  • Summary: This Dallas band gained national attention by starring in (and winning) VH1's "Bands On The Run" competition/reality show. This major-label effort is a remixed version of their independently-released debut album, with two additional tracks.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 0 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. It is slightly schizophrenic, but the addition of two new tracks, together with Tom Lord-Alge's guiding hand shaving the excess off some of the songs, improves things over the original.
  2. Nothing here is gonna rock your world.
  3. Their reliance on slight lyricism and meandering is painfully evident. [9 Nov 2001, p.110]
  4. The band doesn't exactly have a lot of new ideas about what a rock song should sound like.
  5. It's all pretty silly stuff, but if nothing else, it manages to establish Flickerstick as a frontrunner for the Varsity Blues II soundtrack.
  6. 40
    Tough guitar scrimmages, soaring supergroup moments that last a lifetime, boner-like intensity, roto-toms--Astronauts has it all. [March 2002, p.130]
