MatthewS.Mar 16, 2002Semisonic are an easy target for barb-tounged critics because their music is simple, sweet, and, yes, a little sappy at times. But if you are Semisonic are an easy target for barb-tounged critics because their music is simple, sweet, and, yes, a little sappy at times. But if you are willing to suspend your judgment long enough to enjoy Dan Wilson's gorgeous songwriting and the band's varied sonic textures, you might find something you like on "All About Chemistry."… Expand
