This album has a much more sophisticated sound, songwriting, and vastly improved vocals and production. The lyrics, always witty, have more variety and zing. As has been indicated in some of the other reviews, the uncredited piece five minutes after the last cut lets "Dubya" have it right where it hurts. No one can savage a Yalie like another Yalie, and there's a deep Blue streak in the band.
Besides that one, my favorite is "Serenity the Angel", which boasts an attractive chord sequence and tasteful female vocals--a clue to the solution the FOB's have come up with to the previously much-too-Dead (as in Grateful) vocal patterns: spread the wealth. There are 6 or 7 different lead vocalists on this album.
