    Critics are too critical of Everclear, the album is great for all Everclear fans and much better than so much of the trash being churned out by the music industry today Art Alexakis rules!!!

    It Rocks. Everyone who says it sucks is probably stuck in the 'punk' and rap cult.

    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. Expand

    I think this band deserves a lot more credit than people are willing to give them. perhaps it is the strangeness of the whole set-up: often sad lyrics set to 'happy' music; post-40s punk rocker frontman etc. sure, it is quite obvious that the band is using their own particular formula, but nevertheless they are slowly maturing while still retaining that energetic bounce in their I think this band deserves a lot more credit than people are willing to give them. perhaps it is the strangeness of the whole set-up: often sad lyrics set to 'happy' music; post-40s punk rocker frontman etc. sure, it is quite obvious that the band is using their own particular formula, but nevertheless they are slowly maturing while still retaining that energetic bounce in their music. and there are enough curveballs to keep things intersting (eg 'science fiction', 'how to make friends...'). and then there is 'new york times' which is just a great song! there is no filler on this album. just good rock songs you can relate to.

    the best cd ec has put out. i was a huge fan of good time for a bad attitude also. mtv has taken over music and made it all rap ... not just musically(if you can call it music) but its more about style and "bling". everclear is no longer mainstream because mainstream is no longer music. its sex, drugs, and having pimped out cars. everclear represents rock n roll. best cd ever, from the the best cd ec has put out. i was a huge fan of good time for a bad attitude also. mtv has taken over music and made it all rap ... not just musically(if you can call it music) but its more about style and "bling". everclear is no longer mainstream because mainstream is no longer music. its sex, drugs, and having pimped out cars. everclear represents rock n roll. best cd ever, from the best band ever. radio sucks Expand

    Musically, Everclear sound almost exactly the same as when they signed with Capitol in 1995: punk, profoundly polished. But the details Alexakis sprinkles into the mix keep things interesting. [Apr 2003, p.102]
  2. If it's an album that also argues that the band is working from formula, it's one they'd be wise to patent.
  3. Consolidates the strengths and weaknesses of the American Movie one disc.
