"Svengali" annoys me. It's repetitive. I don't even know what the point of it is. I also don't care for "Jung and the Restless." I love every other song on this record except those two. "Since I Gave Up Hope I Feel a Lot Better" is the most favorite though. And just so I don't forget - Steve Taylor's lyrics are some of the most creative and unique in Christian music.
Useless Fact: Steve got into a LOT of trouble for this record. First was the album cover. People though it looked like tarot card so everyone freaked out and pulled it from the shelves. "He's obviously endorsing the occult," they said. Then people honestly thought that Steve was endorsing clinic bombings with "I Blew Up the Clinic Real Good." How in the world could someone get that impression? I know... by being stupid and not understanding satire or sarcasm. Ugh! I've read that Steve himself called some Christian stores to explain the song to them. How about that all of us Christians make a pact - before we react to something we examine it THOROUGHLY and COMPLETELY before we freak out? Eh? Can we all do that? Maybe then we won't have such a bad reputation as intolerant bigots with no brains.
