    This album is beyond amazing. It's songs are great by themselves and have some awesome hooks. Every song is through-composed, which speaks for The Unicorns' compositional skills. As great as all the songs are by themselves, however, it only gets better. Upon listening to this album about 20 times, I realized that it's also carries a loose theme and tells the story of The Unicorns' acceptance of death. The early songs on the album speak of how great it is to be alive and the feats of the living, but after "I Was Born A Unicorn" it takes on a tone that praises death and an acceptance and almost embracing of the inevitable.

  1. To be sure, there is an ironic smirk clinging to much of Who Will Cut Our Hair..., but there is also the subtle beatings of unpretentious sympathy and maverick potential.
  2. The Unicorns’ schtick isn’t very difficult to see through; they’re grown adults writing children’s songs for grown adults.
  3. It’s improbably refreshing to hear musicians that were clearly weaned on Frank Zappa, Supertramp and ELO messing things up and having a laugh.
