I don't think that there is one Oils song that I don't like...they are all 
great songs in their different ways.  So I guess I really don't have any 
issues with Breathe...in fact Bring on the Change and Underwater are two of 
my favorite Oils songs.  I guess since I like so many different genres of 
music, it doesn't matter what style the Oils play (Ok...well I guess I 
probably would have started to worry if they would have put out a rap 
album.)  Often times I like their more obscure songs better anyways....I 
actually really enjoy In the Rain.  Anyways...I guess I'm just surprised by 
how many of you out there bash the album Breathe or won't even listen to it 
at all.  Yeah...I guess I was sort of disappointed when I got the album when 
it first came out and I put it on and it wasn't what I was expecting, but 
even so I have to say that now I like it just as much as any other Oils 
album.  I think it's just a matter of maturing appreciation for music of all

I really like Breathe.  There are 5 songs from it that I do not listen to, 
but I just love the rest.  They are the following:

Surf's Up
Time to Heal
Bring on the Change
Barest Degree

In my opinion, the list above is a better album than either Head Injuries or 
the first album, although surely it depends on my mood.

My favorite Oils albums tend to have a section of at least three songs in a 
row that I consider to be the euphoric high point of the album.  Breathe's 
genius streak is Home/E-Beat/Barest Degree.

Well, thanks for reading.
