Lyrical wit is in abundance, magnified by Russell Mael's soaring falsetto gymnastics. Failure with the opposite sex is a recurring topic, from the adolescent fumblings of Amateur Hour to the resignation of Falling in Love With Myself Again. It's easy to see why the teenage Morrissey was a dedicated fan. The track that really grabbed the public's attention was This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both of Us, a classic stomper with a gravity defying melody. 1974's Kimono My House is the sound of Sparks firing on all four cylinders, providing one of the most curious and comical albums of the '70s.
