New Zealand Music Month - Day 16

This one is surprisingly obscure given the number of familiar faces in the line-up. It starts off with a few instrumental/ambient type pieces, but all of a sudden becomes a fully-fledged Blams reunion with the superb Thief - the sort of song which contains enough ideas that most other groups would have spun them out over the space of an entire album. A couple of songs after that is the wickedly funny, mostly spoken-word and wordplay-rich Auckland; between them these two songs make the entire album worthwhile. Not that there's anything wrong with the rest of it, either.
