I think I bought this album due to Johnny Cash's cover of "The Beast In Me", although I could have heard Nick Lowe's first, but either way it blew my 16 year old mind. The somber confession of that song, plus the ache and longing of "Lover Don't Go", mixed with the tongue in cheek humor of "True Love Travels On a Gravel Road", "12-Step Program", "Where's My Everything?", and a few loose rockers make for an eclectic, inviting mix.
