Joyful tomfoolery that plays it a little safer that their previous work.

There's times when I'm like I can't believe these guys have a music career... but then I listen to:

Birdhouse In Your Soul
Istanbul
Particle Man
Minimum Wage
Letterbox

Fantastic individual songs... absolute torture for me to listen to this whole album from beginning to end... but really fantastic individual songs.

This is a hard album to rate. It is pretty far out there. But it is super enjoyable.

funny and quirky on the surface, but with some quite pointed and poignant lyrics at times.

This is the album that had most commercial success. But they did some other most amazing stuff.
