may be eclectic, drawing from all sorts of collegiate rock, but they have a hard time focusing their talents on their second album, Sacred Cow
. Careening between jangly pop, tame punk, reconstituted prog-rock and funk, the band covers a lot of ground without coming up with a distinctive sound. Furthermore, the group is undone by their weakness for cutesy, sophomoric jokes -- their very attitude makes it seem like they're being condescending to their own music. But the best moments on Sacred Cow
-- despite their flaws, the band does have musical skill -- suggest that if the band can focus themselves, they'll produce an engaging album.
