I'll admit, when I first heard 'Tropical Ice Land', I could not comprehend how anyone could write such an annoying song and not get fined for public indecency. It seemed to defy logic! But time changes everything, including an opinionated teenager' taste. This IS a cheesey album, but it's not meant as a criticism, it's just another part of the brew. In fact, it's what makes the album so endearing, and so is the comradeship between the brother and sister duo. It's fun, witty and charming, like a really cool friend who likes sunny days and snaggletooths. I love track 5, Inca Rag, the bouncy piano and nervous vocals that start the song grow into a Beatles/Motown summer song with wah-wah guitars and wierd lyrics. Gale Blow is also pretty cool with one finger piano stabs and percussion that rides along on tin pots. But what I really appreciate is the inventiveness that lifts this album out of the garage rock stupor that some 'cooler' bands adopt. Thos is worth your time and patience.
