    The truth is more real than the review in this case, for the fact is The Flying Lizards are my cat’s favorite band. She notices every time I put them on, and gets up to stare into the speakers. Whatever it is, it’s talking to her. Therefore I do not need to interject my opinion on this matter. I certainly don’t want to give her another reason to hunt and kill me.

      That this alsum opens with a Brecht/Weill cover (in German!) suggests it goes deeper than a novelty record, and there's a variety of music besides the droll, deadpan cover. But is it deep? I'm not sure.

        The text in the bottom left quadrant of the artwork appears to be from Roland Barthes' Musica Pratica.

            Why doesn't anyone mention the fact that Vivian Goldman sung and co wrote two of the best tracks on this lp??

              This album is criminally underrated. "Her Story" and "The Window" are incredible - this band's NOT a one hit wonder. Lizard Heads unite.
