Amoeba Review

For the past fifty(!) years, Sparks have been hard to pigeonhole as solely a "rock band." Shape-shifting over the course of their career into whatever genre struck their fancy (glam, disco, new wave, classical, etc) brothers Ron and Russell Mael have somehow made it all work, as displayed on their latest career spanning compilation Past Tense. Selected by the Maels themselves and presented in a few different iterations, Past Tense makes for a great overview of what has made the band consistently good in their own special satirical way.
