    One is a kinder, gentler record and I mean that in the worst possible way. [#14, p.98]

    The limp rhythm section and layered guitars expose the rote melodies, ridiculously dull lyrics and cruise-control tempo. [27 Jan 2005, p.60]
  3. One offers ten tracks of zipless triple-A folktronica -- bland, edgeless songs like "A Million Ways" that wouldn't even heat up the Ballroom D dancefloor on the final night of a Midwestern Regional Sales Conference.

You know, if I want to listen to pop-rock I'll play U2 or Coldplay, at least that's what those guys are good and known for. But what in the name of god is this? Where's that groovy house beat; the cool laid-back synthesizers; the awesome bass line?
