Thematically, Misguided was shrouded in controversy even before its release. R.E.X. felt that some of the lyrics were too disturbing, so many of the lyrics were left out of the booklet insert. They also felt that a spoken word reprise for the song DOOMsayer was inappropriate and refused to allow it on the album. The creative forces behind Argyle Park snuck the reprise into the master on the end of the album without the record company finding out until it was too late. The album is a concept album that vents alot of rage and deals with some very dark reactions and emotions. Here are a few of Buka's words regarding Misguided:
"The album was against a person that we looked up to and trusted immensely. He betrayed our trust and led us down a path that brought us much pain and confusion. The sins that were commited against us and those close to us were grieveous and severe. Some of the people that were involved have still not recovered. We know that many of you feel that there is a lack of hope and forgiveness in the album, but the album was intended as a warning and a tool to teach people to be aware. We know all to well the meaning of ' wolf in sheeps clothing'..We said what needed to be said on Misguided and you can take it or leave it. We know that the album wasn't meant for everyone, but those of you who walked away with something more, well the album was meant and made for you."
