    I like cake. Cake is good. Cake cake cake. Yum yum yum.

    Cake is smooth and easy especially when you don't listen very hard. When you do, however, you discover its not as good as when you were only passively listening.

    There is, as usual, a lot of brass on cake's sixth album, a flourish that seem idiosyncratic 20 years ago but now leaves them sounding a little stale. [Feb 2012, p.83]

    Seventeen years on,... Cake have lost none of their bite. [Feb. 2012 p. 101]

    Following a seven year gap between studio albums, Sacramento's CAKE is back with the compelling, yet inconsistent Showroom of Compassion.
