  1. There are worse things you could spend you money on, but buy one of BMG's DVD's if you want to entertained by them; pass on this forgettable CD.
  2. While a few of the songs -- like BMG's team-up with Esthero for a cover of "White Rabbit" -- may generate momentary interest, they all sound a little too much like commercial radio fodder, their quirks depressingly predictable.

    Pretentious, cold, repetitive, exaggerated without any intelligent humor. A friend raved about it, I think it is boring. Bang bang bang pvc over and out. Full Review »

    Very diverse. A very high level of harmonic flow, something you can't capture Live.

    I bought this album two days ago, and have listened to it about 20 times since. It's a wonderful album, and should satisfy fans of BMG's first album, Audio, while bringing in a new audience. I've read several reviews on The Complex, and disagree with a few of them - One thing this album is not is predictable. One thing that it is is genius. Full Review »
