I think I got the CLOUDED picture

"It seems like I'm always the person writing the first three-star review for an album. But anyway, I was surprised to come across this Smash Mouth album from last year, because I didn't even know it existed. I listened to the album, and it turned out to be one of those albums that you start out listening to and then eventually get caught up doing something else.
I'm not necessarily saying Get the Picture is bad, but it's just not that interesting. For one thing, there definitely aren't any standout songs to the likes of "All Star", "Then the Morning Comes", "Walkin' On the Sun", or even "Can't Get Enough of You Baby". And another problem is that a lot of the songs on here sound too much alike, almost as if the only difference between the songs is the lyrics. This is especially evidenced by the unnecessary remix of the Neil Diamond-penned "You Are My Number One", which doesn't sound any different from the original version.
There are also a couple of lyrical missteps to be found ("Hot" is the opposite of that). This album is really for diehard Smash Mouth fans only, so if you're not one, you might want to pass this one by.
The Good Old Days

"Smashmouth was once my all time favorite band. Then around a couple years ago I was introduced to a certain band called Led Zeppelin by my dad, and I quickly became more interested in classic rock, and eventually heavy metal and alternative rock, and pretty much stopped listening to Smashmouth all together. Recently I was going through a bunch of my old CD's (Good Charlotte, Nickeback, Sugar Ray, UGH) and I managed to dig up this album. And I decided "you know what, maybe I'll keep this". So I listend to it.
Yes, although I didn't realize this until recently, the music is kinda mediocre, the songwriting is on the level with something any 8 year old could write about summer and stuff, yet, the album just makes you feel really good, it's almost like the fact that the songwriting is mediocre doesn't mean anything, now for me, this album is particuarly special...
When I bought this album, I was at the all time height of my happiness. I was 12, or maybe I was 11, doesn't matter, I was at that age were everything is set in stone and seems right before everything starts to got down during your teen years. That summer I went to Orlando, Florida for the first time ever and stayed in a buetiful hotel called the Gaylord Palms (yes, the name is weird), everything there was sunny and Florida-ish, just like the whole trip was. I had bought the album like a week earlier, and I absolutly loved it at the time, so naturally I bought my walkman with me to Florida, and whenever I got a minute to myself I listend to it, the music would fit in with my enviornment perfectly, so sunny, so innocent...
Now that I am at the point where I have gone as far as begging to listen to old school Death Metal, Smash Mouth's 'Get the Picture' album provides an alternative to the mostly darker music I prefer to listen to these days. They just bring back good memories. That's all I have to say, it may be mediocre, but it's good enough for me, and I'm glad I rediscovered this band and this album."
