  1. These days music fans will be hard-pressed to find an album so satisfying.
  2. Entertainment Weekly
    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.
  4. When they crank out catchy ditties on harmony-heavy cuts like "Drifting Apart," AAF sound like a bunch of old pros--old pros who are still having a blast.
  5. Q Magazine
    Their brand of ant music has matured and expanded noticeably since ANThology. [Sep 2003, p.98]
  6. Spin
    The album feels unfocused, and this time, Alien Ant Farm don't have a novelty hit up their sleeve. [Sep 2003, p.111]
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Blender
    Alien Ant Farm's songs may be catchy, but their wishy-washy personality makes it hard to care. [Sep 2003, p.118]
  10. Alternative Press
    Sounds like a teenage Faith No More at their first practice. [Sep 2003, p.116]
