witty album title, lads.  trans am still at it after almost twenty-five years or whatever.  i got bored on them after futureworld, circa 1999.  still, they put out some seminal work.  i would love to herald this record as a return to form.  instead i'm just gonna say you could be listening to worse shit in 2017.  they're playing shows these days.  i am pretty sure if i saw this live, i'd be pretty into it.  good tunes.  it kinda remind me of stuff like ota petrina, a little bit, or maybe some of the older shit they like to imitate.  anyway, nothing revolutionary here.  still, a formidable record.  not too many other records i post fit the "jock jams" taxonomy quite as thoroughly as this.
