    There's charm in its corniness. [Feb 2007, p.82]
  2. Much of City Beach is sort of bland and a little corny.
  3. Alternative Press
    40
    Too many songs rely on sappy love-song cliches, bland arrangements or saccharine lyrics. [Mar 2007, p.135]
  4. If I didn't know better, I'd swear Jill Cunniff had crawled under a rock and refused to listen to any music since her old band, Luscious Jackson, split in 99.
  5. Under The Radar
    40
    A mostly dull record of disco-lite. [#17, p.98]
  6. Even the better tracks fall a little flat.
