10 - Amazing CD. Everyone should own it.

8 - One of the top CDs around, but could have been improved in a few places.
7 - Not a bad CD, but could have been better in a number of places.
6 - Pretty good for it's genre, but overall it's only acceptable.
5 - Decent CD, but only if you're a big fan of this genre.

This is one of my favorite albums of all time. The music is amazing, the lyrics are profound, the energy is just perfect. I gave it a 10.

9/10. Amazing album! It's got amazing, catchy music, and some very unique, thought provoking lyrics. The only reason I gave it a 9 in stead of a 10 is because of the "Spider" songs. All three of those songs quickly got deleted, plus a couple other songs are only average. But a majority of the songs are nothing short of superb.

I gave it a ten...I also gave "Catch For us the Foxes" a ten, but this album, IMO, is better. Within the context of the album, I actually really like the three "Spider" tracks. I also really enjoy Jeremy Enigk's parts on "O, Porcupine". I didn't know he was a guest vocalist on the album at first but when that track came up I remember thinking, "that sounds a lot like SDRE". I used to listen to this album over and over again in the car. Definitely an all time favorite for me.

Easily my most listened to band, and this CD is amazing. I give it a 9/10, with "O' Porcupine" being my favorite. Lyrically amazing, musically suberb

And by "suberb", I meant "superb"
