My brother bought me this album for Christmas back in 1999. It was one of my first rock albums and while I don't consider it extremely influential in the types of music I listen to now, it's still an album I look back to with fond memories -- and for a lot more reasons than the original single that made my brother think to buy it. You've done a good job of detailing why this album is worth it.
I really appreciate it dude. Yeah, I know some will ultimately call me a fool or just hate on this band, but I really do love
this album. I can't say that about too many records. It just makes me feel good, and that really helps me to (obviously) overlook any missteps or things like that.
Thanks shmerms, youve been around for the whole ride.
