4 stars Let Them Eat Cake was Motorpsycho's first true foray into pop. For that shocking reason it is probably, to their fans, one of the more famous albums, along with the most ambitious heavy prog offering, Heavy Metal Fruit.

Cake is filled with breezy pop rock songs, fueled by strings, horns, organs, deep bass and a light guitar. Even though Motorpsycho is more known for their heavy stuff, a lot on here is in a mellow mood. For their hyperprolific 20-year output (an album a year, sometimes twice), it is a testament to Motorpsycho that almost all their songs are distinct from one another with very little filler per album. That said, I think that Cake is more famous what they were trying to do than what they actually did, because on later works their pop becomes even more refined. And who can forget the immortal "Lets get some weed and chill out to Pink Floyd" line? I'm only mentioning it passingly, because another reviewer already beat me to it.
