I was always weirded out by the creepy artwork on this album, but the songs eventually wore me down and forced me to buy it. The purchase of Throwing Copper marked my complete immersion in 1990s alternative rock.
About half of this album is super great and the other half is not quite as great. Songs like "I Alone" and "All Over You" are leagues better than "Waitress" or "Top." There's enough good stuff on this album to make it a worthy purchase, but it does suffer from a greater than usual reliance on filler.
