2 stars The band's self titled debut album is one of the best of its kind, a mixture of pop, grunge, progressive/psychedelic and mainstream rock with many great songs. Now with '2' we got something very different. Its OK if a band's sound is changing through each and every new release but with this album that change is shocking - in a negative way!

This album is almost a pure mainstream rock release: most of the songs sounds good - some of them would even too bad for an average mainstream album. No progressive elements - the album falls simply into the category of alternative rock. It reminds me to the great alter rock album 'Grave Dancers Union' by Soul Asylum - the problem is that 'GDU' is a much more dynamic and diverse music than '2'...

The songs Empty, Runaway and War Is... are the weekest parts and Allison is the only song what slightly brings back the feeling of the fine first release.

So lovers of the first album must avoid this one - the peculiar feeling is gone and only boredom what the guys offering to us this time. In an alter rock site this album would deserve 3,5 stars but no more than 2 in PA.
