Composition and critical reception
Written by lead vocalist Roland Gift and bassist David Steele, "I'm Not Satisfied" depicts a man who criticizes the weekends for being too short, his girlfriend for being too possessive, and the city for being too depressing. Allmusic writer Dave Thompson praised Gift's vocals, saying "so overpowering is his performance, so emotionally devastating is his dissatisfaction, that one is dragged straight into the maelstrom of misery."
