"you've found it in the Dickies! Their camp is semi-reminiscent of They Might Be Giants with an older twinge; a kind of kitsch sense of humor. It's refreshing to find something that stands out from all the grunge and electronica. Something that says "Hey, music is fun! Listen to THIS!""
More pop than punk, not a problem though.

"Throughout this album, the Dickies deliver some of their best, quirky, pop-rock originals. Songs like "Monster Island", "Cross Eyed Tammy", "Going Homo", "Booby Trap", "Monkey See, Monkey Do", "Caligula" and "Magoomba II" just get caught in my head and stay there.
But 2 songs I could do without. I don't know why they started this effort with a cover version of "Hair", and the song "Dummy Up", in my opinion, is the worst song they ever did. (I think it sounds like bad "Wham". The opening beat of the song sends me scrambling to the CD player or turntable to get it off ASAP).
What a rotten world that doesn't reward bands like "The Dickies" with riches beyond their wildest dreams.
