"Wild & Whimsical A Delight...It's cheeky and catchy and kitschy and showy and playful, frolicking through assorted theatrical-musical genres without ever crossing the line into irony or camp. Even the composer's three-track tribute to '60s lounge music, "Chrome-Plated-Gut-Waddin' Mondorofico," somehow comes off as both brilliant spoof and gobsmacked fanboy homage...At each stop on the way, he nails the genre — and the culture surrounding it — with such perfect joy and precision that you'll swear you've heard it before...There is no apology in Mallamud's music, no distancing with a protective layer of satire. It's as sincere as it is outrageous...The sum is an album of music conceived for imaginary stages in imaginary worlds, but rendered like old hands...the music is delightful. It's also insane. There's a nuttiness to the whole thing, a kind of crazed enthusiasm...But there's a beauty to it, too — and with all of that time-traveling, a timelessness."
