"Pop-rock rarely comes in the neat combination of smart, catchy and personal
consistently delivered by Jim's Big Ego, and perhaps never as consistently
as on the dozen songs on the trio's latest album. Lead singer-songwriter Jim
Infantino is an acute observer of contemporary social customs and behavior,
and he has an uncanny knack for translating his observations into the
accessible, pop equivalents of essays by Theodore Adorno and Walter
Benjamin. Best line: "I'm a paranoid schizophrenic with surround-sound
speakers." Second-best: "She's got a Harley she hardly ever rides." Pure pop
for smart people."
