About this album

Based on their infectious summer single “Walking on the Sun,” it was easy to dismiss Smash Mouth as a one-hit wonder, since it was hard to believe that they’d be able to top that sun-kissed delight that was easily the highlight of their debut, Fush Yu Mang. Perhaps that’s why their second record, Astro Lounge, feels like such a surprise, since it carries through on the promise of “Walking on the Sun. ” Like Sugar Ray — a fellow veteran of the ska-punk underworld who delivered a follow-up that owed more to melodic pop and new wave than its hit predecessor — Smash Mouth have created an album that is unabashedly fun, catchy, and lightweight, the ideal music for a car radio or a day at the beach. It’s true that nothing on Astro Lounge is as immediately grabbing as “Walking on the Sun,” but every song shares the same party-ready mentality and irresistible, trashy AM-radio vibe. No, nothing on Astro Lounge is particularly deep, but it’s all good fun and it never disappoints — which is quite a remarkable feat, since one-hit wonders rarely deliver a second album that betters their first. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

    It's a rare occurrence when a band experiences a creative and commercial peak at the same time. This is one such album. [2]

    @silfy it wasn't their first album. This album was decent, but i'll always hold a fonder appreciation for Fush Yu Mang.

    I spent a week in Florida with only this album to listen to, whenever I hear a track from it I feel like I'm in Florida.

    I think this album kind of has a London Calling vibe going for it, multiple music styles that were brought together pretty flawlessly.

    I rediscovered this album after having it on my shelf for 8 years, it's even better than I remembered it; especially Fallen Horses.

    First album bought from a store (Big Willie Style from a kid at sleepaway camp.) I bought the CD for All Star and had my perceptions on music forever changed by songs like Waste, Satellite, and Stoned to name a few. The whole album (yes, including All Star) is just incredible and never grows old or tired after repeated listenings over the years.

    Boy, this really marks our generation, doesn't it? This was the first album I bought as well. Rediscovering Smash Mouth is a lot of fun.
