The Johns' debut album is often overlooked in favor of their more successful album, Flood, and quite unfairly so at that. This record is chockful of catchy, poppy New Wave tunes which just make you want to dance around awkwardly like a complete nerd ("Puppet Head", "Don't Let's Start", "Youth Culture"), but also contains lots of weird but interesting experiments ("Boat of Car", "Absolutely Bill's Mood", "Hide Away Folk Family").

One thing I really like about this record is how often they incorporate country music into their own songs. "Number Three", "Hope That I Get Old Before I Die" and "Alienation's for the Rich" are the most obvious examples, the last one being an outright exaggeration of the whole country/blues scene.

Other fun/awesome moments include the sheer energy and chaos of "Hotel Detective", the abrupt slowdown in "Everything Right is Wrong", the Powerhouse break in "Rhythm Section Want Ad" and the heavy use of sampled recordings all throughout the record (especially in songs like "Boat of Car" and "Absolutely Bill's Mood"). Severely underrated, but still a huge fan favorite, this album is a must-have for TMBG fans and non-fans alike.
