Hard Place: Hard Place

As happy as I am to see "RIYL" enter the common discourse of music (well, at least CMJ's given something to the world), it bugs me a bit to see it misused by promobots. The sticker on my copy of this one names Devo and Sparks twice apiece. For a second, "Demographic" made me think "okay, they've heard 'Uncontrollable Urge.'" But then it made me think "...but they didn't learn anything from it." The rest of the songs passed by leaving no impression at all. The Sparks comparison I don't quite get, although it's possible that one of them might look better with a small moustache.
