1. Too Fast For A U-Turn - An adequate delivery of Lit's expression of RCA's loss of grip. The song offers a vibe of 70's effects placed upon muted vocals and familiar guitar tone from Jeremy Popoff. The ever present "whooaohs" accompany AJ's vocals as they rip through a very evolved Lit peice. Not quite as catchy as, say, anything they've done - but this was a great selection for an opening track because it warns fans and listeners alike that the band has broadened their musical scope while maintaining the pop/rock fusion they have always held onto. ***
2. Looks Like They Were Right - If you have heard any song off of this album, this is the one you've heard. The opening riff has a vibe extremely similar to Queens of the Stone Age's "Know One Knows." Extremely catchy, yet still delivers a more raw sound as the rhythm bounces through distortion and mid-tempo breaks. I'm usually disappointed by singles, but the band went with a good one this time around. While it may be no "My Own Worst Enemy" to casual listeners, it adds a mainstream appeal to an otherwise fan-appreciated album. ****
3. Needle & Thread - An extremely Lit-esque song encorporates melodic guitar and vocals which break into a solo by The Matches' Jon Devoto. The chorus is nearly the most catchy offering on the entire album. This song does absolute justice to the Pop Rock genre.Read more ›
A very solid album !!!!
From the musical depths of Orange County, Lit's first album scored huge with college radio in 1997. Then, in 1999, their multi-platinum disc, "A Place In The Sun" put them in the forefront of rock mainstream. They had two monster hits with "My Own Worst Enemy" and "Miserable" (which had a memorable video featuring hottie Pamela Anderson). Things were going smoothly until the band released the little-known "Atomic," which hardly made a mark on the charts, mainly due to the lack of promotion from RCA. Lit parted ways with the label and began recording their fourth full-length, which has taken almost three years to arrive. It's the anxious moment Lit fans have been craving.
That leaves a lot to be desired then. When bands take forever and a half to follow-up an album, most times it's disappointing. But, fortunately for Lit, that should pass them by.
The album continues to stick by the sound Lit has cemented, and there's nothing extravagantly new here, but it displays a power Lit never has before. It sounds more heartfelt and edgier than "Atomic". It's almost like a greatest hits album, reaching into every album's track list and taking all the elements to combine them into one.Read more ›

This album by LIT is far from awesome. I find myself bored by about the fifth song. I however wouldn't discourage buying the album. It really depends on your taste in music. Read morePublished on March 10, 2007 by K. hysell
This is an amazing Cd. It is by far Lit's best yet. Almost every song is great, with the exception of Forever Begins Right Now and Lullaby. Read morePublished on October 26, 2004 by Bravesfan35
I've been a big fan of "lit" ever since "A place in the Sun". Their music is ultra-catchy and totally defines what "Power-pop" is. This is not their best work however. Read morePublished on October 9, 2004 by xTragedyxBrittanyx
