Wow, what a great album! IMO it is so much better overall than Mer De Noms. The first 4 songs, The Outsider and Pet are pure genius songs, and the rest is still awesome. I haven't felt this good about a CD since Dream Theater's 6DOIT And I think that Jeordie White (Twiggy) did an excellent job on the bass on TTS, even though it's not too complex. Makes the moody songs moody and the rockers heavy.
