True story: When I bought Godsmack's debut album, my dad made me take it back because of the name (and maybe also because the singer was a Wiccan, I forget). I got Deftones' Around The Fur instead — apparently all the cleavage was not a problem? Anyway, thanks Dad!

As for the first two albums, I maintain that Days Are Gone is overrated and Something To Tell You is underrated. So many of those Something To Tell You tracks hit like classics when they headlined P4K last summer.

Critics have had access to this album for months, which is usually the case for bands on Pottery's level. As for why P4K ran its review so early, no idea.

Also 98-02 high school for me, but this one somehow passed me by. I do, however, remember downloading leaked White Pony tracks. "Feiticeira" was labeled "New Murderer," I believe.
