    About 3 songs I really like from these guys without caring for much else. 'Smooth Criminal' and 'Movies' are not amongst those 3.

    >Крутая банда. и уж точно не одной песни. - От себя скажу, что группа конечно же сверхпопулярная, и мегахитовая, даже ласт говорит, что за неделю кавер на Джексона прослушали в 6 раз чаще, чем первый трек с альбома)

    they're a 'one-hit-wonder' only if you're lazy enough to not to listen to their 3 full-length studio albums. stop whining, start listening.

    Wish and These Days aren't bad songs, the cover song is not their best song it's just the most appraised.
