    When I first heard it, it struck me as "post-milllenium Rock' the first thing that I'd heard in along time,it seemed, to elevate Rock into the modern age. Just Great production.I played it/lent it to a few different types of music fans, and they all really like it.It put a friend of mine into a kind of trance(he was a bit pissed at the time,but hey).It's still great only When I first heard it, it struck me as "post-milllenium Rock' the first thing that I'd heard in along time,it seemed, to elevate Rock into the modern age.

    11 irresistible sound collages that feature driving beats, amiable guitar acoustics, and a quadraphonic sense of aural play that encourages rampant headphone abuse. [15 Feb 2002, p.68]
  2. A far more streamlined affair, songs stretch out into dreamy extended jams that make bossa nova rhythms, sizzling electronics and screeching metal guitars seem like perfectly acceptable bedfellows.
  3. While Point may be less viscerally invasive than any of its recorded counterparts, it remains a beautifully orchestrated exercise in modern pop construction.
