My first taste of Sparks

"Long ago, when I was about 11 or so, my brother mentioned Sparks "curious" music. A couple of years later I picked up the LP version of this CD and it quickly became the record that stayed on the turntable. Sparks are so removed from mainstream in arrangement, use of instruments, and incredibly clever lyrics and titles that the novice might view them as a sideshow act. But they're the real deal. I like to think it's about social commentary but I probably shouldn't take it too seriously."
I Don't Know Why I Like This Album

"This was the first Sparks album I bought. It was about 25 years ago at a very strange record store where all the albums were a dollar. I picked it up because I heard good reviews of Sparks. When I listened to it I felt good, but it seemed really bland even for an 11 year old . Now after buying many of their other albums it seems even blander. Besides "Pretending To Be Drunk", the songs are all pedestrian and very simple musically. For some reason I am drawn to it though and whenever I put it on it brings a smile to my face. It is not even in a league with other works of theirs like "A Woofer In Tweeters Clothing", "Angst In My Pants", "Kimono My House", etc..., but screw that it is fun and I recommend it to anyone just wanting to be cheered up."

"I think A Song That Sings Itself is the best song on this CD. Pulling Rabbits is a great song as well. The lyrics to Progress are exceptional. Love Scenes is another Sparks classic."
