    Each song on The Spine is characteristically intelligent, observant, and poppy as all hell. [#11, p.94]

    Nothing on The Spine drills into your cerebral cortex and demands to be whistled on public transport like earlier hits, but the tunes are agreeable enough. [Aug 2004, p.99]
  3. Every now and again they hit on a promising musical idea, then ruin it.
