Might have something to do with when you first heard it and expectations. If you got into the Enz in retrospect and had heard some rumblings fom the Frenz community, maybe it pleasantly surprised.
I remember waiting and waiting for that album and thinking it was going to be the bees knees: the prior album (T&T) was awesome and they seemed on top of their game, they had all the extra time to write the songs (esp Neil), and the pre-interviews I saw/red talked of how eager they all were to record. So... with all that factored in, it was a little bit of a let down for me. I tried very hard to like the songs (and really, should you have to "try" to like music?) but it never really clicked with me. Mind you, it didn't do anything to dis-spell the "magic" of the Enz to me.
The only album that I think I had huge expectations for AND that subsequently met those expectations was the debut Crowded House album. Twas a blissful year.
