The group's second album, Soup
, didn't do nearly as well as the band's debut, but it's one they are proud of. In our interview with Brad Smith
, he said: "Shannon, I think, meant every word that he said on the Soup
record, and that's why it's maybe even more critically acclaimed than our first record. Our first record sold many, many more units than our second record, but the second record had a lot more critical acclaim to it. People recognize it as the truth and pure. And I think that's the earmark of a great record."
