  1. There's enough diversity in this album that something is bound to appeal to just about any fan of rock.
  2. A solid, expertly realized slice of alternative rock: smart, furious and concise; devoid of any hip-hop influences or electronica underpinnings; informed by punk but with an adolescent kind of lust for heavy-metal riffs.
  3. Perfect major-label American alt-rock--slick, smart and serious enough without being somber to reach out to even the least emotionally confused people without scaring off the moody ones. [May 2002, p.94]
  4. While there is much to recommend this disc, Moth would be wise to develop a more distinctive voice.
  5. There are moments when you wish for just a tiny bit of dirt, or just a little bit of edge.
  6. 60
    This is Fountains of Wayne or the Church with real power in their power pop. [Apr/May 2002, p.116]
  7. They're fresh and clean, delivering spiky cut riffs while lyrics are unpretentious about love and heartbreak.
