I've been listening to WTTN the last week...it really is a great album and reminds you of great, exciting times of Meat's career....

It was never going to be as good as Bat 2 and thats why I think some people treat the album in a slightly negative way.

Martha is a weak song but other than that great song after great song.

One question though - why did Jim allow Original Sin and Left in the Dark go on the album?

I treat it in a slightly negative way as it was clearly a rush job to cash in on the success of Bat 2. It's still a mostly great album, but it's missing a bit of polish.

Martha a weak song? OMG, that’s imo the best on the album (and the best non-Steinman song Meat ever sang). Well, different people, different opinions I guess....

But I agree that the whole album is great!

A lot of people who like rock I find have a huge problem with the 3/4 waltz like tempo. One of the very few times we heard Meat tackle that (in the choruses here).
