    Strangely enough, Utah Saints have never sounded better... [Sep 2001, p.163]

    The only caveat toward Two? The Saints still rock, but they don't rave quite as hard.

    When US aren't dipping into other musical genres to "keep it fresh," the classic blippy sound shines through on "Love Song" and "Punk Club." [Aug 2001, p.82]

    The Saints' talent seems lost in the mix as they fall victim to their signature technique and sound. [Sep 2001, p.154]
