AllMusic Review by

Young, loud, and snotty, the Riffs merge that Dead Boys American old-school punk cockiness with the even older original Cockney-ness of English punk (even intentionally aping the Sex Pistols' "No Future" guitar riff at the conclusion of "Down The Street") for a shade over a half-hour of pogo-inducing retro-enjoyment. For a dead horse, it gallops quite nicely, and best yet, you can tell Portland pop-punk posse doesn't care if you disagree.
