You're not alone, TraktorBass. I voted 8 Soothing Songs For Rut on 3rd place in the ÃƒËœya poll. Imagine MP stretching that one out for two hours, including We All Float Down Here (Too). I'd love to see how they'd pull that off!
Lobotomizer is crappy but more unique than Soothe though I prefer the latter. Problem is that it could be any record from any grunge band with the exception of the wonderful Lighthouse Girl, which felt like a blueprint for things to come.
But whatever you make before an album like Demon Box can't hold up against it.
