Traffic and Weather

Great new album from Fountains Of Wayne--
"Traffic and Weather"

*Well-crafted songs and quirky lyrics abound
*Great production; excellent stereo soundscape
*No big hit singles like "Stacy's Mom" but that
might be a good thing, considering America's
taste in music
*Melissa Auf Der Maur pops up in Track 1; James
Iha plays guitar on Track 14--is Billy Corgan

I've seen Adam Schlesinger's writing credit appear
in strange places (theme song for "Crank Yankers"
on Comedy Central?)

Anyone else remember a recent Adam tune outside a
"Fountains Of Wayne" album?
