The debut by this quintet was aptly helmed by Kevin Cadogan of Third Eye Blind, a band who exerted a huge influence on guitarist Thomas Scriven when he first encountered them live, as a young teenager. Having also all grown up under the spell of Green Day, it's not surprising that the band mixes impassioned yet controlled vocals with monumental guitar and drum sounds for irresistible hooks. Big and chest-thumpingly loud, it's also crystal clear, making for a warmth in the towering scale of it all. They also vary the proceedings with the relative gentility of "She Takes you" and the flat-out balladry of "Hopeless." In short, this is no grab bag of songs, but a perfectly honed, full album experience. - David Greenberger

"I wanted to like this band and album...we live in the same town. However, I found the album to be very generic. The vocals were very uninspired and strained. With all the comparisons to Third Eye Blind (which is very misguided, I might add) I'd rather listen to Third Eye Blind's first album than this.
With every new band sounding like this, it's going to be hard for bands of this style to stand out. These guys are just another generic face in the crowd."
