AllMusic Review by

Both Sprague brothers write and sing, with Frank playing guitar and Chris playing drums. Far from being mere revivalists, this duo loves the '50s and '60s rock & roll it draws from. The brothers keep the music's character and subtle graces alive with honesty and verve, all the while infusing it with their own personalities.

Where other acts have dug through genres of decades past and ended up with sterile museum period pieces, this music bristles with the excitement of the moment. It has roots in another era and is part of a worthy tradition, but it's fully here and now. On first listen a list of the Brothers' musical heroes comes to mind--they're even distant cousins to the family of Buddy Holly. However, these sturdy songs have a way of working their way into your heart and head, making it hard to imagine you haven't known them all your life. Cool songs, great playing and singing--what more could you want?
