Let's not get too complex here. The title track is the sort of good humoured music other bands don't have the nerve to do. I sing this song to my small nephews and my niece. And my mother has used this tune at school for her 5 to 6 year olds. Try that with REM and the police will be calling. This song is in a similar vein to James K Polk on Factory Showroom: fun, finger tapping and, er, educational. Now that's value for money. And then we move onto a slightly extended version of Spy with its retro sounds. But perhaps the cream of the record is the excellent reworking of Jessica which some British readers will recognise as the theme tune to the motoring program, Top Clarkson. As well as being humourous and confident, the Giants are gifted arrangers. The set-up for Jessica is at once folksy and funky. The poignant and excellently sung Whirlpool finishes this odd and very special gem. I don't know what Whirlpool might be about, but if you've ever wondered if your life could be different, this is the song that expresses that odd fearful, sad wonder.
