The Spin Doctors will probably always be known for "Two Princes." A song that most people like but won't admit it. The song got a lot of flack for being cheesy. I don't know what the deal was... I like it a lot. In fact, I like this whole album. Granted, it's not something that I play on a regular basis but every once in a while it's nice to pull out when I want to hear something different. They groove through their ten songs with plenty of humor and hooks. I think these guys are underrated in terms of talent. I was never really interested in any of their follow ups because they all sounded like carbon copies of this disc.

Useless Fact: This album was out for a few years before the band made videos for a couple of their songs and their popularity blew up. Kind of like with Nirvana.
