Not only does Parker deliver his best, most consistent set of songs, but he offers more succinct hooks than before -- "Local Girls" and "Discovering Japan" are powered by quirky hooks that make them new wave classics. But Parker 's new pop inclinations are tempered by his anger, which seethes throughout the hard rockers and even his quieter numbers.
Throughout Squeezing Out SparksGraham spits out a litany of offenses that make him feel like an outsider, but he's not a liberal, he's a conservative.
The record's two centerpieces -- "Passion Is No Ordinary Word" and the anti-abortion "You Can't Be Too Strong" -- indicate that his traditionalist musical tendencies are symptomatic of a larger conservative trend.
