Even though they had their moments, it was hard to hang onto Sparks much past Pulling Rabbits. I cut them a lot of slack and enjoyed hearing new songs, but once the novelty of having new Mael stuff wore off I stopped returning to their later records. Which is why I surprised at howgood the last one was. Nice trilogy - you made a lot of different choices than I would have, but the songs are so damn strong you really can't go wrong.
Nice. I would have gone a little heavier on "Plagiarism," though. I especially like the remakes of "Change" and "When Do I Get To Sing My Way?".
