Outside of a song or two, I never really listened to that album until a few years ago when I picked it up on vinyl at a flea market for a few bucks. It's different, but I really like it. It is so... identifiably Vai. The album has a sense of humor, it swings, it shreds, it's quirky but also mainstream. Not the greatest songs in the world, but still a good album. I also like 5150. Just to play devil's advocate, I'm not sure it's that people ignored that some of the music was silly, I think it's that that was part of the appeal. There's plenty of room for seriousness in rock, but also plenty of room for fun, party music. IMHO rock has swung way too far to the former. VH and DLR are a good time, even though they definitely rock.. I kind of miss that. YMMV.
