Cake: Showroom of Compassion
IGN: "Mustache Man (Wasted)" is the best of the psychedelic leaning bunch, seamlessly blending the funky chirping organ with the buzz saw riffs, rumbling bass and trumpeting horns the band is known for.
A.V. Club: Some of the attitude has softened, McCrea's vocals are less dominating, and the band as a whole sounds more relaxed.
Los Angeles Times: As ever before, Cake romps with whatever genre -- pickled ska, roughshod country, even a rare snippet of Chopin-like classical piano -- in its indie folk mash.
Rolling Stone: Their sixth disc has the usual whirring keyboards and winking mariachi horns, all subject to John McCrea's satiric sing-talking. He lays into hipsters, guys with mustaches and Angelenos, tempering his derision with pathos.
Showroom of Compassion is out now via Upbeat Records.
