I haven't listened to it in quite a while but I used to enjoy it frequently. I think my favorite cut is "Brand New '64 Dodge", but "Boomtown" is pretty good too.... Good record.......

Yes, this is a terrific recording. The lyrics, in particular are amazingly thoughtful. I particularly like the title track (about the seeming power of words, but, ultimate impotence of words), and Brand New '64 Dodge (about the loss of innocence following the Kennedy assassination).
The sound quality is VERY good on CD, but, it actually sounds considerably better on the original vinyl release. That is a record worth hunting for just for the sound alone.
