  1. [A] measured and thoughtful set of intelligent pop tunes. [Oct 2003, p.114]
  2. 75
    The self-deprecation still rings hollow, but the hooks never do. [Jul 2003, p.110]
  3. Plays like the musical equivalent of junk food. [6 Jun 2003, p.78]
  4. At least they sound like they're still having a good time.
  5. 60
    McGrath sounds both sexier and more gentle, sensitive and more irresponsible. [#17, p.143]
  6. There just is a real feel of lightweights here--be it in the band's often balls-less bottom end (a real problem with so many rock bands these days) or just in the overall music itself.
  7. These bawdy Peter Pans of rock are more appealing when they summon their innate raunchy power, instead of coming off like a 2003 version of the Beach Boys with the sand washed off.
  8. Extremely infectious, thick with irony and inexplicably goofy.
