AllMusic Review by

An interesting, obscure indie pop/rock effort. The low-key musings of Shows are well-suited to the low-budget production, which is sometimes too thin, but generally appropriate. Those who like loving reference points to rock's past will like "Loving Things," aone of the best modern Buddy Holly pastiches, and "On a Mission," an absolute ringer for the Kinks circa the early '70s.
