What's the deal you guys? Everyone seems to rank this album for it's "cheesy" light songs or sounding alike. I personally think this album is way better than SMFTA, just because it isn't as commercial, and it's more creative. It has some great pure rock hits (Santa Monica, You Make Me Feel Like a Whore, Summerland, Heartspark Dollarsign, Electra Made Me Blind) but it also has a nice mix of softer songs that you have to appreciate (Strawberry, Pale Green Stars, My Sexual Life). This album put Everclear on the map for a reason, and SMFTA was reassurance, but if you want the REAL Everclear, not the commercialized Everclear, GET THIS ALBUM! You will thank me! Get World of Noise also.
