The songs contained within are incredible. Unfortunately, there are a few mellow tunes ("Brother Wolf..." and "Black Angel") that will really make you want to cry or sleep, depending on your mood. They are good, and the lyrics are well crafted, but they are too long. There are a couple of Euro-Pop tunes ("Nirvana," "Rain" and "Revolution") which sound kinda 'blah' now, but they are listenable. The true treasures on this Cd alone make it a 5-Star purchase: "Big Neon Glitter," "Love," (so good, they used the same riff later for the ELECTRIC version of "Wild Flower"), "The Phoenix," (no 80's song rocks this hard or well--not one...it still gives me goose bumps), "Hollow Man," (I heard a band cover this a few years ago...a buddy at the show asked me, 'is that a Foo Fighters song?') and "She Sells Sanctuary." Though I mentioned it as a negative, "Brother Wolf..." is a great song, too. It's 7 minutes long, though.
