    Passive, Imagine, Counting Bodies and When the Levees Break, that is all you need from this album.

    Pretty much loathed this album for the past 10 years apart from 'What's Going On' and 'Passive', but finally i'm starting to appreciate it and enjoy it. Better late than never, i guess...

    Don't understand all the hate for it, it's actually one of my favorite records by them besides Thirteenth step

    why the hell did they lose time doing this crap instead of doing an album with original songs?

    What's with the hate? I didn't know this album was so unpopular among the fanbase. I consider it such a great piece of art.

    Counting Bodies is a great song. I think a lot more people would like this album if we had never heard the original versions. I like that they didn't regurgitate the song right back to us, they threw the song into the APC machine. Does it work? Yeah, if you're a huge APC fan. I can't listen to their versions of "When The Levee Breaks" and "People Are People", however. Not bad. Different.

    I love the diversity of this album. That's one reason that makes it so unique.

    Thought this one clicked on me the other day. Has some good moments but too many bad ones as well and the only APC song is a big disappointment in my opinion. Sure, expectations are high but that's why we listen to these guys, isn't it?
