Amazing group, amazing album... Way too underrated!

Dat Bass

I can't say enough about Robert Levon Been's bass. His tone is impeccable and some of the riffs he plays on this album are out of this world. Hyperboles aside, this is a very good album. There were a few too many duds on this album (which is semi-excusable, as the album runs 13 tracks at 1 hour and 6 minutes) for me to rate this 5 stars, but this is still a great album, if only for the bass.
