ALREADY REVIEWED BY: Me on June 27
GENERAL THOUGHTS: See my review. I suggested that Greg got his CD out so early because he was anticipating the birth of his second child. He corrected me and indicated that he had a bunch of songs lying around from the previous mix. MY version made him look MUCH better.
THINGS I PARTICULARLY LOVED: See my review. But it does play even better the fourth time through.
ON THE OTHER HAND: More than the songs I mentioned in my review, the dialogue breaks the flow.
OFFICE FRIENDLY: As far as I can tell. Some of the lyrics are so garbled – the word “ugly” in the title of #15 sounded like a curse, but it was just his pronunciation.
ONLY VAGUELY RELATED: The Jackson 5 did a cover of the title track; Diana, Mary and Cindy do it so much better.

I'm a librarian. I hear music, even when it's not being played. I used to work at a comic book store, and it still informs my life. I won once on JEOPARDY! - ditto.
