Another change of direction for the Mael brothers, this time to a kind of Kraftwerk-esque minimal synthpop. The album kicks off with their biggest US hit - Cool Places, it's success certainly helped by the inclusion of guest vocals by Jane Wiedlin (her group The Go-Go's were huge stars in the USA at this time). The song itself is breezy and slight, and not demonstrative of how utterly wonderful Sparks can be at their best. The album's other single - All You Ever Think About Is Sex is better and funnier, with classic Ron Mael lines such as "Think about the places; We've had our little fun; In the church at Christmas; Busted by that nun". With other lyrical highlights such as "And you're the only girl I ever met who hates Hey Jude; Maybe that's the reason that I'm so in love with you" (Rockin' Girls) and "I went to high school; And majored in looking real bad; I got a real ugly mom; And a real ugly dad" (I Wish I Looked A Little Better), this is definitely one of Sparks' funniest albums.
