    Smash Mouth keep getting better and better. [7 Dec 2001, p.104]

    More eclectic than its predecessors, this self-titled CD finds the group spiking its feel-good melodies and crunchy guitar pop with interesting stylistic detours, and even smatterings of emotional depth.
  3. With so much soundtrack and jingle work to be done, who can really blame these marketing all-stars for playing to their past successes?
  4. As always, Smash Mouth is all but impossible to hate, offsetting its bald-faced mercenary intentions with a refreshing lack of pretension.

    Even though there's nothing new, the album offers enough in the way of big-beat guitar and sing-along choruses to keep Smash Mouth on the charts for another two years. [#4, p.123]

    Cool people probably think this sort of utilitarian grab bag dumbs down Beck-like eclecticism. But maybe it didn't take such a genius to come up with it in the first place. [Jan 2001, p.109]

    This album is the true definition of music, people say that music has died and that is because there are no artists that have the god-likeThis album is the true definition of music, people say that music has died and that is because there are no artists that have the god-like vocals of the Steve Harwell. Every track is an unforgettable hit and when you listen to this excellent display of true music, you will become a believer, just like I did, when I saw her face. With this divine display of vocals you will become enraptured by the angelic lyrics that you will encounter when you listen to this album. In fact, this album is so good it cannot be called an al"bum", but rather it should be called and al"very wealthy upper class white man who runs a very successful steel manufacturing business."

But I have quite simply concluded that this masterpiece of music and poetry is the pinnacle of modern civilisation and culture. Surely, there can be nothing more incredible than this song's rise to popularity via normie memes and reddit nerds. Communism will prevail. Peace. Expand
