While this is far from the doom metal that Trouble were known for, this retro, psychedelic, groove based album is easily one of my favorite albums from Trouble. Each and every song has one of those infectious riffs, catchy choruses, and an incredible wall-of-sound production by Rick Rubin. If the Beatles had played heavy metal during their "Sgt. Peppers" daze, this might have been what it sounded like.

This is a fantastic album, and a creative breakthrouggh for Trouble. Not that what had come before was bad, or that the sound of Manic Furstration wasn't hinted at on the previous, self-titled release. A lot of the singular quality of the record is due to some unique production sounds tha tkeep things heavy without sinking into the mud, while adding in an unsettling, psychedelic haze. "Memory's Garden," "Come Touch The Sky" and "'Scuse Me" were all singles, and one would thing that in 1992, with everybody searching for something new musically, Trouble would have taken off, but they really didn't. Not a weak song on the disc, but best enjoyed from start to finish.

One reason it's best to listen to all the way through is that for some reason, the CD tracks are fucked up (on my own copy and a couple different downloaded versions I tried just to make sure). The tracks actually begin with the last second or so of the previous track, and for an album with really no space between tracks, that's very irritating. If you want to put the songs on your phone or whatever, you might want to use Audacity or some similar program to try and fix it up, just cut the first bit off each track and past it to the previous one, edit out any gap that remains. I did it. It's probably not perfect. Also, it's a very dynamic recording. Several songs seem to gradually get louder as they go along, so you hardly notice it, but when the next one starts at a normal level, it throws you off.
