AllMusic Review by

The group performs frenetic power-pop in the New Wave tradition of the early-80s. Female vocals reminiscent of a chirpier Natalie Merchant, jangly guitars, bubbly harmonies, and innocent lyrics with an occasionally clever edge (Too Jung) make Mono Valley a pleasant place to drop in for a strawberry sundae. For special desert toppings, try the delicious, acoustic "The Moon Looks Nice From Here" and the impossibly effervescent "Vote Elvis."
