I took to My Favorite Headache straightaway. I love "Home On The Strange". I wouldn't skip any of the tracks.
Alex Lifeson's Victor took a little getting used to, but the tracks are good, and I love "Shut Up Shuttin' Up".
P.S Your cat timeline is touching and sad. I would have five on mine, from 1999. Have two three year-olds at the moment but will add more!
The cat timeline is touching and sad, but they're not mine; they were the cats of the members here, and the members allowed me to commemorate their feline's memories in my virtual garden, whereupon they play among the flowers and the trees.
