"I took a short trip back a few years (a lot few), I was 25 and my favorite CD was God Shuffled His Feet by The Crash Test Dummies. This was the second offering from the band, and a great follow-up to their successful debut "The Ghosts that Haunt Me" which featured the hit Superman's Song.
Superman's Song was always a favorite, but tunes like God Shuffled His Feet, Afternoons and Coffeespoons, In the Days of the Caveman, Here I Stand Before Me, and many other tracks on this CD just connect with the wondering human being in all of us. They're songs filled with questions and concerns, but also filled with a fire that strikes a chord of life.
The musicianship is top notch, and production is clean. I favor the sound of a tight rhythm section with a crisp snare; there is no shortage of syncopation here, and the drummer is outstanding. Nice acoustic guitar tones, great piano, and enchanting harmonies. Brad Roberts is known for his deep vocals, and here he really leaves his mark, especially on the most popular tune Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm.
Lyrically this album is refreshing. The writing is humble, inquiring, and clever, and most importantly devoid of cliche. This is music that makes you think, helps you understand and gives you a boost.
I still find God Shuffled His Feet to be one of my very favorite CDs. If you're into interesting, original, and good music you won't be disappointed."
Great CD 11 years later.

"I got this on tape in '93 and lost it. I found it for really cheap on CD and decided to get it. It's a great CD with catchy lyrics and tunes. The quirkyness is missing for music nowadays.A note to duanekill, Superman's Song isnt even on this CD. If you want to make a negative review, make it on the right album."
