Under The Radar

Hippopotamus bursts with the signature wit and tongue-in-cheek cultural prodding that characterize Sparks' greatest work.


As a band that seems perversely proud of being an acquired taste, this album shows Sparks are still in fine fettle, and this should delight their loyal fan base.

The Skinny

If you’re a fan of the band’s oddball humour, winding piano work and hyperbolic compositions, there’s a lot to like.

Purchasing Hippopotamus from Amazon helps support Album of the Year.
