They were kind of ballsy moves at the time. Even if they weren't classics.
I bought and played both of them to death too. Honestly, I thought the New Danger was good at the time. True Magic I don't remember much, but I would not have played it if I didn't like it.
It was kind of weird though that these two albums were distributed so heavily. At the time you had to go to a well-stocked Best Buy AT LEAST to find Black Star or BOBS, but there were copies of TNG and TM at, like, Fred Meyer and shit. I thoight that was odd. Anyway, I haven't listened to either album in forever, but I doubt they deserve the bad rap they generally received.
