Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine  (Editor rating: ** ½)
¤  Sounding like a suburban, melodic white-funk-injected version of King Missile's performance art/standup comedy, "The Distance" became a novelty hit in the fall of 1996, sending Cake's second album, Fashion Nugget, to platinum status. Certainly, "The Distance" was the only reason Fashion Nugget went platinum, because the remainder of the album is too collegiate and arcane for mainstream music tastes. It isn't because it's obscure or intellectual — it's because the band is smirking. An "ironic" cover of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" is the key to the album, sending the signal that Cake consider themselves above everyone else, and nothing is too insignificant to make fun of. And that wouldn't necessarily have been a problem if they had the wit or musical skills that would make their music either funny or listenable. Instead, they wallow in sophomoric jokes that rely on self-consciously elaborate wordplay. ¤  Occasionally, their blend of collegiate musical styles — funk, hip-hop, alternative rock — makes the music easy to digest in small doses, such as "The Distance," but it isn't varied enough to prevent the album from becoming tedious when played straight through.

Description in french:
¤  "Du toupet, de l'humour et un véritable sens de la mélodie avec une approche du rock sans complexes, Cake a de quoi séduire un public large. Un premier CD leur permit de se faire la main. Cette deuxième livraison fit d'eux des stars. Il contenait la version épique de "I Will Survive", l'hymne footballistique de Gloria Gaynor. Cependant, Cake vaut plus que cette adaptation inspirée. Le groupe joue sur plusieurs tableaux avec beaucoup de goût : rap, rock, et même des touches country. L'approche des instruments est inventive, en commençant par un jeu de guitare à la fois intuitif et plein d'imagination. La voix et les textes de John McCrea allient cynisme bon enfant et pamphlet grinçant. Il parvient à écrire de désarmantes ballades avec le même naturel. L'utilisation d'une trompette espiègle complète leur art du touche-à-tout avec de l'esprit ("Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps"). "Fashion Nuggets" est une révélation."
¤  C'est la période de la galette des rois, vous en prendrez bien une part ? Un gâteau en provenance de Sacramento qui a su trouver un style original dans le genre rock alternatif au coeur des années '90.
