  • It is fair to say that listening to this, their second album, in one hit is a little hard on the ear. Individually, the pathos and humour these chaps manage to put into every song is admirable--very much like a '90s version of Tom Lehrer, but without the satire. The jokes are ironic rather than obvious. Their commercial success is of course due to the songs' accessibility, the most commercial being the wonderful "Birdhouse In Your Soul," a deserved hit single. The story of a back-stabbing office ogre is chronicled in the shape of "Someone Keeps Moving My Chair." Some tracks are clearly private jokes and pass by the listener, although self-interpretation can come into play.
