"John Lurie knows how to lead a band. The Lounge Lizards play well together under his leadership, each contibuting a small piece to the whole. Though his sax does occasionally shine, the band as a whole is the focus for this album, as shown by the last tack, which features a narrative (spoken by Lurie) that ties this theme up and sends it back home. Jazz for quiet drinking."
Lizards snapping the shell!!

"In the record "Big Heart, Live in Tokyo" a new Lizard breed was in the mist of formation, less noir, more accessible but by no means "commercial.." In "No Pain for Cakes" the Lizards are out and anew, teeming with beautiful and boisterus sounds; some tunes are even quite sensual check out The Magic of Palermo and No Pain for Cakes. No space for muddy tunes, no time for boredom. "No Pain for Cakes" and "Voice of Chunk" represent the Lounge Lizards climax...for now!! The great guys are all there: Evan, Erik, E.J., Marc, Curtis, Dougie, Roy and John. It seems that instinctive forces worked among this line-up so the could effortlessly create this inspired and powerful music. I will end my review with this: I have two vinyl copies of this record...one is kept closed as a sacred jewel!! Unsatisfied, I bought a CD to play and abuse on a daily basis. I will not say more..."

"This is the most enjoyable, engaging, and complex disc of the Lizards' output, in my opinion. Some other reviewer somewhere describes it as "jazz for quiet drinking," and I sure wouldn't go THERE -- it's far too playful, strange, and celebratory. But buy it anyhow. "Bob and Nico" and "My Clown's on Fire" ... Gosh."
