Let's say you're some Indie-savvy music snob who came across this cd by accident. Although ashamed of the 1 hit wonder status of the band, you can't help it. These songs will not get out of your head and you don't want them to. That's been my experience, and I'm certainly glad it was. Years of searching every area of music imaginable has produced very few albums as enjoyable as this one. I don't think I've ever had so many songs from one album continually stuck in my head. The songs are catchy, but not cheesy, melodic but not boring, and pensive, but not over-dramatic. For example "Wave motion gun", one of my favorites, takes the child-like notion of watching Starblazers, relates it to the loneliness and pain of addiction, and manages to keep it from being self-loathing dribble.
There's something about the sound of John Wozniak's voice and the simplicity of the songs, it's almost as if they create this nice, comfotable setting, and you get to go hang out there with every listen. The first album had that same aura about it, but this one is much more interesting. "Secret Squirrel", "It's Saturday", great little groovy, sort of light-hearted numbers add that kick the debut was lacking. It's nothing revolutionary or experimental, it's just a great cd. Which, unfortunately, does in fact make it a rarity. don't pass this one up.
