So i guess the whole band except for Jim Ward and Cedric the Entertainer was replaced between this record and the one before. It is really obvious because this album is actually not a load of stupid bullshit. None of the songs have any fruity crap in it and Jim Ward's screams in the background now sound like they mean something instead of just the wails of a pre-pubescent teen who just found out his mom took away all his hustler gay porn mags.
Musically, the band has really locked down a sound that is immediately much more satisfying than the preceding records. There's a lot of interesting stuff going on here.Maybe someone slipped something into their burrito bowls.
If every record they did after this one sounded like this, they still would go down as one of the all-time greats. They just had such a great vocalist in front of them! It'd too bad he ended up finding his true calling in life was to stretch peoples buttholes WIDE open and piss into them only to gargle the butt vomit that would eventually spring forth
