There are no weak tracks -- no other BN album can claim that feat. It also creates a certain mood on record ("Tautou" is a big part) that few other albums capture in such a big way. It has most of the band's best songs, including what might be their best ("Sic Transit Gloria"). Live, the record's songs always work, and the band has a habit of playing around with the execution.
It was definitely the inspiration for me to learn guitar -- I just HAD to know how to play the first half of the record.
For me, the album works best in the fall when you're wearing a hoodie, watching the leaves change on a chilly, sun-setting afternoon. Ah.
