    This is their worst album in nearly 12 years. It's crafted okay but there's none of the energy which they exert abundantly on some of their previous albums. "I Need Direction" is both the album's best song and the band's figurative cry for help. Maybe a change of producer would help next time.

    The 'club's most satisfying collection since 1990's A Catholic Education. [25 Jan 2002, p.107]
  2. Few bands epitomise so well the virtues of not fixing that which isn't broken.
  3. It’s by no means a landmark, and it’s not close to their best; it’s just well-done.
