I quite disagree, as I think "Or" is the one true great song on the record.
Kim made a slow but steady vocal change/evolution away from her roots that were very influenced by Lydia and more towards straight ahead rock. I think that's great in terms of finding her own voice, trouble is, I like the roots the best. The early records often times have this dark/spacey little girl quality to her vocals that I actually prefer to Lydia's mining of similar territory. Around about the Dirty era, I think she kind of thrashed her voice singing over the wall of guitars and it took on a raspy quality that has never quite left. It can and often is used to great effect, but if I had to pick favorites over all of their recorded history, I end up with the list I posted above.
