Alternative PressThe best Def Leppard album "Mutt" Lange never wrote. [Feb 2006, p.126]
BlenderBaker... somehow makes them sound more outrageous--and more convincing. [Dec 2005, p.148]
Los Angeles TimesThe challenge in coming back for Round 2 was to make it more than a one-note joke, but the Darkness remains in its Spinal Tap mode for most of "One Way Ticket." [6 Dec 2005]
So the mission statement of this CD is clear; this is a product made by the emotionally and culturally sterile for people who either have no conception of love, depression, or any other emotional state outside of pop culture cliché, or those so desperate for entertainment that they would deceive themselves into thinking the feckless chicanery of this masturbatory ensemble resembles soulful expression in any way.

JoeSDec 6, 2005a very good album that's overproduced in places but still has some great songs.
AnonAmoseOct 25, 2006Not bad at all. It's entertaining if you take the album for what it is supposed to be.
MarkLDec 6, 2005This is a decent album and arguably an improvement on Permission to Land. They're a band with real talent and the album kicks off well This is a decent album and arguably an improvement on Permission to Land. They're a band with real talent and the album kicks off well with two excellent tracks. But as the album goes on it doesn't really go anywhere. It's also shorter than it should be, this could do with another 5+ minute track on the end. Hopefully they'll do better with album #3.… Expand
SteveDec 6, 2005Very poor uninnovative music from a bunch of talentless egomaniacs. They should stop what they're doing for good. Put us all out of our misery.
