Synopsis

Album Description
The Brothers Mael originally released this gem in 1994 after a seven year respite. Released on Logic Records, there were no outside musicians on this outing, just the brothers doing what they do best. 3 hit singles yielded from the LP: "When Do I Get To Sing My Way", "When I Kiss You (I Hear Charlie Parker Playing)" and "Now That I Own The BBC". Just by the titles, you could tell that the brothers' wit was in full force! The track "Tsui Hark" actually features the Hong Kong director putting in a appearance.

Insane Genius At Its Best!!!
11/03/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the tradition of Danny Elfman and Frank Zappa, Sparks provides musical genius from another dimension. I consider this one of Sparks' finest albums, and a timeless treasure of listening pleasure. What can you say about an album that begins with "Gratuitous sax" and ends with "Senseless violins" other than WOW. The album combines great tunes with amazing lyrics. The Mael brothers seem able to turn anything into a song, as reflected by "Frankly, Scarlett, I don't give a damn" and "I thought I told you to wait in the car." In between the fun, there is some serious commentary, such as two of my favorites, "When do I get to sing 'My Way'" and "The ghost of Liberace." Find this album, buy this album, enjoy this album."
Excellent album!

"This album is part Ivan-style dance, and part Devo-style humour. I've heard three other Sparks albums, all from different stages of their career, and all have appealed to me. Check 'em out!"
