1997. Heard the Doors-ish Walkin' On The Sun on the radio. Liked it. Bought this CD. Found a few decent tracks. Skipped the rest. Thought it wasn't my thing. Put CD on shelf for 17 years. Pulled it out today. Better than I remember it. Will give it a listen poolside next summer as it seems better suited to that environment.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #19
Tracks: Remember that I haven't heard this ska punk in a while, but today I'm digging the first four tracks as well as the Fonz, Disconnect the Dots and the cover of Why Can't We Be Friends. I want to skip the rest, which tend to be heavier and more frantic. At only 37 minutes, the whole thing is over quickly anyway.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: Reminds me of the year I taught 8th grade English. Longest year of my life.
