Release and reception

The album spawned two singles, "Ridin'" and "Slit My Wrists". The lyrics are sleazier and more sordid than on the band's first album, suggesting considerable rock n' roll excess within the band at the time. The bonus track (untitled on the sleeve, but officially called "Open My Eyes") suggests an end to this due to a successful relationship. The CD version of the album is currently out of print as of June 2010, though iTunes and Spotify still feature the album in their libraries.
