AllMusic Review by

Bennet's second album Street Vs. Science finds the Reading quartet pushing a hard, edgy guitar sound to the forefront and downplaying their hooks. It isn't necessarily a bad tradeoff -- they aren't particularly adept at writing solid melodies -- but Bennet doesn't kick hard enough to be a hard-rock band, nor do they have enough craft to pull off their slower, melodic. The result is a bit of a jumble that's also a textbook example of a sophomore slump.
