The sequence of tracks on Tusk is often disturbing, but then that was probably the point. You can listen to those first five tracks and get a pretty good idea of the range of the album. As much as I would have chosen a different opener, it was clever to begin with Over and Over--the apotheosis of California easy-listening pop--and then move to "The Ledge," which is just outright bizarre. "Think About Me," which follows, seems to synthesize the approaches to both of the previous songs--a poppy melody and vocal underpinned by crunching, rowdy guitars and spirited drum work.
Still, I would have loved to see the song "Tusk" open the record.
