  1. These days music fans will be hard-pressed to find an album so satisfying.
  2. A high-voltage treat. [22/29 Aug 2003, p.133]
  3. They now have more in common with Jane's Addiction and the Red Hot Chili Peppers than they do their former mentors Papa Roach.

    The album feels unfocused, and this time, Alien Ant Farm don't have a novelty hit up their sleeve. [Sep 2003, p.111]
  5. Blending careful harmonies with insidious melodies and woeful lyrics with clever vocals, AAF stick a couple of Hispanic influences and some string quartets in as well.
  6. Sadly, AAF don't seem to have come away from their near-death experience with any sense of their own limitations or their own transience. Instead the band simply exists within these limitations.
  7. Sounds like a teenage Faith No More at their first practice. [Sep 2003, p.116]

    This CD is great. where some songs had unbelievable choruses (1000 Days, Drifting Apart, These Days), others offered memorable beats that This CD is great. where some songs had unbelievable choruses (1000 Days, Drifting Apart, These Days), others offered memorable beats that were carried through entire songs (Glow, Never Meant, Tia Lupe), and others had crazy-cool background music to accompany Mitchell's airtight singing (Sarah Wynn, Goodbye, Rubber Mallet, SS Recognize). And then, as a testament to all that has happened to the band, they finish off with the powerful "Hope." Not only does this CD give ANThology a run for its money, but it sets the bar for just about every alt metal band out there. Expand

    I love this CD! All the tracks are different, yet very good. I'm so happy that they remade "S.S. Recognize', that song is great. I love this CD! All the tracks are different, yet very good.
