  1. A bunch of even-handed adult-pop that is melodic without being tuneful, or memorable for that matter.
  2. The five Brits waste their major talents on midtempo songs like "Everyday" and "Four Letter Word."

    X is hindered by a glut of ballads and plodders. [#9, p.144]
  4. 30
    There's artistic maturation, and there's just plain old selling out. This, friends, is a prime example of the latter.
  5. There just isn't enough memorable music here.
  6. They've just made the best rock album since Andrew WK's 'I Get Wet'.
  7. Certainly there are some weak tracks... but Long Long Way To Go and Unbelievable are expertly crafted pop-rock tunes. [Aug 2002, p.122]
  8. X may be their niftiest since Adrenalize.
