(Admittedly, I pondered: if the entire album had taken unexpected flight the way that the rapturous "Swept Away" does, COEXIST might have been one for the books.)

After an astonishing debute, this was a real letdown, even if usually the second album can't live up to the high standards of the first. It's just bland and boring.
