I actually think it's probably their most underrated album

Sure, it's not as good as the albums that preceded it but it's not as far behind as one would think from its reputation (I will admit that it's pretty front-loaded though). And yes, it's better than "Long John Silver" but I think that one's underrated as well. I dunno, I'm a sucker for the JA sound so even on those later albums where the material's not very memorable, I still enjoy listening to them.
Aside from the song you mentioned, my favorites on "Bark" are "Feel So Good", "Pretty As You Feel" and "Crazy Miranda". I also kinda like Grace's goofy German song.
