I LOVE BNL's previous releases, "Gordon" and "Maybe You Should Drive." This one doesn't quite stack up to their earlier efforts. One of my biggest complaints is the amount of creative power the Creeggans were given in this album. The music is less unified as a result. Tracks like "Spider in My Room" and "In the Drink," while amusing, are not catchy, and I always skip those on the CD.
There are still some notable tracks, however. The most famous, due to its inclusion on the "Friends" soundtrack, is "Shoe Box." A very catchy tune about how we all hide things from people. Another good one, though a little disturbing, is "The Old Apartment," which is apparently from the perspective of an abusive boyfriend. "Break Your Heart" could accurately be described as Barenaked Elvis--a wonderful and emotional song the King might have sung. "This Is Where It Ends" and "When I Fall" and "I Live With It Every Day" are also good songs. I could live without the rest of them.
