Mike on 1994's BTDS: "This was an album I very much needed to make-- an album wrenched out of my darkest depths while in the throes of an exciting variety of emotional torment, this album is a lot less goofy than hat." The result has been heralded as a masterpiece by critics and fans. Its songs have been a major part of Mike's live sets for years and head-ripping live versions are featured his 2006 Guitar Therapy Live release. BTDS has been unavailable for eons, and collectors have paid exhorbitant prices for it.
