It blew me away when it came out, but I wasn't really an SFA fan at that point. For many years, I would've considered it the greatest album of all time, but I've kind of burned out my desire to listen to it at this point. I also wish they'd stop playing the hits from RatW and Phantom Power at their live shows and start playing some stuff off the albums that came after them, even if the fans complain...cuz if you're a fan you should be tired of hearing some of those hits for the 200th time by now.
My first album was Guerrilla, which I bought on a whim, and was too uneven for me at the time. I love it now, though.
