4. Kiss Me
5. Easy to Ignore
6. Puedo Escribir

10. I Won't Stay Long
11. Love
12. Moving On
13. There She Goes

It makes my heart sad that this album will probably always and forever be remembered for "Kiss Me." "Kiss Me" is a good song for them, don't get me wrong. But this whole album is just amazing. They've recaptured the balance between sadness and hope, despair and wonder that characterized the debut and the two singles this album spawned are easily the worst songs on the disc. Of course "worst" being a relative term because they're not bad - there's just so much more this album has to offer. It's dirt cheap now so go get one!

Useless Fact: J.J. Plascencio must have left after this album was recorded because he's all through the liner notes as playing bass but not counted as in the band itself. Also, the picture up there is not the actual cover. The actual cover is on the back of the jewel case where the song list usually goes and is another painting by Steve Taylor's wife.
