AllMusic Review by

Austin, Texas, teen phenom Jenny Wolfe released her first album, JENNY WOLFE AND THE PACK, at the ripe old age of 13. Three years later and now a high school sophomore, Wolfe returns with another crisp album of guitar-heavy power pop in the tradition of Fountains of Wayne or Redd Kross, mixed with some of Marshall Crenshaw's rootsier leanings. Highlights include a pair of songs Wolfe wrote with producer Freddy Steady Krc (a longtime fixture on the Austin garage scene), the title track and "Twisted Smile," and a thematically appropriate cover of Big Star's "Thirteen."
