Album test

So while I was at the Ontarion before coming in to work this afternoon I got to hear most of Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (from the beginning through "Do You Realize??"). It did nothing for me. So at least my assumption based on my reaction to The Soft Bulletin proved warrented. I wouldn't mind checking out their earlier, weirder stuff (particularly the albums with Jonathan Donahue, even though I'm staying away from The Secret Migration, thank you very much), but for the last two albums I really only like "What Is The Light?", "Race For The Prize" and of course "Buzzin'".

Is that the album that has... uh... X Test on it? The one that got them in trouble for sounding too much like Father and Son?

Yep, that's the one. The song you're thinking of is "Fight Test". That one doesn't do much for either.
