"(They Found Me in the Back Of) The Galaxy"'s glory lays in how it is everything at once. Minimalist surf rock chords give way to eerie post-punk breakdowns, which give way to killer garage and back again. The lyrics are wonderful as well, with a real Malkmus quality to them; seemingly meaningless yet strangely deeper as well. Filled with wit and jokes that you feel you had to be there to understand, but intriguing enough to make you want to figure them out rather then ignore them. Any band that can jump from surrealist religious imagery to goofy space imagery is working at a level far beyond standard garage rock.
