  1. Sure, it's better than their last album--there are hooks, clever jokes and tiny sparks throughout-- but the trouble is that those sparks only illuminate the fact that 20 years is a ridiculous amount of time to make anyone wait for what is little more than an overwrought hunk of shiny plastic. [Summer 2010, p.83]
  2. While continuing to crusade against de-evolution, these new wave pioneers are stuck in stasis.
  3. It's hooks are wilted, and its lyrics run over with cliches and canned memes from news and television.
