Cake goes the distance

"The third Cake disk, cleverly titled "Prolonging the Magic", hits hard with thirteen amazing tracks.The album starts off with "Satan Is My Motor", a song laced with parody and clever lyrics. Most feel the song is a direct refrence to the dark prince himself. Could it be?A soothing rock song "Mexico" follows, creating an atmosphere worthy of a well lit night club.Never There, one of the strongest tracks on the disk follows this, followed by "Guitar" and "You Turn The Screws".A few happy-go-lucky songs come along. "Walk On By", and "Sheep Go To Heavan" have great beats, and clever lyrics once again.The most creative track is "When You Sleep". A song about where people put their hands while in the act of sleeping could only be created by this sacrimento quartet."Hem Of Your Garment" is next, quoting the Bible, not referring to it. The Bass is heavy and the chorus is amazingly catchy."Alpha Beta Parking Lot" is calming, and chilling; creating a mood of joyous sorrow. The song leaves an impression long afterwards - much like the aftertaste of a pickle.Afterwards is "Let Me Go", a love song that proves a point, while making you bob your head."Cool Blue Reason"'s lyrics are chilling, and mark your mind with footprints. The song instills something of a sad dilemna.And finally, the disk comes to a close with "Where Would I Be". A touching Love song that, while being a love song, still packs some amazing bass and drums. The eerie sounding introduction makes you lift your head. Beautiful music, Great Lyrics, Amazing C.D."
