I have the album, and enjoyed, but I felt something missing, other than Villans and Feshman, none of the songs convinced me to come back and listen, but being able to create one song that I consider a classic is accomplishment, and the freshman is a classic. This album won't hurt you collection, so if you want get it.

I got this disc solely because of the song 'The Freshmen'. It is good throughout- I guess you'd call it guitar power-pop. Regardless of categorizations, the music and lyrics are consistenly strong. 'Cup of Tea', 'Villains', and 'The Freshmen' are my favorite tracks. And 'The Freshmen' is such a great guitar song. Try arranging it for one guitar for a nice challenge.

The first half of the album is filled with great rock songs and feel, but the later half is the softer, mature sounds. This is a terrific album, with alternative spelled all over it.

1. Barely (if at all) 2. Drive You Mild 3. Villians 4. Reverend Girl 5. Cup Of Tea 6. Myself 7. The Freshmen 8. Photograph 9. Ominous Man 10. Real 11. Penny Is Poison 12. Cattle 13. Veneer

This album should at least be highly respected, as some of the songs are creative and unique, and some of them should have become singles and should still be heard even today, not just the freshmen but all of them.
