AllMusic Review by

Too cute for words. The Maulies are all about sweet, fun-filled pop. Jaded music critics could easily pigeonhole this as "girlie music," but that would be too easy, not to mention insulting. On Holiday With is a delightful debut from this Austin foursome as they gently lay down their sweet melodies and simple guitars. On top of their Kinks cover of "Gotta Get the First Plane Home" are the wittiest lyrics ever on "Rude Limey." The bitter, love lost follows: "He's always playing cruel jokes/I wish he'd get his green card revoked," and "We use to call him our favorite British import/But now we call him Satan's cohort." Lesson learned: break the heart of the Maulies and they'll write a mean song about you.
