    Hurries from one strangely unsatisfying sparkle to the next. [5 Jun 2005]
  3. You'll keep looking for songs with more depth than "Ba Bump," only to find that they're basically all at that level.
  4. So safe and sanitised it makes The Fugees sound like NWA.
  5. Spin

    The Peas give fun a bad name. [Jul 2005, p.104]
  6. There's nary an original note on the entire album.
  7. They are to hip-hop what No Doubt was to ska.
