It just has this charming character to it that is just so magnetic.

You really don't hear albums that have such a quirky fun vibe to them.

Great, fun album....Dance This Mess Around has always been a favourite and anything with Rock Lobster has to have a certain amount of genius. Unsure whether it's their best offering but a cracking start. Shame it ends with Downtown which isn't very good.

The album includes my all-time favorite lyrics:
"There's a moon in the sky
It's called the moon."

If this album doesn't put me in a good mood nothing will. It's so cheesy and fun I can't help but love it. My faves are Dance This Mess Around and of course Rock Lobster.
