True, B.T.O. only really represent Winnipeg.

Ok, that's fair. If the Bachmans and Burton Cummings are all from Winnipeg, then maybe Winnipeg > San Jose. Well, except for weather.

listening to this again the other night, i was struck for the first time at just HOW lugubrious and aimless the slow blues-rock section of "Jesus is Just Alright" really is. like if i just think of the song, it's the peppy opening section, which is repetitious as hell but at least energetic. then the bottom dropped out and i found myself listening to the absolute dead end of a genre, and possibly the dreariest thing to ever get regular classic rock radio airplay, for what seemed like hours. it was an indescribable relief when the clean, bright, chords of "It Keeps You Running" came parping in afterwards.

had a similar but far less intense reaction to the infamous "Black Water" coda, which has always kind of sailed by me harmlessly. headphone listening really heightens the cheesiness of the effort and especially the dopeyness of the fade out/fade back in of the band.
