I am not sure I would call it fire, but I do like it and think that it is criminally underrated. Most people go from shitting on Zwan to shitting on Zeitgeist and skip over the album.
it has 1) great songwriting on most of the tracks, 2) lyrics that are passable, 3) good vocal leveling, 4) a pretty good guitar tone and album atmosphere
It does have a few weak tracks and gets sort of exhausting after a while, though. Some variation in tone would improve it. I remember HATING the Walking Shade song and video when it came out and feeling embarrassed to be a fan.
