I have listened to this whole album through a few times, and after hearing A Man Called (E), I wasn't surprised at the good quality of this one. E has a very real sense of originality to his songs...when hearing them, it's almost as if he didn't even try to play good, it just came out that way. Standout tracks are Manchester Girl, Shine It All On, A Most Unpleasant Man (the best track, in my opinion), My Old Raincoat, and The Only Thing I Care About, and although all the other tracks are good as well, some just don't measure up to the others. But I must say that I do like "A Man Called (E)" a bit more than this one, but that's the thing - a BIT more. Broken Toy Shop is a great buy and an even better listen - if you like anything EELS have put out, this one's a good record to add to your collection...quite impressive.
