The Bollock Brothers' fifth album is not much fun at all. It's merely a rehash of their earlier album The Last Supper, but not nearly as entertaining. Their formula for rewriting earlier hits for their own amusement seems tired by now. "Woke Up This Morning Found Myself Dead" is a limp retread of "Der Kommissar," the title track pinches the chorus from "Sympathy for the Devil," and neither of them are particularly funny or clever. By the time of "Return to the Garden of Eden," a medley of classic rock warhorses including "Ina-Gadda-De-Vida," "Tales of Brave Ulysses," and "California Dreamin'," the album has lost all point or purpose. This is what a novelty act sounds like when it overstays its welcome.
