Conclusion

Pro-social Content

None, though several nonsensical songs avoid offensive themes.

Objectionable Content

A wave of sexual double entendres flood "Swimming in Your Ocean." "In the Days of the Caveman" includes Darwinist philosophies ("see in the shape of my body leftover parts from the apes and monkeys"). Tequila and swimsuit magazines are recommended as positive distractions on "I Think I'll Disappear Now." The title track is disturbing in its irreverence for God, His nature and biblical concepts, while the hit single "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" shows disrespect for churchgoers. Other songs speak positively of alcohol, medieval potions and psychic phenomena.

Summary Advisory

With a Jethro Tull-minus-the-flute-style and lyrics often bordering on utter nonsense, Crash Test Dummies has found a niche with an audience tired of the downer music of various alternative bands. This group has a more upbeat tone, though it comes off sounding like the same tune played twelve different ways. These guys don't take themselves too seriously. But herein lies the problem; the band doesn't take its lyrics seriously either, offering several less than wholesome messages. Crash Test Dummies are an accident waiting to happen.
