overlooked, for some reason

to this day i'm glad i still own this album after 15 years or so. Giants and Miles are the only songs i can definitely live without. the band covers the spectrum: hard rock (Pennywheels, Rotting Pinata, Plowed), epic songs with tinges of shoegaze (Neenah Menasha, Candy Corn), straight up pop (Molly) and ballads (Drownin'). all in all, a very well done album.

I don't understand...

...how every review from a "critic" seems to accuse this album of being "half-finished" or unfocused when in fact it is (still) a very versatile and refreshing piece of work from a very under-appreciated band. I bought this album when it first came out 10-plus years ago and I STILL listen to it to this day. I happen to enjoy how every song doesn't sound like the one before (Angels & Airwaves...I love you but you're guilty of this...) and I'm not the only person I know who feels this way. If you don't own this album and you appreciate music at its fundamental level (expression without trying to fit into a mold) YOU SHOULD BUY THIS ALBUM. The 30-second samples on here don't do the album justice and like all great works of music the best pieces weren't big-hit singles (I personally love Neenah Menasha and Fields). Buy it; you will NOT be disappointed.

This is still *fun* to listen to. I was never a raging STP fan, so I was never distracted from the music by the critic's call to look down my nose at this album as a "STP ripoff." Personally, I find the stuff here lively, loud, and sometimes ferocious, and it's still a favorite after all this time.
