My favorite song on this album though is “Chemicals”, mainly because of the contrast in not wanting our children to grow up in a world full of chemicals but also the fact that we have to take our chemicals to feel better. It’s like one of those moral issues when you tell your children, “Don’t take drugs… except---“
In the end, this is still just a rocking album that you must listen to while tapping your foot along and hopefully getting something out of the lyrics. I must add though, that as I listen to this album and sit inside a Dunkin Donuts in central Connecticut, I can’t help but find it funny that there is a group of old white men at a table to my right having a discussion about the government. They’re complaining about healthcare and money in contrast to the way these songs are singing about them. I want to give them my headphones to listen to this song, but you know, they’re really old and germs and all.
