4 stars Much revered by Todd fans, I was a little less enthusiastic about much of this incredibly dense album (two sides of almost 30 minutes of music, each!) "International Feel" was an immediate winner--as was Side Two opener, "Sometimes I Don't Know What to Feel"--and concert favorite "Just One Victory" was great, but the rest, the sophomoric (though clever) humor and Motown/R&B remakes, were just not my cup of tea. The only song I've gone back for during the past 40 years is "Sometimes I Don't Know." Don't get me wrong, Todd is a genius--and I was a super fan ("Todd is God!") throughout the 70s and 80s, but this album was just a bit . . . overwhelming.
