    They sound like they can't be bothered. [Oct 2004, p.120]
  2. Sadly this isn’t the same 213 who dropped the legendary demo and this isn’t the 213 album people have been waiting for.

    The lyrics tend towards the banal and, at times, there is a palpable sense of awkwardness. [Dec 2004, p.134]
