"I first stumbled upon this album when a friend sent a tape of it to me along with Pee's rare "Salt Garden" single (where can I find this!?!?). I was immediately impressed. Pee has smooshed together a number of songs and interludes for this CD. Most are high-energy, a bit quirky, and unique sounding. Comparisons to the Pixies are inevitable, but Pee really can't be compared with anybody. They have the tempo switches of a math rock band, the simplicity of an indie band, and the guitar licks of...of...of Pee. The result is a unique sound that is often accessible without coming anywhere close to selling out. Standout tracks are "I Hop", "Treed", "San Salvador", and "Bruce Loves Big Star", among others. Following the final song "Kelso", there are a number of 10 second silent tracks, and sandwiched between are a short instrumental at track 66, then a nearly 8 minute instrumental at track 90, and some white noise to close out the CD on track 99.Sadly, the last I heard was that Pee broke up a few years ago. Their follow up to this CD is called "The Roaring Mechanism" and can also be found here on amazon.com, but is listed under P.E.E. It's not as good as this one, but has a few standout tracks that make it a must for Pee fans."
Good indie rock. Slightly askew, and quirky.

"This band reminds me somewhat of the Pixies, writing atypical and aggressive, yet melodic songs. Short too with male and female vocals (i love the girl's singing especially). All the songs (a lot!) are good, but some are occasionally wonderful."
