Do not be alarmed. What you are hearing is the sound of a great rock and roll band coming to terms with that fact. Like their sonically pixieish spiritual forefathers, their tossed-off craftsmanship is astounding. You get the sense that they can write songs like these forever, or not. Whatever. And since it was recorded and released before the year really exploded, it had the extra added bonus of truly being fun -- maybe the one true up all year. And I don't even think this is the total killer classic record they have in them. I can only hope they'll decide to let it out. And "Unfair" is my California new state song. I'm screaming: "The last psychedelic band, from Sacto, Northern Cal!"
