    The album's undisputed highlights are "Hit Somebody! (The Hockey Song)" and "Genius." [Album of the Month, July 2002, p.100]
  4. An eclectic, catchy opus that equals and occasionally surpasses his last really great release, Sentimental Hygiene.
  5. It rocks harder (and louder) without stinting on the musicianly colors that have always redeemed his sessionman whomp.
