 1) "They'll Need a Crane" is one of the best pop songs TMBG ever wrote. 2) I'm pretty sure that Factory Showroom is quite loved by the TMBG fanbase. 3) Nobody misses "Wicked Little Critta". 4) I think TMBG have lost the plot. The Spine was the best "adult" thing they've done in a long time, but they seem to have more fun with the kiddie stuff. Which is a shame. This album just isn't that fun for me. Maybe a few more listens will convince me that it's not as bad as it seems.
