AllMusic Review by

The Kit Kats' debut album included most of the tracks that showed up on their first Jamie singles, among them standouts like "Let's Get Lost on a Country Road," "That's the Way," and "Cold Walls," as well as a remake of Phil Phillips' "Sea of Love." This wasn't among the most progressive rock available in the summer of 1967, but it was often pleasurable pop/rock, to be sure, with its combination of classical-influenced melodies and keyboards, hazy orchestral production, and high vocal leads & harmonies. Filling out the disc were several covers of varying quality, from a good version of the much-covered Carter-Lewis song "Funny How Love Can Be" (a natural for the group's repertoire) and a faithful version of B. Bumble & the Stingers' "Nut Rocker" to the less edifying a cappella rendition of "My Favorite Things" and a routine run-through of "Cotton Fields." The version of "Won't Find Better Than Me" here, incidentally, is not the original one on their 1966 Jamie single, but a lusher remake that is as good or better than its predecessor. All of the LP's cuts have been reissued on the double-CD Kit Kats compilation It's About Time.
