Get used to it, pal.  'Club Ninja' is something of a pet rock among
BOC-L.  I liked it okay enough for 'White Flags' 'Dancin' 'Perfect
Water' and 'Madness'.  The rest is pretty disappointing.  The band's
reliance on outside songwriters is pretty hit-or-miss.  The two Rob
Halligan tunes [I actually went to high school with him, a grade
later] are horrible. [His garage bands were awful, too!  But He's
made a career out of polluting good rock bands, c.f. his dreadful
contributions to Judas Priest] The necessity to go outside the band,
aggravated by Albert's departure, taking his fertile songwriting with
him, is seen by many on BOC-L as the beginning of the band's long
decline.  I'm inclined to agree.
