  1. A rousing, driving smack in the face of all things pop, punk, and hard rock.
  2. It's another conventional rock record, thrashing guitar hooks and throbbing bass lines are in place, but frontman Max Collins has lyrically improved.
  3. If you fish around a bit, you'll find several good ideas here, some of which may have worked better in different hands.
  4. It's an almost perfectly consistent follow-up to the band's successful 1998 debut - perhaps a tad too consistent.
  5. The band's music and lyrics often still sound labored

    Horrorscope is just like its predecessor, only more so: Better, smarter, faster, and angstier than Eve 6, it's an utterly delightful pop-punk kerfluffle.
  7. 70
    The collection of songs on Horrorscope is a rollicking batch of hooky tunes
  8. Horrorscope is glossy, artless, proficient, and dull enough to be easily tuned out...
  9. Sometimes reminiscent of classic English prog-rockers the Moody Blues and the correlating Electric Light Orchestra (as in "Rescue" and "Girl Eyes"), Eve 6 mostly sounds like a safer version of their numeric brethren Third Eye Blind, Blink 182 and even matchbox twenty
  10. 20
    But it's not Eve 6's purely commercial aspirations that makes them so horrid...

    Not my favorite album by Eve 6, but still a very commendable effort with a couple of duds but mostly with fine songs that have great repeatable quality. Full Review »
