I too think it's decent, but has not blown me away. I'm surprised the production isn't light years ahead of the original since it is 20 years later, but maybe that is testimony to the strength of Mood Swings I.

The new songs are good, especially Anarchy, and there are a couple of rerecorded songs I think are stronger (notably "Mandy"--what a beautiful tune). But Harry to me does not sound quite as good and seems to be over-singing a tad (and is even out of tune once on "Stranger than Love").

That said, it's made me listen to Harem Scarem's back catalog a lot more in the past couple weeks. Bring on a new album!
