Lyrical wit is in abundance, magnified by Russell Mael's soaring falsetto gymnastics. Failure with the opposite sex is a recurring topic, from the adolescent fumblings of "Amateur Hour" to the resignation of "Falling in Love With Myself Again". It's easy to see why the teenage Morrissey was a dedicated fan. The track that really grabbed the public's attention was "This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both of Us", a classic stomper with a gravity defying melody. KIMONO MY HOUSE is the sound of Sparks firing on all four cylinders, providing one of the most curious and comical albums of the '70s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparks_(band)
