    This stinking piece pile of dog poo has the distinction of being the only CD, or tape, or l.p that I have ever returned to the shop. Don't believe the hype.

    Hey Ryan, what connection do you have with Dan Smith just wondering. I don't see how these guys are a ripoff, but I would much rather listen to Danielson Fam.

    Are you kidding? This is entertainment? Am I the only one who agrees with Pete B? The Spree is Barnie for adults... actually - thats an insult to Barnie

    This band makes a mockery of what they pretend to represent. Tim Delaughter needs to watch his ego before the entire world finds out what a joke him and his band is. He has treated many people badly on the rise to his fame. There is no sunshine in his parade.

    There's the humanist warmth and simple joy that you hear in The Beach Boys or The Flaming Lips at their best. [Nov 2002, p.114]

    Their pop peaks sound like an ecstatic communion of Mercury Rev, ELO and the cast of Hair. [Oct 2002, p.110]
