5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on March 6, 2003
Format: Audio CD
This is an incredibly varied album, sometimes hysterically funny as on the title track, but always cerebral, thought-provoking and strangely captivating. It's awash with clever samples that definitely contribute to the ambience and the weirdness. There are gentle ballads like Great Radio, What If and their cover of Kisses Sweeter Than Wine. Chicken Pussy is a bizarre sound collage with hilarious spoken lyrics while White Rental Car Blues sounds like a sweet soul song if you ignore the suggestive lyrics.
Nick Cave Dolls starts with those weird samples, a guy talking about the name of the band plus random snatches of conversation and noise, before Ann's wistful voice takes up a surrealistic tale of a stroll through the city while sending up a variety of stereotypes. On Bedazzled she turns into Marlene Dietrich or similar European sultry chanteuse in a conversation/talk and response format with the other voices. The next one, Obscene & Pornographic Art, is a literate and witty observation of a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art that'll have you in stitches, especially the "suffragette song."
A robotic, laconic male vocal narrates the tale of a visit to a strange game room over ominous warbling guitar sounds on What Kind Of Man Reads Playboy, while Junior kicks off with raucous guitar and turns into a love song with Ann's dreamy vocalising.
This amazing album's tour de force is the astonishing Folk Song, all 11 minutes of it, where Magnuson's voice really gets a chance to soar. It deals with inter alia anarchists, sexual politics, media networks and refers to anthropologist Joseph Campbell in this most beautiful chorus: "Joseph Campbell gave me hope and now I have been saved/So I sing hello death, goodbye Avenue A.

This album is not as serene as "Too Much Sleep", but is equally diverse and creative. Many of the tracks involve spoken lyrics, and their musical accompaniment is generally very good. As for the lyrics themselves, they carry the characteristic Magnusen wit and intelligence. Many of them expound on an array of very honest feminist ideas, or at least are an insightful commentary on the feminine conundrums women face today. Others are just really funny. Overall this would be a good addition to a "very alternative" pop collection.

Those familiar with Bongwater (essentially, witty/beautiful Ann Magnuson and all around indie renaissance man Kramer)will find everything they love about the band in abundance here. Those wishing to explore this great and all too short lived project may find this their most accessible release.
Accessible, perhaps, but still a long way from the mainstream, this disc is a tongue in cheek, neo-feminist poke in the ear consisting of samples and found sound bytes all tied up with rocking, harmonious tunes, clever and more-often-than-not sardonic lyrics and a very pointed world view.
A perrenial in my CD player, this disc has worn well with the years - still funny, groovy and right on target. Isn't it time you heard it?
