  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 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
