As is often the case, the cut that stands out first ends up being the gem, and that's the case here, for me. "Number One Hit" has a groove, energy, a hook, and interesting things happening musically. Lyrically it's a bit obtuse--seems to be about teenage angst or something--but many of the songs are hard to follow lyrically. I guess I'd say it's kind of REM-ish, only harder, which is a compliment.
I wish there were a bit more variety in the tonal quality overall (too much going on in the midrange), and that the whole concept was a bit less freaky (I didn't have the patience for the artfully constructed liner note stories), but I really appreciate the level of musicianship, the recording, and the overall sonic quality of this record. Am I allowed to call it a record if I'm over 50?
