I first heard this album a few years ago when a colleague played it at work. I very rarely like a whole album the first time I listen to it, but this one was an exception. I raced out and bought a copy, and it is still one of the favourites in my collection. The lyrics are originally refreshing - it's great to find an artist who can sing about something other than love. The album is light hearted, comical, and guaranteed to put you in a good mood. Every song is completely different, but every one is individually brilliant. I don't often listen to lyrics, but in the case of this album I can recite virtually every word. Brad Roberts' gravelly voice suits the lyrics perfectly and is never tiresome. I read a review which said this album was the Dummies' best work, and I wholeheartedly agree. I can't really compare them to anyone else because their style is so different, but if you liked 'Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm' or 'Afternoons and Coffeespoons' on the radio, then rest assured you'll like the rest of the album.

Im a guy with 100's of cd's, 100's vinyl. Music is my life! I can never answer the question "If you had 10 albums for life, which ones would you take?" Its physically impossible. But i must say this album i wouldn't forget. I got into the Crash Test Dummies through my Dad. Theres not 1 track i wouldn't want to listen too. The lyrics are very amusing and random. The music itself, is wonderfully constructed with all sorts of sounds. I do own a few of the albums by the Crash Test Dummies, but nothing will EVER beat this album. They can try the hardest but this just wouldn't be as good. This is a must buy, for sure!

What can i say? Brad Roberts has the most distinctive voice i have ever heard,Ben Darvill has immense talent on the guitar and Ellen Reads harmonies are beautiful. Initially bought the album for the song 'MMM MMM MMM MMM' (incidentaly my favourite song ever - brads voice and ellens haunting harmonies make it incredibley powerful) but found other gems in 'Afternoons and Coffeespoons' and 'In the days of the caveman' to name but two. Truly, in my opinion, one of the greatest albums of the 1990s and i strongly recommend it to anyone who is tired of manufactured rubbish and wants to restore their faith in music! An absolute Gem!

My brother bought this album when it came out, and for years I'd only listen to "Mmm (etc)". One day - about four years ago - I decided to put it onto my MP3 player and listen to the whole thing.

As with all great albums it took a lot of listens to start to appreciate it. Slowly one track after another started to stand out until the only song I had little interest in was "Mmm".

This sounds mad, but this album has an almost spiritual affect on me. I can't easily describe it. I imagine it's how those of such a disposition feel when they go to church and watch incredible Gospel singers!

Anyway, brilliant album. Pity their others aren't nearly as good.

I bought this album after I'd heard 'MMM MMM MMM MMM' on the radio. This is one of quite a few stand out tracks on the album, my favourite one being 'How does a duck know?' This is certainly Dummies most accessible album and IMO their best by some way. Brad's voice is certainly more distinctive than on their first album and the overall quality of the album is far better. I don't think there's a bad track on the album and I don't think that Dummies will ever beat this album.

Simply excellent, a great album containing songs with both happy and mystreious lyrics. If you like a softer type of rock then this is just for you, with Brad Roberts voice being really different and providing a mysterious perspective of songs such as "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" and "The Psychic". If you like more thought provoking songs such then this is your album with the previously mentioned songs providing spooky thought provoking lyrics. Some of the other songs on the album are more conventional rock like songs. CTD provide a thoughtful view of major things int heir songs such as the bodys system in "Here I Stand Before Me" and God in "The Psychic" and the title song "God Shuffled His Feet" which provides an excellent start to the album. Brad Willaims and CTD explore the world around them in this album and provide a thoroughly interesting listen as well as a sing along for conventional rock fans. A must have in youre collection.

Well, my only regret is that I didn't discover this years ago. I paid one penny..yes one whole British penny for this album, plus postage, and truly I would have been happy to pay £20. I have played it about a dozen times since receiving delivery last week. I loved it on the first listen and still cannot get enough of it.

The most distinctive voice, and I would say the overall sound has small echoes of Dave Matthew band, and Crowded House. No bad thing. The songs just effortless roll into the next. So easy to listen to, and they reach into your soul.

This album is truly fantastic and I impore everyone to spend a penny!

Rarely is one moved to becoming one of the cognoscenti reviewing works for the benefit of others but this is one such occasion. As with many great artists this turned out to be a relative flash in the pan; but even so they are written in popular musical history because of it. There are many qualities to this album but it is overarchingly a creative masterpiece - the works are poetic and incredibly varied with unique vocal switches and percussion - God knows who the drummer is but boy is he good - this really is an artistic masterpiece. Shame they did not kick on; ctds could have been one of the all time greats.

I first heard about this band when my dad picked up a single of theirs way back in the day. I was addicted to the three tracks on it but never made an effort to get the album. 10 years later I finally bought it and what an album it is! There are one or two bum tracks on the album but the other songs more than make up for it. This is a very happy album with amazing production and classy songwritting. Some songs can make you think, some can make you chuckle, theres literally a song about everything on this album! (beleive me, it gets weird) this album is a must buy!!

Outstanding and remarkably anonymous album combining lyrical grooves with catchy tunes, sometimes sombre other times cheerful but very listenable and original !!!
