Oh, man, what an album... one of my first CDs. The jewel case is ruined and I've had to repair the disc twice, but it's probably my most-listened-to album ever. Mayonnaise is my favourite cut on there -- I basically learned how to play guitar by figuring out that jam -- but the singles are otherworldly. Nothing sounds as much like the early-mid 90s to me as 'Today', and the video for 'Cherub Rock' seems to have been a template for a dozen or so (mostly Canadian, by my recollection) inferior rock bands to imitate -- some sorta outdoorsy studio set, odd colours and filters, and scary looking trees. God bless ye, Breihan, for taking some time to talk about this beauty of a disc

That skeleton guy is instant Canadian legend Jon Montgomery, who after winning his gold medal ran through Whistler chugging a pitcher of beer singing O! Canada. It was basically the greatest moment in Canada's history, except for that time when we finally got radio (circa 2008). He's also a car auctioneer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Montgomery
