AllMusic Review by

Finding the Perfect Girl is an exemplary slice of North Carolina-style indie rock, falling very much in line with the work of regional heroes Archers of Loaf and Superchunk, but injecting a far more melodic sense into its speedy constructions. While Tinsel's later album Quit While You're Ahead has the band finding its own voice and attempting more original structures, Finding the Perfect Girl is still a solid introduction, using the anthemic indie rock of the regional scene to great pop effect.
