"On the first proper Sparks album in nearly a decade, the Mael brothers let existential anxiety into their bouncy music more overtly than usual...Sparks’ wit does fail them with a couple of Hippopotamus tracks... 7.1/10"

From the gig section of Saturday's Telegraph Review section by Neil McCormick:
"American brothers Ron and Russell Mael have been making smart, arty pop as Sparks for 45 years now.Their audacious new album Hippopotamus has been picking up the best reviews of their career and deservedly put them back in the British charts."

Basically the rest of the world is FINALLY coming round to our opinion!!
