    Like someone said, take off CSLY and put on Crossing Over and it’s the darkest in the catalog.

    Fair Warning is more angry and the lyrics are more urban. I wouldn’t say it’s a darker album than Balance.
    People think it's dark because the lead single was. Don't think many are giving it much more thought than that.

    The whole undertone is dark to me. Except for CSLY which was literally written to brighten up the album per Fairbarn’s request.

    Not Enough is not an upbeat love song. It’s more depressing than their ballads had been.

    It's a little darker lyrically just because Sammy didn't give us a Black and Blue or a Spanked or an Up for Breakfast (and I thank him for that). But it's nothing like FW. I'd say it's a more serious record as opposed to a dark album.

    Songs about death, suicide and love lost are dark themes to me.

    it's VH, most people don't pay attention to the words. Hell I still don't know what Dave is talking about 3/4 of the time.

    I dunno, aside from DTMWLCD, "The Seventh Seal" and "Feelin'" are definitely dark.

    I don't think there's anything dark on 5150 or OU812 though. FUCK has JD and PD, then "Humans Being" and "Learning to See." That's about it from that era.

    Really. As opposed to ‘Warning’s album cover with its rendition of Kurelek’s depictions of torture, depression, pain, aggression, schizophrenia and holocaust?

    Lol. Get it together, guys. VH1 ain’t dark. Fair Warning is. ABC. 123.

    You make a good point about the FW album cover, which is pretty menacing & dark.

    I remember looking at the guy getting his face punched, and thinking:
    This is interesting....

    I do think the cover sort of creates a darker tone, psychologically.
    "Balance" has a kind of dark cover, as well.

    It was a rudimentary joke I guess. It’d be more accurate to say it went beneath me, not over me. And it’s not even accurate if it’s based on lighting. That accolade would obviously go to OU812.
