  1. Consolidates the strengths and weaknesses of the American Movie one disc.

    Mostly, though, this is vintage mid-'90s Everclear. [#15, p.122]
  3. Attempts to obscure the paucity of decent songs with endless guitar wittering. [Apr 2003, p.102]
  4. Despite the fact that nobody bought their lackluster last two albums, Art Alexakis and his two lackeys are back with the even more banal and unnecessarily loud Slow Motion Daydream.

    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 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 »
