the flicker and the flame
I mostly remember the controversy this album spurned on this very site when it came out.
With that said, though, after downloading "This Photograph" and "A Decade Under" on WinMX (old school maneuver), I thought the ban sounded bigger and was going to be massive. I suppose, in a way, it happened later on down the road. Anyway, this album never say right with me until a year or two later (probably close to when Louder Now was released) when I realized just how many strong hooks it contains. Definitely have to say it could be my favorite of theirs now, but I don't know. I'd have to think about that, only because TAYF had a much more profound impact on my musical tastes.
