Album Review

On their second LP, Dr. Frank and company sharpen their pop hooks and instrumental prowess, though admittedly, they are still a far cry from being Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Based on "Now We Are Twenty-One"'s references to Captain Crunch cereal and The Brady Bunch, one might dismiss Dr. Frank as another pop-culture damaged hipster-doofus opus, but "The History of the Concept of the Soul" erases any notion that Frank is stupid. A kind of master's thesis set to a rockin' beat, "The History of the Concept of the Soul" comes as close as any song has in explaining the meaning of life in under two minutes. Catchy and irresistible, the song was a staple of punk rock mix tapes in the late 1980s. Although the rest of the album is fleshed out with other strong tunes, MTX had still not yet reached their creative peak. Like Everybody's Entitled to Their Own Opinion, the Lookout!

Perhaps this is a result of the perception...
