Sound — 6
Sort of artificial. It seems like they can't decide whether they want to be pop or metal. Not too many good songs, though Walkin' on the Sun is excellent.
Lyrics — 4
Other than a few moments of clarity the lyrics were the immature ramblings of someone who think's he's saying something important. Smash mouth definitally shows potential in this CD, it's too bad they don't achieve it in Astrolounge.
Overall Impression — 4
I'm not sure what their influences were, and I'm not sure if I want to know. They seem to be willing to do whatever it takes to get famous, but not care about their music itself. I saw Walking on the Sun, an anti-consumerism song, used in a car commercial. Nothing more need to be said.
