This album is pretty much exactly what you expect. Big choruses, and dumb lyrics. I haven’t deciphered the lyrics fully but I doubt they deal with politics, world hunger or the threat of global overpopulation. There is a song called Social Disease though, which I guess could be about the AIDS crisis.
Wikipedia tells me that currently this album is the 21st best-selling studio of all time. There are only so many strip clubs in the world though, which probably explains why it stalled at #21.
