    They don't stray from what they know and they don't tarry from their blueprint. It's just that they don't know much and their blueprint was done in crayon. [#5, p.92]
  2. The band has never seemed so stale. [14 Mar 2003, p.66]

    Slow Motion Daydream is a real treat for Everclear fans since it's just a continuation of the Everclear sound, even if that sound is contrived and average.
  4. Mostly consists of generic rock, the sparkling production wiping clean any trace of roughness or originality in the group’s sound.

    Not their best, but still awesome. They're still my favorite group, five years running now. :D

    Don't be put off; this is the best album Everclear has produced since So Much for the Afterglow. Indeed, where it even surpasses the earlier album is in the consistency of the output; there are no filler tracks on Slow Motion daydream, and the 12 tracks display the whole range of Everclear's music wonderfully. Sure the album doesn't rock as hard as their first few, but the songwriting makes up for this easily. Art has matured as a genuine songwriter, and it has allowed Everclear to survive when many of their contemporaries have fallen by the wayside. Full Review »
