One of the more enjoyably bent elements of country music, the Lizards have a habit of being a bit too scattershot for their own good. This set is, therefore, pretty much typical for them, despite the inclusion of "Hillbillies in a Haunted House," with a way too late parody in "Grunge Song," a thematic repeat in "Forty Years Old and I'm Livin' in My Mom's Garage"

Overview

One of the more enjoyably bent elements of country music, the Lizards have a habit of being a bit too scattershot for their own good. This set is, therefore, pretty much typical for them, despite the inclusion of "Hillbillies in a Haunted House," with a way too late parody in "Grunge Song," a thematic repeat in "Forty Years Old and I'm Livin' in My Mom's Garage" (which is little more than a continuation of "Wrong End of the Gene Pool"), and so on. However, not all is lost: "Rasputin's HMO" is priceless, "Big Rio Grande River" is a gem of a parody of Tex-Mex and Marty Robbins, and "The Illusion Travels By Stock Car," which mixes Richard Petty with Luis Bunuel, qualifies for the most surreal country song ever recorded. Cumulatively, this is not the best Austin Lounge Lizards effort, but it has more than its share of good moments.

Never an Adult Moment is quintessential Austin Lounge Lizards. It's funny and classic, though the Grunge song may actually be a little dated. (It's still funny, though). Rasputin's HMO is unexpectedly literate, historically accurate (well, sort of) and humourous. Listen for political jabs, running gags, expert fiddle, banjo and guitar work mixed with pure bluegrass harmonies. Everything's superbly performed and exquisitely written. Some of the pieces may hit a little too close to home, but they'll make you laugh. If you have never heard the Lizards, get this c.d. You'll want to catch them live if you're lucky enough to have them come to your town. I actually would like them to start an All Lizard, All the Time cable channel. And a 24 hour satellite station. Hey, if they can do it for Jimmy Buffett, they can do it for these guys. (I like Jimmy Buffett too, but these guys make me laugh a whole lot more.)
