1 stars I bought this album during my alternative rock period back in 1993 after viewing the awesome video for "Sober". A big disappointement, as one good song doesn't make a good album...

Of course, "Sober" is an amazing song... it's dark, it's heavy, it has great lyrics and the constant mood change creates a strong atmosphere. "Prison Sex" is another great song, but the rest of the songs are just average (missing a bit of variety too). The pointless "Disgustipated" (15+ minutes of mantra and white noise) doesn't help increasing the quality of the album - but it should be considered as a bonus track.

Rating: 51/100
