"Perhaps it was just a perfectly lovely time in my life, just turning 21 and going to a bar and drinking legally and all, but when I first saw this band at 'The Hole in the Wall' on Gualdalupe, I thought they were perfect! Seeing them made me think more of They Might Be Giants than Beatles; lead singers look similiar. I saw them a few years years ago in the warehouse district, they followed a poetry slam, but I guess I'm just too OLD now for that LOUD music these days. It's weird that they didn't have larger audiences when I used to see them.Anyway, they seem, at least on this album, to try to smash in a bunch of lyrics into a rhythmically small space. But the lyrics are fun; they play around with cliches. "She's a mystic, a writer and critic, oooh she must have read a book once." Gotta love that. World's boutique is such a pretty song. I also like "No one's better than someone when that someone's wrong." It's such a healthy attitude.And, although from listening to the intros of the different songs, it's difficult to tell which is which, there is a very nice melodic diversity on this album. The lyrics are printed in the liner notes, and it's a lot of fun to sing along to."Men who deserve the fate they got, always say it's sabotage, so I won't, but it was." Really, I love it."
