    This is just another album that proves that there are many alternative bands that try to hard to imitate the hit-makers and fail big-time. "Eureka" has it's slight upsides, but it is very unappealing to any music fan, from any genre.

  1. You have to remember: optimism doesn't always have to be cliche, and while the band struggles lyrically ("Stars and Stripes" has Robert Schwartzman trying to imitate Joni Mitchell or the Byrds), they still know their strengths.
  2. Eureka finds the guys stuck between pining for the golden days and looking toward the future, resulting in a track list that's sometimes tuneful and often haphazard.
  3. Robert Schwartzman's best asset is his gift for breezy melodies, but Eureka's lyrics sag.
