Chances are, if you remember the Crash Test Dummies at all, you remember their 1994 break-out hit "Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm", featuring gentle, folky music, quirky lyrics about a boy with blue hair and a girl covered in birthmarks, and Brad Robert's unmistakeably deep ulta-bass voice humming the hook. God Shuffles His Feet features that song as well as a couple of other excellent singles (such as "Afternoons and Coffeespoons") that received some airplay on the heels of "Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm"'s success. But the Crash Test Dummies never achieved serious commercial success otherwise, and there's no real explanation for it. Brad Roberts' lyrics--especially during this phase of his career--are exceedingly literate and reflective, and the band's musicianship is top-notch. The music (early-'90s folk pop a la Blues Traveler or Dave Matthews) sounds just a tad dated, but it still excellent. A warning: every Crash Test Dummies album has a distinct "sound" to it, and no two albums are all that much alike. The previous album (the debut The Ghosts That Haunt Me) is heavier on the folk and Celtic influences, while the next album (A Worm's Life) moves away from folk toward a harder rock sound. The chemistry on God Shuffled His Feet was just right, yielding Crash Test Dummies best album.
