  1. There isn't a dud among this project's 11 tracks, each of which sounds custom-made for radio.
  2. Sugar Ray actually sound like a band -- a quality missing from most of their earlier work.
  3. As radio-friendly as Radiohead are not. [Sep 2001, p.120]
  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.

    They're all pretty good, actually, especially "When It's Over"... [Aug 2001, p.129]
  6. 60
    Keeping things light is both the band's strongest asset and its greatest weakness.
  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.

    My favourite of the Sugar Ray albums, it's a smooth, polished sound, full of drum and bass, mixed with the original Sugar Ray energy.
