Underrated as hell. I know this album is vastly different from what we'd come to expect from Butch, but the transition from M3 to solo has so many parallels. He basically showcases both styles on this record, and if songs like "If" or "Far Away From Close" don't cut you deep in the slightest, you're a robot.
"Suburbia" is still one of my favorite storytelling lyrical pieces from him. Everything about that song, the way it weaves through all of these characters, never fails to impress me.
Oh, and the bonus track is hilarious.
