Hidden Gems

This has some great songs, like "All Star" and "Come On, Come On", but there are many tracks that are just as good that are not as well known. "Radio" is an awsome song, as is "Who's There" and "Defeat You"; they just never made it to the radio charts. I deeply suggest trying these out.

One of the best albums ever.

I think that "Astro Lounge" should be in Rolling Stone's top 500 albums ever. This is much better than "Fush Yu Mang", which had many songs that sounded similar to each other. This is a very diverse album, though I would classify the genre as alternative, and not ska. You can definitely hear ska influences on "Road Man", and a few other songs, but not enough to actually classify it as ska. Overall, this is a great album, and the best songs are "All Star", "Stoned", and "Home".

Very Solid

This album came right in between Smash Mouth's punky-pop roots which, though catchy and energetic, lacked depth, and their more recent glitzy pop dreck. Say what you will about Smash Mouth, but the truth is, Greg Camp's songwriting on Astro Lounge is his best (some examples: Radio, Home, Then The Morning Comes, and especially Defeat You), making this one of the most solid alternative albums of the 90s. (If I could give this a 4.5, I would.)
