  1. The problem isn’t the music, which is lively and varied, but the disconnect between the artistic intent and the artistic output.

    Mudhoney these days, for all their pioneer status, mostly just sound like a regular, decent rock band. [Apr 2006, p.105]

    Abrasive, apocalyptic rock. [Apr/May 2006, p.105]
  4. Under A Billion Suns is, by a wide margin, the tightest Mudhoney has ever sounded on record. It's all the more unfortunate, then, that the album's lyrics bait the comparison to... Green Day.
  5. [The songs] may be executed with prowess, but their bandied crassness isn't just a tried-and-true style, it's a tiresome cliché.

    Most... is either shapeless mush or verging on self-parody. [Apr 2006, p.116]
