    It's ok when you hear it the 1st time. But Scott's voice is annoying and there is not much really ground-breaking on it. It's a pity.

    A perpetual guilty pleasure. [Jun 2004, p.107]
  2. Even at its sharpest, Contraband feels secondhand, and much of it is also hobbled by a disconnect between singer and band. [4 June 2004, p.79]

    This is a troubling record. There are some stellar moments, but it's mostly just troubling. [Jul 2004, p.105]
