AllMusic Review by

A band with three songwriters and four singers, Hubba plies punk, post-punk, folk-rock, and country. The band excelled at it all: "Hangin' Around" perfectly captures the indie-rock spirit of the times; "New White Wings" is psychedelic, "Need to Know" has that back-porch Stones sound, and "Lullaby" is just plain Velvety. "Golden Gate Park," a punk rock song mocking hippies, went down well in San Francisco circa 1987, but the appeal of the Cat Heads' strange humor and multi-genre aesthetic was lost on the rest of the world.
