One of my favorite albums ever from one of my favorite bands ever. Ah, the memories... being 15, sitting in my room night after night, furiously scribbling deep thoughts, profound and character-setting revelations, while listening to this album. I can say now, that some years have gone by, as I look back, that this album has a major responsibility in directing how I came to be as I am now. And some of these songs are on the radio, you'll find them on the generic new metal station, funny huh? This is a great album, some of these songs can still blow me away at times, and my appreciation of these guys has always been increasing.
