Ever since I heard Suggestions, I haven't been able to stop listening to SOAD. I couldn't listen to a lot of their songs because of their ever changing tempos and varied styles. I come from listening to Dream Theater, Iron Maiden, Guns 'N Roses etc and SOAD is nothing like I've ever heard before or heard since. I've been eagerly awaiting this new album, especially after I heard Byob and Cigaro. Can't wait till the follow up comes out in the fall!

This is to all those people who think 'Cigaro' is about their respective penises. Please look over the lyrics and compare it to America's policy with respect to the rest of the world. At least I think that this song is about Bush's walk into Iraq, something like Byob I don't mean to be picky, but while reading through the reviews put up on this page, I just felt that it had to be said!
