this was the first of their two albums.
mostly a good bit different from precious death, definitely more 'poppy', but still excellent.
a bit lighter, but chris's awesome vocals are still here and some great songwriting throughout.
it might not have aged that well...but fuck it. it was great in 1996 and i, for one amongst many, can still appreciate it for what it was. i'm sure i'm dating myself for loving this album, but once again, fuck it :)
"wither", "super heavy dreamscape" and "not the way i want to be" are some of my faves.
