Several tracks stand out: 'Mr Entertainment' and 'Plunger' have glorious stop/start-loud/soft dynamics, not a new idea but perfectly executed and fresh sounding. 'Laundry song' is the one that reminds me most strongly of the Housemartins, it's a timely change in tempo for the LP too. 'William's week' is catchy in the extreme. if there's going to be a single off the lp, then this should be it. Finally, 'Minnesota girl' stands out cos of the style - sparse with distorted vocals. almost sounds like the Boo Radleys with perhaps a hint of Talking Heads. Two beeps recur through out the track and interestingly sound like they've been lifted from a track called 'Slap my belly' by A Guy Called Gerald & Jane.
