i had it when it was brand brand new, yellow cover and all, and loved it!
most notably the last half of the album (guess that would be side 2 on the record? if there is a record?)
kids at school would laugh at me for liking it, though they only knew the singles. i kept trying to sell people on it and they all thought i was a dweeb.
now here, in the magic computer future, i've been noticing that other people, people with really rad taste in music, still seem to have a love for this album as well and it's nice to finally be able to say, without shame, that it truly is a great record.
i also feel the same about counting crows "recovering the satellites", but that's another story.
so yeah, let's talk about why this is such a rad record, especially since the band dissolved into a crusty white turd after they cranked this out.
