  1. This is one of the breeziest, catchiest discs I've heard in a while.
  2. Lostprophets inhabit that old-fashioned place where the young are alright and must overcome the cynicism of the jaded oldster at all costs. [Feb 2004, p.104]
  3. Lostprophets have, against the odds, carved something genuinely fresh.
  4. 70
    Modern without being self-conscious, metal without being stupid. [Mar 2004, p.106]
  5. The sound of a band throwing itself relentlessly at the limitations of its genre.
  6. [Lostprophets] mine the acts of groups like Faith No More and Incubus to put a more palatable edge on the sluggish nu-metal genre.
  7. On the whole, Lostprophets seem a bit lost on this average at best offering.

    Masterpiece. A great opener sets you off on a journey of 13 absolute classics. The kind of album where every song is great and it is only aMasterpiece. A great opener sets you off on a journey of 13 absolute classics. The kind of album where every song is great and it is only a shame that they never managed to release more, from what I am calling, the best Lostprophets album to date. Songs like "A Million Miles" and "Burn Burn" make this album a true masterpiece. Expand

    I loved their last album, and listened to my import of it obsessively before it came out in the states - that was a great disc. This album is I loved their last album, and listened to my import of it obsessively before it came out in the states - that was a great disc. This album is catchy and easy to listen to, but it doesn't excite me like their last one did. Don't get me wrong, if you enjoy the lostprophets, and aren't looking for something overly creative - this is a great catchy album. But it doesn't have any hints of creativity or inspiration like their debut had. Expand
