Some albums open with a bang, some build up to an creshendo. This album opens with microphone / speaker feedback and a message from the band. The fun doesn't stop there, some tracks like Green Man stop abruptly with no warning, causing me to wonder at the time if there was something wrong with the CD. Also there is quite possibly the longest track name in my collection in "The Glorious Liberation of the People's Technocratic Republic of Vinnland by the Combined Forces of the United Territories of Europa".

The standout moment on the album and a staple of rock clubs of the late 90s is the synth intro to "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend". Great stuff.

Favourite Tracks
"Be My Druidess", "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend", "Cinnamon Girl"
