  2. Negative: 0 out of 12
  1. [He's] invented a loud and severely impassioned polished rock sound.
  2. A crisp, clean, and undeniably beautiful work.
  3. This new voice from Omaha has asserted himself as sophisticated and smart.
  4. Statistics come on like a more abstract, art-damaged version of the Cure.
  5. Leave Your Name is 11 tracks and only 28 minutes long, about half of which feels like noodling.
  6. Statistics... come off like an emo version of Coldplay.
  7. [Dalley] repeatedly dilutes Leave Your Name with empty atmospheric exercises in barely-there vocals and shimmery keys. [Feb 2004, p.80]

    Fantastic music, but some of the worst lyrics to date. Almost makes you uncomfortable.
