Albenrezension

From the smirky album title on down, Too Much Joy's debut album is clearly the work of over-educated, under-employed, upper-middle class kids with far too much time on their hands and the pager number of a good neighborhood dealer. Recorded in fits and starts between 1983 (when the trio were still in high school) and 1987, these 14 songs are often extremely clever and catchy, though an understandably sophomoric sense of humor prevails in the lyrics of songs like "Grandma Went to Athens Once" and "Bored With Love."

That indignity factors into the pointed lyrics of all three songs, suggesting that perhaps the group take their career more seriously than they let on.
