Entertainment WeeklyTheir reliance on slight lyricism and meandering is painfully evident. [9 Nov 2001, p.110]
SpinTough guitar scrimmages, soaring supergroup moments that last a lifetime, boner-like intensity, roto-toms--Astronauts has it all. [March 2002, p.130]

BruceFeb 6, 2002All those "official" reviews are so off. Remmber, its same people who said Nirvana would never be popular- and we all know they are dubbed All those "official" reviews are so off. Remmber, its same people who said Nirvana would never be popular- and we all know they are dubbed "the new beatles". Flickersick does not have a lack of knowledge for creating new material, but it has the opposite! Their sound is so new and DIFFERENT than all the other crap out there.

I wish everyone would put them in context-a good band-not some annoying tv characters.… Expand
