  1. They've just made the best rock album since Andrew WK's 'I Get Wet'.
  2. X may be their niftiest since Adrenalize.
  3. A bunch of even-handed adult-pop that is melodic without being tuneful, or memorable for that matter.
  4. The five Brits waste their major talents on midtempo songs like "Everyday" and "Four Letter Word."
  5. 30
    There's artistic maturation, and there's just plain old selling out. This, friends, is a prime example of the latter.
  6. Certainly there are some weak tracks... but Long Long Way To Go and Unbelievable are expertly crafted pop-rock tunes. [Aug 2002, p.122]
  7. There just isn't enough memorable music here.
  8. 40
    X is hindered by a glut of ballads and plodders. [#9, p.144]
