  • Summary: The veteran pop-punk outfit led by John Feldmann returns with a fifth studio disc.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. A pair of seemingly dated numbers aside, Disconnection Notice makes for a solid and surprisingly cohesive listen. [Mar 2005, p.118]
  2. The band's lyrics make Smash Mouth look like Sartre, and its anthemic choruses never quite jell into actual good songs. [18 Feb 2005, p.78]
  3. Shows the SoCal outfit mining the same bright pop-rock riffs that are being done better by the younger kids today.
  4. Long on rote melodies and slickly produced SoCal stomp.
  5. Odd sonic and thematic tonal choices plague the album.

    One of the best Goldfinger CDs I have heard yet. Adds a nice mix of their more mature sound and vegan views but also goes back to their days of silly songs with stalker. Expand

    A much more mature sound compared to there other stuff but also returning to their ska routes.
