  • Summary: The Nirvana-esque four-piece returns with a follow-up to their 2001 major-label debut 'Come Clean.'
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 7
  2. Negative: 2 out of 7
  1. If it's lowest-common-demon heavy rawk you crave, Life awaits. [28 Nov 2003, p.125]
  2. Fails to whip up much excitement.
  3. They cook up an almighty storm, but as winds go, it's rather hollow. [Feb 2004, p.105]
  4. They skated by the first time through, due to a couple of fluke catchy songs, but they have no hooks or full-fledged songs this time around, and suffer dramatically because of it.
  5. 40
    Without the blue-eyed soul conviction of the original, it's enough to make even second-tier grunge has-beens like Seven Mary Three seem like innovators. [Dec 2003, p.145]
  6. 25
    These hammerheads still sound like the touring company of Grunge-a-Mania. [Jan 2004, p.100]
  7. Third-rate grunge retreads stuffed with overdriven guitars and generic rock-dude melancholia.

    You guys are stupid if you dont like this CD. It is the best music ever to come from anywhere. As for Kury Cobain, hes dead and he died a long time ago. Its time to move on. This CD rocks and it rocks hard! Expand

    Puddle Of Mudd is a great band. Although i think their 1st album come clean was a little bit better, this one definitely isnt bad. each song has its own catchy tune that leaves you wanting more. Each track has tons of intesity in it. Definitely pick it up. My favorite track is Nothing Left To Lose. Expand

    The only thing on display here is the blandest, most pathetic excuse for "hard rock" since, well, their first album. Or maybe Creed.
