Features the songs "Devil's Roof", "Mania" and Santa Claus". The only real downside to HUNKPAPA is the bland production. The band was pushed into making a more audience-friendly album this time around, and two tracks, "Dizzy" and "Take", lamely feature syrupy horns. On the former, the song in general is pap which Hersh is somewhat embarassed about now, while on the latter one has to listen deeply to hear how the song might have been in the hands of a more competent producer. The razorsharp edge of THROWING MUSES and HOUSE TORNADO was taken away here, and it never really ever came back afterward.
