one already...)
Cake have a cult fan base, mainly of people that like what can be defined as light and quirky music. In most later outings the band has a lot of funky beats going down along with a brass section and keys and other weird types of rythyms. I've always dug them.
Their first album is real lo-fi, and it sounds mainly like it could have been recorded in a garage, but the trademark brass is still there, along with a lot of catchy tunes, that I actually find more enjoyable than their '95 chart crasher. The lyrics are funny at times and sometimes just out to lunch but that kind of thing is usually ok in my book.
You've got your grand piano. You don't don't even play piano. I'm the one that plays piano. But you part the water.
Really opens your mind up, huh?
Anyway, quirky music, thats pretty darned good. If you like a stripped down kind of sound, you'll dig it. If you like it I also recommend another underated album of theirs Prolonging The Magic from '97. Liked that one better than Fashion Nugget too."
