1: Prominent accordion. Upbeat. Key changes! Chorus: “what the hell are you up to?” Like the title says, about an opulent canine: words are manipulated to fit metre, and sometimes are hard to understand.
2: Many voices. Upbeat song about a failed writer. “If the critics are so wrong / why do you have to be so tough?”
3: Vaguely retro: a tinge of surfer rock? Cute piano and bass interlude. A song for falling out of love. Rocks harder than other tracks.
4: Mellow sweet boring music. High flat vocals. Clever lyrics. Rocks out in the middle.
5: Sounds eerily like “Even You” from the Loud Family’s Plants and Birds and Rocks and Things.
6: It starts out sounding like the other tracks, but keep listening for the really cool dissonant bridges. Play this track!
7: Standard pop-rock song with nice percussive accordion and keyboard sections.
8: Ballad. Starts very sweetly with piano/guitar chords every measure. A little silence at the end.
9: Annoying female backup vocals: flat. Interlude with corny whispers.
10: Mellow intro with accordion and guitar. Boring power-ballad chorus. Odd metaphorical dialog between male and female voices (in verse-long segments) about who is selfish.
11: Sloppy lyrics about a lost cat, his criminal proclivities, and his psychological handicaps. Accordion-heavy. Bah-bah backup vocals. Song ends about 3:57. There’s a minute of silence. At 4:58 begins a reprise of Cindy Lou (track 5) in French.
