  • Summary: The Memphis-based band continues to move away from their early rap-metal sound, instead adding Southern rock into the mix on this fourth album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. [Scott's] aching redemption songs and seething revenge tirades give the album a sharp contemporary edge. [10 Sep 2004, p.165]
  2. All of this vitriol, however, tears away at the more palatable hooks found in past Saliva hits, which isn't necessarily a good thing.
  3. The Memphis five-piece sometimes lacks a definitive sound... Yet the band excels at its straightforward, meat-and-potatoes sound.
  4. Panders to unimaginative industry and genre posturing.

    This album would be better without Scott screaming about absolute nonsense. [Sep 2004, p.119]
  6. 40
    Here, [Saliva] temper their mid-tempo crunch with '80s-metal guitar heroics and Southern-rock fundamentalism. [Sep 2004, p.141]
