AllMusic Review by

Despite the obvious influence of American Music Club -- AMC alums Mark Eitzel and Bruce Kaphan both make cameos, and the group's "Big Night" is covered -- Cool for August are unable to match the honesty or atmospheric intensity of their heroes; ironically, the inclusion of "Big Night" only underscores the relative weakness of the group's own material, a collection of standard alt-rock performances fronted by Peter Murphy-esque vocals.
