One annoying problem with this CD is that it was produced very cheaply and the songs are recorded at a lower volume than standard albums. This can be really annoying because it is quite a bit lower and of course I never remember to turn it back down afterwards until I've already blown my eardrums out.
Bottom Line: Some good Cake songs but not thier best work.
Not to say that "Motorcade of Generosity" doesn't contain a few gems. My favorites are
Ruby Sees All - very good tone to it, nice sound
Pentagram - A nice country-sounding song about ... umm... human sacrifice
Jolene - Alt. Country with a splash of folk... pan pipes are used in this song for reasons beyond me.
Mr. Mastodon Farm
Haze of Love - nice song about a guy realizing he's sick of his signifigant other.
I'd suggest that if you own their newer works, that you should definately check this album out, if only for a listen at their humble beginnings.
Two songs that were dismissed by other reviewers happen to be faves of mine, "Pentagram" and "Commanche." These songs have seen the light of day several times in my car, at work, and at home. My absolute favorite is "You Part the Waters." One of the most intriguing parts of listening to McCrea's music is trying to figure out what kind of "instrument" he is currently discovered to use in his songs.
Try this band if you have not already, maybe even start with one of their more recent, then bactrack, so you can get the true feel for the band and their wide range of musical talents...
