Providing a fusion of rock ('Middle Man'), funk ('Theme Song'), pop ('I Want To Know'), metal ('Desperate People'), jazz ('Broken Hearts'), punk ('Which Way To America"'), reggae ('Glamour Boys')

The album was also incredibly consistent, as proven by the rocker "Middle Man" (which contains lyrics from a note penned by Glover, in which he pondered suicide), the funky, anti-racist "Funny Vibe," the touching "Open Letter (To a Landlord)," plus the Caribbean rock of "Glamour Boys.
