  1. Vol. Two will please Everclear's long-term fans with a return to their harder roots.
  2. 60
    Rockers and ballads are both delivered with pure '80s polish and shine. It doesn't make for as interesting a listen as the folk and funk of this year's Vol. 1, but that's not the point. If that was the thinking man's Everclear, this is the purely visceral edition. At the very least an exhilarating, fist-pumping ride, Vol. 2 is proof that a little energy can go a long way.
  3. While there are blips in all areas of life - the possible existence of Bigfoot, the rich and strange wildlife of Madagascar - few things cast more suspicion upon the whole survival-of-fittest concept than the continuing career of Everclear.

My hopes for a Everclear "return to form" were quickly diminished in this heap of turd. Full Review »

    This CD is about on the same level as Vol. 1, but it includes my favourite Everclear track.
