Last will and testament of a great band
02/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Popular opinion has it that this fourth and final Wonder Stuff record is supbar and easily ranks as the group's worst effort. I've always disagreed with this sentiment - and never moreso than I do now, some seven-plus years after its release. I think the lyrics are among the best that Miles penned while fronting The Wonder Suff, and the music is self-assured and confident. True, it's not as "fun" an album as some of their earlier work, but that was never the intent. It serves as the last will and testament of a truly great band. It commands respect and should be listened to with reverence. As Miles writes on "Sing the Absurd" - "I can reflect on the days when respect had nothing to do with behavior, and I can recall a day when we'd all laugh in the face of our failure." CFTMI is anything but a failure."
