    Saw this guy live on a late night talk show and honestly thought it was a joke. My garage band in Jr. High was more talented than this guy. He should be opening up before poetry readings at Starbucks.

    I considered giving Ben a point for sharing my name. Then I remembered how awful every minute of this record was. Ben Lee hasn't matured a bit since he broke out with "Cigarettes Will Kill You", and you can't just keep releasing albums filled with 14 year old kid poetry and get away with it. P.S. We know you broke up with Claire Danes. Get over it, you twat.

    He's never sounded more confident. [Mar 2005, p.134]

    [A] pleasant Sunday drive of an album. [18 Feb 2005, p.78]
  3. The songs, engaging as they are, sound cursory, as though Lee wrote them while riding the bus on his way to the studio, staring at his watch and an empty notebook.
