Yeh I've really come round to this album- I always thought the songs were pretty great, but the production was too ott and put me off. I've been listening to a lot of Springsteen lately and I can now see what they were aiming for on many of these songs: Because of the Shame sounds like it belongs on Born in the USA.
I agree with most users that this is their worst. Musically uninspired, and way too poppy and way too many "woah's". However, the lyrics on this album are still better than what most songwriters can come up with.
