Incorrect. Leisure has no super short songs. :geek:
I was struggling on how to phrase that sentence. I meant that it's the first album since Leisure where there's no song shorter than 2:52. Brain is not the best in the morning.

Wow, only read through the last two pages of this thread and this makes me so excited. Cannot wait for Friday, when I hold this in my hands and will listen to it.

It's still growing on me. The whole B-Side of The Magic Whip ist excellent, the songs fit perfectly behind each other.

ong ong works so well in context of the album. kind of like one of those fun beatles songs with experimental songs around them. or a super furry animals record.

When listening to the version of Ice Cream Man, I always have to think of the Super Furry Animals.
Still, I hope Ong Ong will get a propper single release.
