  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. Certainly there are some weak tracks... but Long Long Way To Go and Unbelievable are expertly crafted pop-rock tunes. [Aug 2002, p.122]
  4. A bunch of even-handed adult-pop that is melodic without being tuneful, or memorable for that matter.
  5. 40
    X is hindered by a glut of ballads and plodders. [#9, p.144]
  6. 30
    There's artistic maturation, and there's just plain old selling out. This, friends, is a prime example of the latter.
  7. The five Brits waste their major talents on midtempo songs like "Everyday" and "Four Letter Word."
