AllMusic Review by

With albums like this, who needs friends? On this debut, one of the-best written pop albums of the '90s, Finn Moore Gerety and Carrick Moore Gerety sing like birds, both falling somewhere between Paul McCartney and Squeeze's Glenn Tilbrook. "Nine Straight Lines" kicks off the album, and it's a non-stop popfest from then on. "Pop Phenomenon," "Florida," "Number Ones" and "Stay With Her" are just a few more gems that fill up this aural feast. "Love In My Heart"'s verses have a cute new-wavey cod-reggae beat, but then the chorus kicks into a Badfinger-esque rocker and takes this track into the stratosphere. If the Spongetones are the pop world's Beatles, then the Push Kings are its Badfinger. Stunning.
