Not In On the Joke

One album rips and grooves.  One album will pummel you to a pulp.  One album will make your ears bleed for all the wrong reasons.  Which album is which?

I Don’t Think We’re There Anymore

On a stormy sea of moving emotion, tossed about, I’m like a ship on the ocean. I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear the voices say…
