We gave it a D+

Another Everclear album, another batch of ersatz Nirvana rockers reflecting on a drug-addled past — ”Sunshine (That Acid Summer)” — and family dysfunction. ”I wish I could see my television family waiting for me,” Art Alexakis wails on ”TV Show,” an update of 2000’s ”Wonderful” by way of Pink’s ”Family Portrait.” The rest of the set feels just as reworked and borrowed. What’s new is that the band has never seemed so stale.
