I've just gotten into Sparks, too, and while this album took a little bit of time to warm up to me, I've really gotten into it. Initially, the repetitiveness of the songs turned me off, but after a while it really clicked with me. I absolutely adore "My Baby's Taking Me Home", and, aside from the recitation, the only lyrics are the title. It's not a perfect album (I could, honestly, do without "How Do I Get To Carnegie Hall?"), but it's really good, and, well, "My Baby's Taking Me Home" is worth the price of admission alone. - Rev.
