4/10 Clinton Staff review, 24 September 2009
I hear on good authority that there is a new band called Girls who aren't girls at all but boys!!!!!! Whatever next? I'm so confused. Anyway I'm told they are all the rage so I've been passed a copy of their new album to try to describe it to you. The first song is called 'Lust for Life' but - oh and this is incredible - it isn't the Iggy Pop song of the same name - didn't they know about it already? The singer has one of those non singing voices kind of like the guy from Subway Sect or the guy from Empire from the Sun. Its kind of harsh on the ear but could probably be ok if it had some decent songs to sing. I'm on track three and so far the album has used up every rock and roll cliche ever invented - from the drum intro to 'Be my Baby' - to hammy Elvis style pastiches. The record is unremittingly awful - I was kind of hoping that beyond the jokey amateurish styling's would be some decent songs kind of in the way that Big Star's third album at first seems like some kind of disjointed drunken mess but later reveals itself as something a lot better than that - but alas I can find nothing in here to recommend it. At times it sounds like 70's jokers Mud. Its hard writing these reviews just based on one or two listens and I don't really want to say anything along the lines of "this is one of the worst albums i've ever heard" but I would proceed with extreme caution with this one. As we approach the midway point of the album there are glimmers of improvement in a couple of tracks that recall lost 70's nearly man Dwight Twilley being force fed through a combine harvester but I have the feeling its too little too late. Currently bankrupting Fantasy Trashcan records as we speak.

2/10 Brenda Dogears Customer review, 10th October 2009

I've really not heard an album for so long  that's baffled me at the amount of deluded praise heaped on it. Limp, turgid, cliched & incredibly dull. There's so many summery freewheeling bands 10 times better than this that have languished in the dumpers, forgotten & underappreciated so why  this duo get multiple kudos from the critics escapes me. Never want to hear this lazy mess again

10/10 James Customer review,

Clint are you drunk!? Thought I needed to put a review to counter the negative one. This album is lovely. Any fans of Beat Happening, Jesus and Mary Chain, Beach Boys, Elvis Costello, SubPop, should give this a listen. LoFi, jangly, heartbreaking, summery, fun. Indie how it should be. Just give it a listen. I like it. If you dont like it, dont get angry. Just turn it off. X
