That's such a feel-good solo ("Santeria" @ 1:45)

Listening to this album today, I felt as if either I had never heard the entire album before or that I simply didn't enjoy the album as a whole as much as I had before. In any case, it was convenient to have had familiarity with most of the songs on the album, because this made listening to the album easier than listening to a new album. I should also note that I very much enjoy a subset of the tracks.

Overall Rating: 3.0/5
Favorite Song: "What I Got"
