All relevancy issues aside, this is a pretty strong album. I know you can find most of the songs on other CDs but this is, without that in mind, a nice collection of some pretty good songs. Personally, I love the album's title track "People are People" (who doesn't? It's classic DM), "Now this is fun" and "Told you so". Work hard is insane, what were they thinking when they recorded it? I only listen to "Pipeline" for a little while and then I get tired of it, but I like the metallic dragging and pig-ish noises in the beginning. Other than those two this CD is classic pre-love tragedy (I have a theory on Martin's subject matter, ever notice how a lot of the songs seem to be about a relationship with a girl that could be really great except that the girl hesitates because of her own insecurities? I noticed because I'm in the same situation-he's taking the words out of my mouth here) DM. It's not as good as Violator or the newer album Exciter (which you should buy first because it'll keep DM on the radio) but it can still hold its own.
