I think the swearing is kind of a microcosm of the album's intentions. It's a record that seems quite calculated to me, like they're trying to reach lots of different audiences with all the different styles. So the song titles have profanities, and they're in the lyrics, to try and appeal to harder rock and metal fans who dismiss melodic rock as wimpy. Even though anyone over the age of 12 knows that swearing doesn't make you a fucking tough guy......

I actually like the album, but there's something missing that I can't put my finger on. The only song I'm not keen on is Time On Our Side, which is easily the worst Gronwall era track imo. God knows who thought it was a smart move to release that one first! Anyway, the other songs are all good, and some are very good, but their last two album were world class and maybe good just isn't enough for H.E.A.T?

I also think they're lacking that swaggering, almost arrogant, hard rock groove the last two albums had. I wonder if that maybe came from Eric Rivers and his playing style?
