The group's third Reprise album continues in the vein of its previous releases, with a balance of straightforward pop songs and experimental freakouts that perfectly align with the band's name. The psychedelic '60s had its share of oddities, and among those this album ranks highly. Though some fans at the time considered A Child's Guide a letdown from the group's previous releases, with time and distance it sounds equally appealing in its own way. "Eighteen Is over the Hill" starts things with a mix of vocals and harmonies that could be Harpers Bizarre, while "In the Country" adds extra oomph to the band's country-pop-psych attack. "Ritual #1" furthers the band's reputation with fresh melodies. "Our Drummer Always Plays in the Nude" is a sprightly, upbeat little number with the usual mild perversities tucked inside the lyrics. Note: "Anniversary of World War III" is complete silence, a tribute to John Cage. "Shifting Sands" and "1906" are mono single mixes from songs that appeared on the group's album Part One
