AllMusic Review by

With the release of Bros' first single, "When Will I Be Famous?," the answer was not so much when (immediately) but how long (not very). Slick production and even slicker marketing saw Bros rule the U.K. for two spectacular years during the late '80s -- when the dust settled the disposable pop left behind had lost much of its fizz. Matt Goss' delicate vocals coat the light and highly danceable "When Will I Be Famous?," which stands out as an excellent example of late-'80s pop, along with the number one U.K. smash "I Owe You Nothing." Plenty of frothy fun covers the few low spots, equally matched by the overall lack of depth. The closing ballad, "Cat Among the Pigeons," hints at a more rounded talent, but Push makes for far better dancing than listening -- an album that will be most enjoyed by those who remember Bros' short-lived halcyon days.
