Rolling Stone (9/19/02, pp.97-8) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A nervier, edgier, thoroughly surprising album....the band has figured out how to let loose and rock out...[it's] first-rate guitar rock with some real emotional protein on its bones."

Spin (1/03, p.72) - Ranked #26 on Spin's list of 2002's "Albums of the Year" - "...Harder and darker than 2000's sweetly naive PARACHUTES....gorgeous arena pop."
