I really liked it, though a few songs dragged a little. I liked the narrative though, it was very grim, but drew me in, and I enjoyed all the little details. Chickenman is by far my favorite song. It actually has inspired a musical in my head (about something kind of different than E&E.) Then again, Jason and Amanda have already sort of inspired two plays I've written, so I'm not surprised. They are awesome.
I don't really know how it couldn't be sort of... well, how could they have made really serious songs? I'm just curious. I understand what you're saying, but I don't think it's a bad thing. The nature of the story suggests that anything attempting to be serious is so over the top anyway, that it ads a level of humor. I really like that aspect.
