  1. The group has effectively reinvented/refound itself as a crack power-pop band.
  2. A rather complacent set of radio-ready lite alt-rock.

Sadly, this was their last album for adults (they have released 2 family albums since then). But what an excellent effort to go out on. It's 12 years later and this album is still on constant rotation in my catalog. The sincerity, charm, and pure genius of "Underneath" easily stands the test of time. Full Review »

    Amazing album from one of the most underrated, unappreciated bands of our generation. Every song is incredible!

I rediscovered this band when I saw their self titled CD in the public library. I already had the CD that "The Freshmen" was on and I wanted to hear how the band sounded from CD to CD. I was pleasantly surprised. When I found "Underneath" also in the same library, I borrowed it and I am enjoying it quite a bit too. While their tone has been diminishing, this is by no means any indication of the quality of their music... merely the aggressiveness of the music. This CD is their most toned down so far, but it is still a great CD. Full Review »
