    I like the title track of Strange and Beautiful, even if it does lean heavily on Kashmir. Not crazy about anything else, but the title track is cool.

    I don't really think that counts as a crime like Cold Lake, because even if it is a "cashing in on commercial trends" release, CG was never really an ultra macho band to begin with.

    The ST and Transcendence are great albums, but you can't deny both are extremely heavy on ballads.

    The album Mike is referring to isn't exactly a "the label forced them to wear ridiculous girly clothes" album. It sucks, but they did wear ridiculous girly clothes of their own free will from the start.

    It's not a good album. But it's not like a "ah, this ultra macho band got forced to write mainly ballads by the record label, what sell outs" type album. Because the first two albums are already insanely ballad heavy.

    Also, Strange and Beautiful isn't more of a sellout album than Fight For the Rock. It's not as bad as Streets either.

    Streets is fucking atrocious, I'm actually surprised no one mentioned it yet.
