I agree with you.I like a few of the songs, but it just doesn't grab me as an album and at the time, it was not the album I wanted or expected in the wake of BitUSA. You are right about the "life-changing" thing for a lot of people. I was friends with a couple--now long divorced--and to this day, she swears that her ex-husband took the lyrics to heart--he would spend hours listening to it--and walked out on her. I don't know if that's true, but who am I to argue? Either way, that's life-changing.
