I got this album at the same time as my first CD player – a mini hi-fi (and the Black album as well, same day) for my birthday. It had been out for a year already by then but I had listened to it compulsively thanks to friends.

I still remember putting this on for the first time, and pouring obsessively over the booklet.

One of my top ten albums. I just love it, so much.

He clearly hasn’t seen it yet, or he’d be all over this page.

I liked some of the Teargarden stuff too, but it really annoyed me how upfront his vocals were.

Agreed. I don’t see how someone going country to country-pop to straight-out pop is particularly influential. Shania Twain, anyone?

Love this write-up. Great, overlooked album, but this is one of the best things I’ve read on Stereogum for ages.

Read all the comments, then listened, and therefore actually kind of enjoyed it. Nickelback, nah, cos they usually have a hook. Yes, this doesn’t cos of the different-to-normal song structure.
It’s FF, is all it is. This is what they do. Start out slow or medium, rev up, Dave yells, they rock on, and fade out.

I’ve not deified anyone, nor did I say I had. My point is that our ‘heroes’ … whether musical, political, sporting, academic, whatever … are simply people, like the rest of the world, and therefore open to mistakes.

It’s sad when your heroes turn out to be flawed humans.

Reporting on someone is different to stirring the shit.
