The scattershot recording technique seems erratic for a quartet of chums who've spent upwards of fifteen years gelling together, and most of the rock tracks like "Hella Good" and "Platinum Blonde Life" suffer from a mix of overproduction and lack of urgency; missing is the California garage band vibe that was the trademark of their earlier, more energetic material.

JamesFAug 27, 2005I rather liked it. I can't really compare it with the older stuff because it's just a different direction. I definitely enjoyed it I rather liked it.

The best moment of the record. Sweet 80s sugar!… Expand
