  1. The Gin Blossoms continue to concoct melodic hooks framed by a mix of jangly alternative pop-rock on the band's newest album, No Chocolate Cake.
  2. No Chocolate Cake snatches the baton from Major Lodge Victory, which pretended a decade-long hiatus didn't happen, but this new record is better and stronger (if neither harder nor faster).
  3. None of these tunes can compete with the band's singles, of course, but that's not the point, since No Chocolate Cake sets its sights on maintaining the band's audience rather than reclaiming a spot in the mainstream.
