So, let's pretend you've heard some Cake. Maybe you've heard "Going the Distance", which gets radio play, or "Short Skirt, Long Jacket", which I think has been in a movie or two. You're sitting here reading the reviews, wondering if the album is worth it. Let me help you with your decision: Go for it. They have a LOT of excellent numbers on this album... several radio hits that you'll remember, and several tricky songs that are waiting to be discovered. I am NOT A CAKE FAN. I don't listen to them terribly often. But this album is almost surreal in how effective and fun it is. Solid reasons to buy the album: "The Distance," "Stick-shifts and Safety-belts," "Short Skirt Long Jacket," "Never There," "Frank Sinatra," "Friend is a Four Letter Word..." and even the catchy yet annoying number that caused me to buy the album: their cover of "I Will Survive." If you've heard some Cake, and like them a little, this is a no-brainer.
