Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Two years after using 14:59 to tweak folks who insisted they were destined for 15 minutes of fame, Mark McGrath and company have returned -- a little more grown up, a little mellower, but just as adroit at creating sweet melodies that stick in the head after just a single listen. This self-titled disc is a departure in a lot of ways. The party-boy persona that McGrath has flaunted for much of the band's career has been at least temporarily retired, and in its place is a guy who's longing to be loved, as evidenced by both the surprisingly gritty "Waiting" and the Philly soul homage "Ours." Fans of the edgier sound the band espoused on, say, Lemonade & Brownies will ...

Two years after using 14:59 to tweak folks who insisted they were destined for 15 minutes of fame, Mark McGrath and company have returned -- a little more grown up, a little mellower, but just as adroit at creating sweet melodies that stick in the head after just a single listen. This self-titled disc is a departure in a lot of ways. The party-boy persona that McGrath has flaunted for much of the band's career has been at least temporarily retired, and in its place is a guy who's longing to be loved, as evidenced by both the surprisingly gritty "Waiting" and the Philly soul homage "Ours." Fans of the edgier sound the band espoused on, say, Lemonade & Brownies will find the pickings somewhat slim, although "Under the Sun" does allow the band's inspired guitarist, Rodney Sheppard, to let loose. But those who've developed a sweet tooth for Sugar Ray's irresistible singles will no doubt revel in the lilting tones of mini-dramas like "Answer the Phone" and "Stay On" which features a cameo from 311's Nick Hexum. Light and airy, sure, but those summer breezes sure can make you feel fine.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
By their fourth album, Sugar Ray had developed a real ease to their music. Starting with "Fly," they no longer tried so hard to rock -- they no longer tried to ape the Red Hot Chili Peppers -- and began relaxing into a sun-kissed, laid-back groove, the kind of music where even the fast numbers powered by distorted guitars don't necessarily sound heavy. This came to the forefront on 14:59, but it blossoms on that album's follow-up, Sugar Ray. Where 14:59 was a little self-conscious and jokey culminating in a cover of Steve Miller's "Abracadabra", Sugar Ray feels easy and natural, so it's easy to smile at the reference to Run-D.M.C.instead of cringing. And that'sthe key to the record -- it's relaxed, utterly without pretension, and often charmingly melodic. Sure, there are some cuts that fall flat, but this record is more consistent than any of their previous albums, thanks not only to a stronger set of material, but the fact that the band is gelling as a band, which makes even the missteps easier to listen to. Best of all, the band never runs from their past, adding another great summer single to their arsenal with "When It's Over" easily the equal of "Fly" and "Every Morning", while even sampling "Every Morning" on "Ours." All this doesn't make Sugar Ray seem new, but there's charm to their performances, which make the album seen fresh, all the same. For a supposed one-hit wonder, it's remarkable that they've released their best album four records into their career.

    ''Sugar Ray'' is great!

    The new self-titled cd by Sugar Ray is awesome! Every single song on the cd sounds like it can be heard on the radio someday. ''When It's Over'', the current single, displays the band's trademark beach-like sound. This cd ranges musically. For instance, ''Disasterpiece'' is like a tribute to the Rolling Stones, and ''Just A Little'' has a little country style. There is something for everyone on this record. If you are thinking about buying it, you definitely should because it is worth the price and more!

    Big Johnson, a case of the pot calling the kettle black

    Big Johnson, before you critique someone's review for grammar and puncutation, you should check your own. You neglected to set off ''a fat guy'' with commas; it is an appositive clause. Also, it is improper to use an ''s'' on the end of ''writing'' and ''kind''; they are already in the plural form. In addition, a comma is always used after a conjuntion that separates two independent clauses. In this case, I am referring to your last set of sentences concerning HIS crediblity. How about yours? And does it really make his opinion any less valid because he had a few technical errors? Is YOUR opinion any less valid? The main purpose of writing reviews is to share people's likes and dislikes about music and books--not grade their writing as if they were in English class.

    Jack, the fat guy's editor

    Jack, the fat guy needs to proofread his writings before he posts them to the Internet. It hurts his credibility and makes you wonder what kinds of people are listening to Sugar Ray.

    Big Johnson Really Is A Dick...

    Big Johnson, once you are perfect in this world you can go around harassing those under you. He missed one key, give the guy a break.

    Great Artistic Touch

    They have blown my mind again with this hit record. A song on the cd ''When it's over'' is a great song. If they make a CD like that again they will blow past number 1 on the pop charts.
