The stretch of the first 6 tracks is pretty strong

Especially "Missionary Position", "Edith Piaf" and "What The Hell Is It This Time?", the last of which I actually played to my counseling intern during one of my last therapy sessions when it came out as a single cause I'm a dork. Some interesting keyboard sounds here as well. The other 9 tracks haven't grabbed me as much yet, but it's only my second careful listen.
I also definitely concur with those that say the title track isn't the best choice for a lead single. I don't think it's bad, but it gives the impression that the album is an overly goofy and childish Li'l Beethoven retread, which it really isn't. It's probably more of a non-groundbreaking but still good hybrid of all their work since 2000 or so.
