Also, don't forget the other interpretation of "Faithful", taken from Wibbly's TR Disc Notes II:
"The second aspect of FAITHFUL was to have no corresponding promotional campaign. Todd's theory, which was proven correct, was fans would pass the word the new album was out and sales would be the same as prior releases due to their faithfulness."
And so, 20 years later (for all you *old* enthusiasts out there), here we are again, the start of the end.
(And BTW Wib -- if you're still out there -- when's the next installment? It's been 6 months since the last!)
I've often felt that if someone didn't like side 2 of this record, they'll never "get it" with respect to TR's music.
