The band haven't moved on - perfectly good tracks such as More Bad Times are ruined by the forced kookiness that makes the band use words like "baboon" and "spork". It's like the joke just isn't funny any more. Expand

  1. While not as immediately memorable as "Lump" or "Peaches," punchy songs like album opener "Mixed Up S.O.B.," "More Bad Times" and the breezy "Loose Balloon" come across as less novelty-like as a result of songcraft.
  2. There's nothing complicated on this album, but then when did things ever need to be complicated?
