I been listening through most of your discography and to me it seems like it was during this album you developed your "signature drum sound" that we all been enjoying for several years. The kick and snare has a certain knock to them with a very focused midrange. The best way I can describe it is that is sounds like anti CLA but has the same huge impact. It's especially apparent in the songs "Who's there" and "Radio". Was there a technique you discovered on this record or a piece of gear that led to that sound??

Would also like to know what you used for the intro guitar on "Diggin' your scene"??

If you have some other stories you'd like to share about your work with Smash Mouth, feel free to say them here. They were the first band I fell in love with during my trip to Florida in 98 and they played "Why can't we be friends" all the time on the radio. They were also the first live act I saw in a small club here in Sweden. I remember that they played a cover of Beastie Boys "Fight for your right" (which I hadn't heard before and I instatnly bought Licence to ill the next day)

Thanks for taking your time Eric!
