The Jimmy Castor Bunch meets "Ain't That a Shame" surrealism of "And the Fun Goes On," the locomotive breath of "If Julia Sees Her," and the throaty indolence of "Desperate Dan" all pack the same reeling punch as the smash, a good-time packed-up party vibe that clashes mutant Gary Glitter with an album-long "Neanderthal Man," and doesn't care how sick you get of stamping along. Once it starts, you won't be able to stop, no matter how drunk you get. Stay sober, on the other hand, and it will all pale very quickly indeed. Sometimes, one hit single really is enough.
