Full-band electroclash, the album interpolates rockin' hits from the Beatles' "Birthday" to "You Are My Sunshine." The call-and-response chorus of "Hey Asshole, How Do I Sell Out?" gives way to rhythmic yelping to the tune of "La Vida Loca." There are hints of real pop genius and some serious chops, including a slamming Faith No More-style bass line in the stalker anthem "I Ache for You," an effervescent xylophone solo in "Bob Got Me." Put this one on the shelf between Zappa's The Man From Utopia and your Jerky Boys collection.
