Saw that this album was at a dead heat of 2-2 in star ratings (2 5's and 2 4's) and thought I'd tip the rating in the correct direction.
I was not going to do anything like this at first, but whilst routing through the many sparks albums on here, I suddenly remembered this record and had a vague recollection that it was one of my faves when Im into my personal annual sparks season.
Lo and behold, It suddenly all came flooding back. I want my own maustache,I want to play angst in pants very loud and i really want to laugh and dance at the same time.
Only this record in the entire history of recorded albums achieves this - from end to end (Flight of the conchords came close....but didnt quite tick the originality box.....)
There fore it is quite simply one of the best albums of all time and must be purchased.
New to sparks?
Buy this now.
Already a fan?
This is better than Kimono, lil beethoven and propaganda put together (and i rate those albums highly indeed - alright each of those are diffeent and from different era defining albums but still.......this one is the one I would pick if I had to listen to only one sparks album for the rest of my life.......touch wood this will never happen of course......errr..yes youve guessed it.im a proper sparks fan indeed.........)
If all else fails, this album will cheer you up....and right now, theres alot of you out there who could do worse than stick this on.......ok Pet sounds would work too -but this one would have that little edge called 'edgy weirdo, stuff it Im gonna sing what i like, but in cool and witty and very 80s dodgy hair-do way.
