  • From "An abstract version of an antiwar song. The spare extended instrumental opening adds something haunting to the track. I think this song was originally more on the Neil Young side of the good ship Rock, but this recording goes to show how an octave bass part and a sleighbell really can make anything sound like 'Pet Sounds' (which is a good thing)." -- John Flansburgh
  • In They Might Be Giants Vs. McSweeney's, this song accompanies "Tough Day for The Army: In the Beginning" by John Warner.
