Two Stars for Two Good Songs
Me | The Middle of Nowhere | 06/03/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"There are only two good songs on this album: Something to Someone and Everything's Cool. After hearing My Own Worst Enemy on the radio dozens of times I decided to give the band a try. The store I went to didn't have the CD with that song on it, but this one was only $5.88 so I bought it. What a dissapointment. You can tell the band didn't even put much effort into this album because there isn't even a booklet to go with it, there's just a paper with the tracklisting on it. I will admit that all the songs are catchy but they're also entirely shallow and generic. This CD was a big dissapointment."
Don Gilmore will ruin any band's momentum
Zen Station | The Graceful Swans of Never | 07/11/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Which you can hear on this album. You know those albums where just about every song is basically "just there"? This is one of them. I mean, I don't fail to see Lit's merit at all. In fact, it's one of my all-time favorite artists. However, producer Don Gilmore turned this album into a milquetoast nothing type thing. The lyrics are still just as clever as they've ever been and Jeremy Popoff has some good riffage. What's lacking in this is songs with real mmmph. I can't get over how hollow the production is and there's only a handful of songs worth listening to. Those songs aren't even great. I like "The Last Time Again", which is fine; "Happy in the Meantime" shows they can make a good ballad and "Slip" is the only remotely interesting thing. "Over My Head" is decent and has backing vocals from Aersomith's Steven Tyler.

This album is so lackluster and it's a shame to admit. At one point, Lit was my favorite band; I basically liked everything they did. Here, they sound milquetoast and mainly it's because the producer made it sound even more bland this time around. He also produces for Linkin Park, by the way.

Seriously, you only need this if you want everything done by Lit. Buy Lit, A Place in the Sun, and Tripping the Light Fantastic. Those are actually really good albums."

"this cd is a major letdown especially in contrast to their excellent album, a place in the sun. the songs on atomic are boring and redundant and simply do not display the talent that they showed on their previous effort. it may grow on me will more listening, but i dont foresee that. its a good thing i only paid $5.88 for it!"
