The Liner/Sleeve Notes:
The liner notes are just the song lyrics.

Personal Review:
 This one is an interesting one – mainly because I remember long ago, when I was a child, I recall seeing the cover (or maybe single) in a store, and back then it scared the hell out of me. When I bought this back in 2011, it brought back so many memories. So, it was cool.

 The A-Side is “Baby Happy” and well, it opens with some pretty cool drumming and some funky guitar playing before it goes off into the vocals, assuming Jordan Chasson is the vocalist, he has a pretty high pitched voice – and it’s not overly awful his high pitch, it’s just different and it works perfectly with the song. The line “She’s got ABBA on the turntable!” makes the song perfect, for the comic effect.

 The B-Side is “The Merger” which has some pretty badass guitar playing opening the song, it’s more about noise and music this song, then it is vocals, or maybe I’m wrong, but all I am hearing is the guitar playing, and I think I can hear some faint piano playing in the background? Anyways, I do prefer the vocals on this track as opposed to the first song, they have more of a punk vibe to them.
