Having heard only Danielson's great tune "Did I Step on Your Trumpet?", I felt compelled to check out this offering. Sometimes that's just the best way to check out a creative, quirky band -- jump right in!
Other times, you wish you had looked before you leapt. (Leaped?) Unfortunately, this was one of those times.
This offering sounds like high school garage band: disorganized and sloppy, yet still full of itself. What comes to mind as I listen to it is an audio recording of Schoolhouse Rock getting slaughtered by The Hamburgler. I'm not quite sure what that means, but somehow it makes sense when I listen to this album.
It's too bad, but it's not good.
Verdict: Pile of Death.
