  1. A laser-sharp collection of songs written with two things in mind: rocking hard and having fun. [12/2000, p.110]
  2. [The Presidents] still make catchy, punky pop tunes, but dammit if they don't sound better than they ever did. Maybe it's because the album stands in direct contrast with the teen pop and rap-rock that dominate the mainstream rock audience, or maybe it's because their jokes are now clever and silly, the production is varied, the songs are breezy, melodic, and catchy. Or maybe it's just because in this stripped-back production, the band never sounds self-conscious.
  3. Some of the strangest lyrical fodder ever to inhabit radio-ready fare.
  4. Fun, thoughtful, and dynamic-
  5. 60
    A record of both disappointments and welcome surprises.

    I can't belive that they actually came back! It is amazing. I would like to encourage them to make another one.

    As silly, catchy, yet rocking as ever, the Presidents perhaps last effort is a fulfilling and stylish one that will surely make old fans happy.
