The amazing talents of this band are immediately obvious when you listen to Introduction, the first song, which is a hilarious take on creation. Right from the beginning, it is clear that this is music that'll make you want to listen closely, to make sure you don't miss out a single joke. Even though the music is out there, the production is crystal clear and the performances are tight. The riffs are pretty catchy, and some of the sounds used (for vocal and guitar processing) are highly interesting. On top of the catchiness is funny spoken-word humour. The burning question is whether the prank phone calls (in Dancer, for example) were actually conducted, or if they are just simulations. I highly recommend checking out the MoFS' www page and getting this tape right away!
This is The MoFS' second release, and it is evident that the album has been influenced to a great extent by The Residents: from the music, which has become more bizarre and twisted, to the name of the label (Who Shot Ralph? Records) this album is released under. As in the case with the first release, the background music is fairly catchy and weird, but there's a lot more processing of the guitar and the vocals. The cover art is really cool. The major problem which I had with release is the quality of the production. Whereas their self-titled release had very good production, the mix on this album sounds a bit muddy and you have to strain to hear some of the neat musical ideas (according to the MoFS' spokesperson, this is due to multi-generation dubbing). Other than that, I think this release shows a growth in terms of both music and songwriting, and is more extreme than the previous one (which is a good thing).
