I love the concept of this album: Chim Chim (the monkey from Speed Racer), through government experiments, becomes super intelligent and a global star. He is turned into an astronaut, and when he is shot into space, he turns around and blows up the world. Totally unnecessary. That's what makes it great. The album left a little to be desired, in my opinion. I should like it more than I do. I attended the show at which half of the album was recorded. I took a pretty good beating in the crowd at that show. Anyway, the highlight of this album for me is actually a song that they wrote when the band had just gotten together years before: "Alcoholic." It had never been officially released until this came out. The version on Chim Chim was recorded live, and it is tight. This album was their first ever outside of the Columbia sphere of influence. CD only.
