  1. An impeccable album that makes good on the promise he's shown in the past. [May 2004, p.102]
  2. 80
    It’s Kweller’s lyrics and voice that do it though; joy and melancholy combined to deliver pop as uplifting as Weezer and rock that’s as unsubtle as Kings of Leon, with anti-folk and Merseybeat along for what is a thrill-filled ride.
  3. 70
    Kweller's skeletal songs rely mostly on his acoustic guitar, garage-y riffs and swinging, Beatlesque piano. [Apr 2004, p.130]
  4. This is pleasant, bouncy pop, perfect for the carefree days of summer.
  5. On My Way lacks the spastic spontaneity of Sha Sha, and falls short in the lyrical department.
  6. On My Way promises to be voted "Most likely to get lost in your collection and never thought about again."
