AllMusic Review by

Imagine They Might Be Giants secretly posing as a rustic southern rock band, and you'll have some idea what Enormous Richard sounded like circa Answers all Your Questions -- the record has an irritating silliness that's not helped by its chirpy rockabilly and surf sounds or the presence of accordion. The album is at its best, however, when the band slips into a zydeco format -- the sound of Enormous Richard albums like Warm Milk on the Porch emphasize this quality over the silliness, and fare just a tad better.
