It's very rare for me to find an album that I want to listen to all the way through without feeling the need to skip a track or two. Radiohead's 'The Bends' is one such album, and 'Welcome Interstate Managers' by the excellent Fountains of Wayne is another. Like many, I guess, I came across FoW through 'Stacey's Mom' which is a brilliantly catchy tune. I then heard them on Simon Mayo's Album Chart Show on R2 which whet my appetite for more. This album has so many cool facets. It's funny, incisive and well observed, musically interesting and varied, and very well played. 'Hey Julie' is my personal favourite, but every other track is a gem in its own right. In summary, if you like well written, well performed guitar based music, you can't go far wrong with this album.
