I got this CD a while back in the late 90's, and it holds up pretty well with all the pop and programming that's been around since then. The album tries to mirror apollo four fourty's "blue" album (IMO) and tries to utilize lyrics and tone like Pulp. They had a distinctive, yet common sound but also had a way of mixing that created this good disc. I had the version which had the remixing software (which has phased out through time, but still is fun). It was an interesting experience of a disc, but not good enough to advise that anyone pay full price for the disc now.
