This is a good CD, though I don't like it as much as [[ Field Studies ]]. Not sure why, since this is usually considered their better album. The joke here is that the track "Birds" is just a bunch of birds chirping. (Contrast with Birds, which is one of the best tracks off [[ Field Studies ]]).
Most of the tracks on this are good. ( "It's Hard To Turn Me On", "Repetition", "You Fucked Yourself" are annoying). My favorites are:
1. Our Happiness is Guaranteed
4. The Happy Prole (!)
8. Tomorrow You'll Hide
13. I Give Up (!)
... I love the title "Ape Self Prevails In Me Still"!
