Cake does it again with their Junior offering to the public. This album pretty much continues where Fasion Nuggett and Motorcade of Generosity left off. The songs are 3-5 minutes, tightly constructed and usually follow the typical intro, verse, chrous, solo, verse, chorus, ending. Again the mix of lyrical smoothness combined with a jazz ensemble and some kickin horns make for some particularly memorable tracks. Although not as completly even as Fashion Nugget, there are stil some excellent offerings here. The album actually gains steam as it goes along much the same way that Mortorcade Of Generosity did. You Turn The Screws is an excellent song that exemplifies Cake's cathy lyrics and double meanings. Other favorites include When You Sleep and Cool Blue Reason. The only downside of this album is that by the time you get to Where Would I Be, you are pretty tired of the repetiveness. Cake's style was good for three albums and I think they will need to reinvent themselves if they want to continue to be cutting edge.
On an interesting side note, I lived in the Sacramento area for a awhile where these guys are from. They were known for cancelling live shows and getting pissed off at the audience for "moshing" and misunderstaniding their music. Their live shows were reputedly direct replications of thier studio albums which is dissapointing.
Bottom Line: Fans of Cake should pick this up in and newcomers can start here or with Fashion Nuggett.

It's often hard to tell each track from another, every track is unremarkable, and uniquely Cake. If you like Cake, get this cd, because it sounds like everything else they've done. If you don't like Cake, congratulations.

Like many of my friends, I'm absolutely in LOVE with Motorcade of Generosity. And it's still my favorite work from this inventive band. But give Prolonging a chance. When I listened to this CD at first, I was disappointed by the lack of upbeat, twangy ballads that permeated Motorcade, and also by the lack of trumpet solos and the general "yeah, all right" energy. However, repeat listenings uncovered some amazing songs. These tend to be more subdued and the sound seems more "blended in" or refined. The lyrics aren't as fun as on Motorcade either. However, "Satan is My Motor," "Sheep Go to Heaven," "Walk On By," and "Hem of Your Garment" are fantastic songs while "Mexico", "When You Sleep" and "Cool Blue Reason" are unusual, catchy ballads. Highly recommended for those new to Cake, and for previous fans, just another great album.

simply classic. songs like mexico, guitar, and never there (which is DEFINATELY a classic) are only part of this amazing album. i highly recommend it, and every other cake album for that matter.

They have steel guitars, country-rock and 80s new wave influences, a brilliant trumpet player doubling on keyboards, bass lines that walk like the funky chicken, smart, almost-spoken lyrics and a social conscience with a sense of humor. They are Cake, and words do not describe. This third release from the Sacramento-native band is less raw than Motorcade of Generosity and less angry than Fashion Nugget, but it stands out as the most consistently excellent album in their catalog. Those who heard only the radio hit "Never There" might be surprised to learn that while it's similar to their other earlier radio-rotated "Going the Distance," it's more of an anomaly in their overall repertoire. There's no disappointment in that, though - from the sweet, twangy, and lyrically brilliant "Mexico" to the raucous sing-along power of "Sheep Go To Heaven", Cake hops gaps between genres and never fails to deliver a better mood. If you don't like this CD, you'll find someone in your close circle of friends who will be happy to capitalize on your bad taste and take it off your hands.

In my opinion, CAKE is one of the best bands out there. This cd is great. Although it says it's explicit lyrics, it's not. The only cuss word is hell, and it's not even bad in the context they put it in. They don't talk about anything bad either like killing people or whatever and I really don't know who decides if it's parental advisory or not but this cd definately should not be. All of the songs are good, but my favorite is Never There. I highly reccomend picking this one up, if you have the means.

Prolonging the Magic is not only the best Cake album, it is one of the best albums of all time. You will never get sick of any song on the CD, not even the two big singles, Never There and Sheep Go To Heaven. You will immediately be addicted to the first seven tracks and won't want to go past them. But this isn't were the magic ends. This is a great album all the way through especially with Gabe Nelson's amazing bass riffs in Hem of Your Garment and Cool Blue Reason. Prolonging the Magic's amazing lyrics and simple guitar parts mix perfectly with the complicated sounding bass parts that will blow your mind. Singer John McCrea's low, raspy voice fits his lyrics perfectly. I strongly recommend this album to anyone with any taste in music (excluding rap fiends).
