From the very first five seconds of quick downstrokes, the music warns of utter classicness about to ensue. 2 1/2 minute opener "This Angry Silence" establishes the album's lo-fi aesthetic, the simple, bass-driven arrangements, the echoing electric guitar flourishes that clang and surf and scurry through any mousehole of space to be found. Dan Treacy's often off-key vox shout and falsetto-warble their way through a couple cockney melodies, the bridge slows down with timpani-like booms, and then the tempo steadily accelerates to a galloping close under Treacy's barks of "This angry silence!" Reckless, adventurous pop raptures out the speakers.

As much as these songs catch the listener up with sloppy spunk, they're equally fetching thanks to their humor, and a fair portion of the album comes off like the soundtrack to a lost Wes Anderson comedy. With bird chirping and acoustic picking that might be an uber-mellow parody of The Madcap Laughs (1970), "I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives" is a song about, um, knowing where Syd Barrett lives. The final verse smiles: "He was very famous once upon a time / but no one cares even if he's alive (we do!) / But I know where he lives / and I visit him in a little hut / by the edge of the wood." Over a muted up-tempo jaunt that'd birth Bob Pollards, "Jackanory Stories" champions cynicism in a strangely pleasant fashion, Treacy drolly expressing his boredom with whatever tales people might fancy to tell. The amusement probably reaches its peak with "Parties in Chelsea" and its brightly jaded coda of "I've been to, uh-oh, all the parties in Chelsea / I've been to, uh-oh, all the parties in Chelsea." And "Geoffrey Ingram" is purely brilliant silliness, unfettered by modern notions of irony. If Art Brut owe a great deal of their inspiration to Blur's "Parklife," then "Parklife" owes a great deal to... yeah, it's like that, see.

Beneath chuckles and twinkling winks, though, the TVP are tender lads at heart. In "The Glittering Prizes" Treacy's never succeeded on the level that he would like, and this leads to the hushed bridge of "Pretty soon I'm gonna change / Pretty soon I'm gonna change / And you won't recognize me," which builds to a wistfully triumphant chorus. "A Family Affair" and "Diary of a Young Man" explore a down-tempo, moody blue terrain with distant guitar that reaches through a layer of reverb; Galaxie 500 fans take note. The album's emotional palette even includes bursts of red with "Silly Girl" and "Look Back in Anger," the bookend companion to "This Angry Silence." Exemplified by the manner in which the lilting intrumental reprise of "I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives" makes the same tune apt for the title of "The Crying Room," And Don't the Kids states the cohesion and unity of its sentiment.
