Ummm, what?

This isn't a good record, it's an amazing one. The songs are written and performed almost perfectly. Most of these songs are a harmonious marraige of music and lyrics, and they will take you to a different place than you may be used to. The person who wrote this review didn't give FOW the proper credit for crafting uniquely written songs, and he/she chose to discredit FOW for having a sense of humor, which is curious to say the least. Entertainment Weekly chose this album as its record of the year in 1990, and you would be wise to add it to your collection.

Utopia Parkway

Not quite as good as their other work, but still a fantastic record. Some songs are a little boring, but overall still very good

'Utopia' is Rather Accurate

I myself am a musician, and I must say that these guys have really influenced me, this album is a great record that is seconded only by there follow-up to it 'Welcome Interstate Managers'. Now, this album isn't 100% perfect, the last few songs drag on a bit but that might just be due to a mistake in track placement, either way some songs certainly are better than others. Having that said, the first half or more of the album is solid, it has really well written everything. So my reccomendation is to buy this right away, if you must get only one song however, do get either Amity Gardens (Very catchy song, nice lyrics) or Hat and Feet (If TMBG and JoCO had a baby, it would've written this).
