Exotic Creatures of the Deep

Sparks - CD - Rating: 8/10

I wasn’t sure what to think of this album when I first listened to it. It feels more like a straightforward rock album than their last two with their weird, off-kilter arrangements. But, now a few years away from its release, this CD has grown on me. The album starts off strong, but somewhere near the last third of the CD tracks like “Lighten Up, Morrissey” and “Photoshop” start to drag the album down. Thankfully, the album closes with the excellent, “Likeable” which redeems it.
