  1. VanGaalen's a skilled musician, and compositionally the pieces are well-constructed, but there's nothing on the record that truly blows you away.
  2. There's not much to any given song on the album to distinguish it from its obvious sub-genre counterparts.
  3. His music could be a good deal better than it is.
