It is hard to compare apples/oranges...so it might be unfair to say that this is todd's best album since the great three (something/ anything, AWATS, Todd). Definitely a complete, coherent album.
Excellent way to start things off.
I am hopelessly hooked by this catchy number.
Beats compassion and mated hands down. Does anyone else have the problem of distinguishing mated and compassion?
Change of pace.
Great live. Can't Beat it.
Probably one of todd's most marketable rock songs. But this little toddy stayed home.
The musically-disadvantaged song of the album. Yeah, i know its "pregnant with meaning", but....
Great soul. Guitar parts in concert were unbelievable.
I am here with all my brethern on this one. Maybe todd's best overall song. There are todd songs that hit lyrically; others hit musically; others (my angel) hit because of the singing. Hawking does not excel at any one of these. Its the mood that makes it special - i would say meditative.
Speaking of brethern. Todd needs to get silly.
