  1. Haunted Cities has more of a street-smarts vibe and is actually more listenable [than their debut].
  2. The whole package ends up having this strangely alluring glimmer. It's like discovering California Babylon after being lost in suburbia.

    More tuneful and less experimental than their debut. [Aug 2005, p.113]
  4. Think of them as a slightly above-average combo of the Clash, Fun Lovin' Criminals, and some snotty band from the burbs. [24 Jun 2005, p.164]
  5. Transplants make a splattery mess of modern music as often as they stumble over something new and exciting.
  6. 25
    While Transplants' self-titled debut caught the trio at that moment when the third-beer buzz kicks in... the new record seems to have picked up several pints and bong hits later, when shit starts to get grisly. [Aug 2005, p.96]

    Expected a bit more after their awesome self-titled debut. There's still some noteworthy songs like "Not Today" and "Apocalypse Now."
