Let me start off by saying that I own this CD and I will still occasionally listen to it, an dit really is not that bad of a CD. Now to why it only got three stars.
I've heard so many people say that this is by far the hardest stuff Everclear has done, until I get them to hear Sparkle and Fade or World of Noise. This CD is lacking that edge, most of the songs are angry, however I never really feel the anger.
While not a bad CD, it is still a pop album, no way around that fact. If you're looking for some good hard rock, then go get a copy of World of Noise, or Sparkle and Fade, those are two of the best albums I personally think ever put out. If you are more into So Much for the Afterglow, or Songs From an America Movie Vol. 1 style music you should really love this album.
