    This Truely is their best songs. If u were a new fan buy this album. It is a must Get C.D. I like it because of their style. The best darned Style ever. My favorite song is jungle man. After hearing this C.D. they will be your favorite band. After reading this u should go out and buy it. I promise you will love it. If u dont like it keep the recept.

    Good, yet a little bit softer...

    This CD is a good one, but it's not my all time favorite. The songs that i really liked where Higher Ground, Johnny kick a hole in the sky, and Me and my friends.
