Can you believe we almost made it through the summer without a Smash Mouth release? Don't fret, though—the band, along with co-producer Karl Derfler (Foo Fighters, No Doubt), returns with its fourth Interscope album, "Get the Picture?" Smash Mouth has made a surprisingly steady career out of beach-friendly top 10 hits like "Walkin' on the Sun" and "All Star." While such tracks captured a high energy level from the group, there is a little less spring in Smash Mouth's step this time around. Lead single "You Are My Number One" sounds like it was recorded using a keyboard programmed to play a generic reggae beat. But such tracks as "Hang On" and "Fun" prove Smash Mouth still has the spark to be the mighty party band we have come to appreciate.—MGP
