    The lesser known shoo-ins often struggle. [Sep 2003, p.104]
  2. In the midst of all this Neptunian mastery, there are two absolutely unlistenable "rock" songs that no fan of modern productionist fervor could possibly stand listening to.
  3. An uneven album with moments of thunderous fun and more than a few flatlined missteps.
