Originally intended as the follow-up to After the Rain, but turned down by
DGC/Geffen, Nelson finally put out the prescient album as the first release on their own Stone
Canyon Records label. An edgy, acerbic record which took aim at their unfair media treatment
and the threat of the Internet in the days of dial-up, Matthew recalls, “It was not the fun, sunshine
pop formula the label thought they were getting.” Adds Gunnar, “It was so cathartic and honest,
it’s emotionally painful for me to listen to now. It brings me back to a time when I felt we were
misunderstood by the industry.”
