Published September 11, 2003.Alien Ant FarmTruant(Universal)Unless you were living under a rock in 2001, you heard Alien Ant Farm’s cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.” That unlikely hit managed to overshadow everything the SoCal band had accomplished up to that point. But AAF has returned with the aptly titled follow-up Truant. The record shines best when AAF slows the pace and relies on hooks and melody rather than concussive force. Once “Glow” is unleash- ed on the masses, people will understand that AAF is not just a novelty act. —Trevor Savory
