    The arrangements are so flush with guitar hooks and buoyant harmonies that these tunes are entertaining even when they're not catchy. [Oct/Nov 2001, p.108]

    Definitely a stronger album than "A Place in the Sun". While a couple songs on this CD I could have done without, Lit does the pop/punk thing Definitely a stronger album than "A Place in the Sun". While a couple songs on this CD I could have done without, Lit does the pop/punk thing well and a lot better than their musical peers with the exception of maybe a couple of bands. Full Review »

For This is one of those CDs where after the first listen you are a little disappointed. It's not that the songs are bad, far from it. For me it just took a couple of times for the songs to sink in. I love all their other work and I didn't fall for this one so quickly. After listening to it a few more time...forget about it. It's great. As good as anything they've done before. It just took a couple of listens. Some of my favoirite CDs are ones that I initially was lukewarm about. Lit is one my favorite bands. Full Review »

Rife with wailing guitar & impressive songcraft, "Atomic" is a must-have. Full Review »
