Your first point is a fair one. Speaking personally, his new appearance was more than a bit off-putting and as I hated the songs that "Pretty Fly (for a Rabbi)" and "The Saga Begins" ("American Pie") -- the lead singles -- were based on, I was pretty lukewarm about Running With Scissors. However those two as well as "All About the Pentiums" and "White and Nerdy" were big on MTV. I had stopped watching that channel by the time the follow-up came and I'm not sure how well received its singles were.
Speaking of that his music defies radio airplay, especially in the current media environment, and with MTV not really airing videos anymore it's hard to gain exposure. "Word Crimes" was big though.
