I still can't get over how well Norm skewered "Pretentious Angst Rock" (and teenage zombies) with "Juzt Mizunderstood".

All the tracks are awesome feats of zing. Alas, "Pimp My Satellite" now makes me angry, since we've outsourced our space program to China. (But Burt Rutan may save us yet.)

It's too bad Dr Demento (or maybe just his show) is pushing up daisies. Norm's stuff would kick butt on that show.

Norm already had Sci-Fi High featured on Dr.Demento.

Got my CD in a while ago, around early February, only a couple weeks after I ordered it. Not bad for Baltimore to Florida over USPS, the Pony Express probably would've been about the same time, but that's neither here nor there. Great CD, as I have come to expect from Mr. Sherman! Damn Americans, we take things for granted so easily

Some video from the release concert, for those interested. Looks like we're performing in Kevin Anderson's dank post-apocalyptic cellar.

Love the album, been listening to it all the time in the car! My one complaint is that the vocals are too low in the mix on "Babylon Battle of the Bands".

Norm, your vocals sound so different on "Juzt Mizunderstood" that at first I thought you had a guest singer there. Have you processed them? How?

That was Connor Choadsworth singing Juzt Misunderstood.

That's pretty ostentatious, giving each character not only an accent but also a unique singing voice. (-;

I reviewed the album in ScienceBlogs, BTW. Hope it sends some customers here.
