I remember buying this album the moment it came out and listening to it ad nauseum, all the while skipping every one of Robby's songs. I don't think I ever heard the album in full until just a few years ago.
DUTG was pretty definitive for me back in 98 as a 13yr old, but they just took too long to for the followup. It's close enough to DUTG to have a lot of the same good qualities and the darker mood helps some tracks, like 'Truth is a Whisper' and 'What Do You Need"? Still, by 2002 I'd discovered stuff like Pixies, VU, My Bloody Valentine and lost interest in the GGD. I still listen to DUTG occasionally, and deep down I know I would be all over this album if it had come out just a couple of years earlier.
