Mobile Estates, the major-label debut from Milwaukee-bred Citizen King, is such an obvious and lazy amalgam of late-'90s modern rock styles that it's hard to imagine anyone remotely attached to the music of Beck, Sublime or even Sugar Ray finding anything relevant or pleasing about it. Packed with turntable scratching, off-key breakbeats and acoustic shuffles (and anything else Beck beat it to five years prior), Mobile Estates also features slothful vocals and consciously hip raps reciting the joys of inertia (which, again, Beck got to first). Even the clumsy hip-hop of "Better Days (And the Bottom Drops Out)," the lead single, feels forced and faked. A pitiful result of record companies' overzealous signing of anything with a radio-secured and familiar sound. [The CD was also released with bonus tracks.]
