"If you like your Theory of a Deadman uncut, this import version is the one you want.
Roadrunner, the label that released the album in the US, chose to release only an edited version; 604 Records, the label that distributed Gasoline to the rest of the world, chose to release only the uncensored."
A great album, but why the unneeded censorship?

"You're probably asking, "why is a metalhead reviewing this?" Yes, I am a metalhead, but that doesn't mean I can't like a few rock bands. I just wanted to review it simply because like other reviewers, I'm wondering why there's no explicit version for this? It's just a couple of words, what's the point of it? The band's first album has the PA logo (that's Parental Advisory if you didn't know), but it's mainly for 1 song. You listen to their new album (which also has the PA logo), you're actually gonna hear a couple of songs that warrant the PA. In a way, I feel cheated, but not really. I usually pay attention to things like this before I buy music, but in this case, it couldn't be avoided. Hopefully, if you're somebody like me, you'll find out about it by reading online rather than buying it first and finding out the hard way. I almost cringe a little bit when I listen to No Surprise as Tyler sings "That all this lying gets to me, and no one seems to give a....(insert expletive here....without actually hearing it that is). If somebody can give a more clarified explanation as to why Roadrunner decided on doing this, it would be greatly appreciated. As far as the music, it's great. Their debut is also great, but Gasoline is a big step. The song writing has definitely gotten better, their first album seemed kinda rushed. Kinda flawed, but not extremely. This is my favorite that they've done so far. Also check out Scars & Souvenirs if you like this album."
