This is one of THE albums that shaped rock and metal in the 90s along with Nevermind, the Black Album by Metallica and (dare i say it!) Korn (urr, i said it!)
There isn't much wrong with this album, the musicianship is awesome, the songwriting is awesome and the songwriting is second to none and i don't really need to say anything about the singer!
There is so much variety throughout the album; Midlife Crisis, a classic FNM track, RV is a slow and sleazy one and there are a few dark, creepy ones like Jizzlobber and Caffene and no one can forget Easy!
The most noticeable progression from The Real Thing (1989) apart from the variety, is Patton's voice; it's so full and rounded compared to TRT's nasal Epic style singing.
This band was so far ahead of it's time that in the early 90s they revceived different opinions and their fan base wasn't as large as they deserved.
Innovative, influential, awesome! One of the albums of the 90s!
