This is the first Radio Birdman record I've heard. I picked it up off the strength of Dave Fricke's review in Rolling Stone. I love it. Has a cool surf-punk sound. I love the double guitar attack backed by the keys. Very cool stuff. My favorite tracks so far are "Remorseless" and "Die Like April", though there really is no misstep on the album. I will definately seek out their older material in the very near future.

I know everyone loves the obivous highlights "History Lesson Part II" & "This Ain't No Picnic" (and so do I) but I always thought "D's Car Jam/Anxious Mo-Fo" and "Jesus And Tequila" deserved equal footing. I know there are no bad songs on the record, just saying they always stood out more to me.
No doubt. Another standout is "Cohesion," with the late, great D Boon providing gorgeous lead bass. Definately one of my favorite rock instrumentals.
