Featuring better production than the debut album, Two Places at Once is a much tighter affair, with much happening throughout. Side one features a number of smaller sketches, with social commentary interwoven with smart television and radio parodies. It's side two, however, that makes this album worth having. The side-long "Further Adventures of Nick Danger" is a nearly perfect parody of a detective radio play, with sharp wordplay and interesting characters. The more fully developed nature of the piece makes the album worth repeated listening, which isn't the case with many other comedy albums released at about the same time. ~ Sean Carruthers
