Toad the Wet Sprocket – “All I Want”

Great band. Terrible band name.

Has it really been 20 years since Toad the Wet Sprocket released “Fear?” The album was a slow burner, back in the day when a record could take months or years to find its audience and it wasn’t reason for a label to drop them. It took “Fear” more than a year to reach gold and more than three years to reach platinum, thanks in large part to the videos for “Walk on the Ocean” and “All I Want.”

“All I Want” may not be your favorite Toad song, but it’s probably the one that most people know. A little bit of pop perfection clocking in at three minutes and 16 seconds. If you ask me, it still sounds great 20 years later.
