    They mix wistful, hook-laden rock songs in the vein of Counting Crows, Five For Fighting, The Gin Blossoms, The Posies and Pete Yorn with the proto-emo sound of Sunny Day Real Estate. [Aug 2002, p.104]
  2. What the Kids lack in pep this time they make up for with honest, homey performances.
  3. Alternative Press

    Unfortunately, the visceral energy of their early days is lost in their newfound maturity. [Aug 2002, p.71]
