Striking a winning balance between buffoonery and street credibility, the soul-pop hipsters wax clever on topics from social to sexual. -- USA Today

However, this album is something else completely. Upon listening, I realized that this is truly an anomalous band. On the one hand, they do tend to put forth a certain image of the cool, hip, new yorker who digs on the street life and says "screw the man", perfect for that middle america crowd. On the other hand, these men are incredibly talented musicians. It took me a while to accept that they had written, arranged, and recorded everything on the album themselves (save for the psuedo-sampling of Tom Petty and Marshall Tucker Band on "Big Night Out", and the collaboration with B.B. King on Mini Bar Blues"). The arrangements on this album are the most striking. The are incredibly atmospheric, shifting from barroom sound to arena to street sound seamlessly within particular songs.
In short, ten years have gone by and I have listened to A LOT of music of all different styles and eras, but I have yet to grow tired of this album, find it contrived or derivative, or think of it as dated. Do yourself a favor and pick this album up. You will be thoroughly taken by the sound and sophistication of these musicians.
