A collection of quirky, funny and mellow tunes, nuff' said.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"There are two types of quirky pop music.First, we have the mini-movements in music, such as the "New Romantics" (Duran Duran) or "The Baggy Trouser music" (Happy Mondays, Stone Roses) which made the eighties such a scary time to grow up in. Then we have the bands that transcend both musical genre and dodgy fashion statements. As soon as the opening track, the energetic "Esquire" kicks in (after one of the most bizzare introductions ever), you know that Lizard Music's belong to the second catagory. The sporadic use of other bands trademark touches throughout the album (in a subtle and tasteful(or stylishly distasteful)way) mixed with their own style reveal a band who embrace experimentation. The first track is a prime example of this, with Beachboys like harmonies in bits and the use of Gershwin tune for a few seconds in the guitar solo (at 4'03"). The album also has a healty sense of humour throughout the album,displayed in songs such as "Soft Focus A.M.","Depp In The Heart Of Tejas" and the secret track at the end, which incidently is the ideal track for getting rid of unwanted guests at the end of a night-in drinking party. Ultra-mellow tracks "Routine" and "Howard's Machinery", could easily appear on anybody's list of "music for chillin'" and add balance to this fine album."
