While this album is one of The Residents' greatest releases of all time, it's also quite different from the rest of their stuff. While most of the albums are weird, atmospheric, scary, unusual, and all that, this is way more down-to-earth and well-structured. They started this change in style with their Wormwood project, but this is where they definitely changed themselves into something way more accessible. They sounded like they were an actual rock band playing actual instruments. Of course, they're still artificial, but it sounds real in some way.

About the album itself, most of the songs were recorded after the 7/11 incident, so they all sound kind of sorrowful. That's a good thing. Some of the tracks in this album are considered some of the most beautiful Residents songs ever. I can pick out quite a few songs from Animal Lover who deserve that title more than the majority of this album, but that's just me.

This album is divided into three parts. The first one, Loss, is the one where most of the fan favorites are. Best tracks for me would be "The Car Thief", "The Weatherman", "Caring" and "Ghost Child".

The second part, Denial, is my personal favorite, and the only reason for that is "My Brother Paul". I can't stop listening to that song, it sounds so darn sensual and moody. "Baja" sounds really cool as well, and the other songs are quite nice as well. Personally, I get somewhat annoyed at the songs sung by little kids. I think they sound irritating, but that's just me again.

The third part is Three Metaphors, and it's three songs. "Beekeeper's Daughter" is kind of creepy, maybe it's the lyrics. "Wolverines" sounds really nice, and "Make Me Moo" just ruins the whole album for me. Seriously, it's so freakin' annoying, I just can't stand it.

The final song, "Demons Dance Alone" saves the album again, thankfully. It is definitely one of my favorite Residents songs. Too bad it's not on a single "best of" compilation, and I can't stop wondering why. I guess it's just a great way to sum up the album.

Anyway, long story short, get this album if you somehow still don't have it. I wouldn't recommend anyone to start with this, though, 'cause it doesn't showcase the Residents' style very precisely. I'd advise newbies to start with other albums like Duck Stab or Animal Lover, and then give this album a listen.
