  1. There isn't a dud among this project's 11 tracks, each of which sounds custom-made for radio.
  2. As radio-friendly as Radiohead are not. [Sep 2001, p.120]
  3. Sugar Ray actually sound like a band -- a quality missing from most of their earlier work.
  4. And while it might be difficult to swallow yet another dose of hip-hop-lite and poor-me acoustic pop songs from chick-magnet lead singer Mark McGrath and gang, these Southern California boys make the everyman breeziness work for them.
  5. 60
    Keeping things light is both the band's strongest asset and its greatest weakness.
  6. 60
    They're all pretty good, actually, especially "When It's Over"... [Aug 2001, p.129]
  7. In listening to Sugar Ray, it's easy to forget this band began as heavy guitar funketeers--its sound today is tame by comparison.
