Yep, fav album from ATDI this one. Not a fan of the production/sound on Relationship of Command. This one sounds a lot more natural. And this one is more unique to me. The passion is BRILLIANT here. Napoleon Solo - LEGENDARY.
funny how despite its supposedly more raw production and attempt at capturing the energy of their notorious live shows, it still appears domesticated, toothless and castrated next to relationship of command.
It's crazy how much a band can transform between albums. Given how aggressive Relationship of Command is compared to this. What's even crazier is that At the Drive-in pulled it off easily and created two of the best albums ever.
It's not a crap album, but it wasn't their best either. If you give it sometime, it turns out to be a good record. Alpha Centauri is a great opener, and Napoleon Solo is quite emotional if you know the story behind the song.
