    Songs like 100 years, disneyland, and the devil in the well are all great songs, but there are too many stupid or boring songs rounding them out. like "one more for love"

  1. The Battle for Everything is an occasionally interesting record, but the sheer pretension of Ondrasik's lyrics coupled with his penchant for self-seriousness tend to suck much of the fun out of what could have been an enjoyably middle-of-the-road adult alternative album.
  2. Different from the touching--but too sleepy--"America Town," "Battle" impressively tackles new territory.

    Weighed down by artificially inflated anthems, garbled lyrics about the apocalypse, and coy attempts at surrealism. [6 Feb 2004, p.140]
