  1. It makes for a cool sound that might be too inoffensive at times but which grabs all the right places most of the time.
  2. Almost everything about 'Kicking The National Habit' is righteously unfashionable.
  3. There’s one problem, and it’s not insignificant: with the best three songs at positions 1-2-3, there’s only one place to go.
  4. Tracks such as "Boner" and "Peanut Dreams," stripped of any excitement, are nothing more than highly polished and easily forgettable songs to ignore at a swanky upstairs club.
