    Throwing Copper was True Talent. I assume they probably take a hit from those who blame bands like this being part of the de-evolution from grunge to Creed.

    Just saw them in concert a few weeks ago (along with Counting Crows), they hold up pretty well.

    I'm going with TT but it's pretty borderline. "I Alone" is enough though.

    Oh god, Throwing Copper is surely the better album, but Secret Samadhi was the one I listened to more. I used to put "Lakini's Juice" on repeat and just wallow in my misery. Early 1997: I was so close to starting my life with the woman I would go on to marry, and yet not knowing that, I was about as miserable as I could possibly be. I just put it on now and that familiar depression coursed through me like some kind of liquid pain.

    I couldn't stand Live when they first hit the scene. The passage of time has not improved my opinion.

    My big issue with them is the same I have with a lot of the post-grunge bands -- I can't stand when singers try to show they have STRONG EMOTIONS by straining their voices into their lower register. "Alternative" radio around the turn of the century sounded like a parade of constipated men.
    Things can always be worse.

    Fuck, man, I love that band. TT all the way. For me, their best record is V. As it happems I love Ed Kowalczyk's voice and hate the voices of the singers of most of the '90s bands mlyons likes. As far as Top 40 pseudo-rock radio hits, you can do much worse than "Lightning Crashes," let alone "I Alone" and "Overcome."
    I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous President who did not understand that but I understand that and we have spoken about this before.

    Please note this post was made by the 2012 NFL Losers Pool Champion.

    I'll put this much on record. "I Alone" is an unimpeachably great pop song.
