WOW. I feel sorry for people that think this is the pinnacle of musical talent. They obviously have missed out on real music. This album sounds like the soundtrack to some mediocre foreign film. Almost every song's acoustic riffs are stolen from other songs, and then they try to cover it up with a bunch of background noise. The lead singer should be replaced. The lyrics are typical for a garage band. I truly feel sorry for people that enjoy this. It's all about perspective. The people watching Gunsmoke were amazed at the picture quality of their television sets...if only they knew how advanced the technology would become. They'd be equally amazed if they discovered how crappy and mediocre modern music would become.
