AllMusic Review by

Sissy Bar continues Ed Ackerson's moderately long history of turning out little-known but rather great pop records. The album strides a long way from the dream-pop missteps of 27 Various, opting instead for a stretched-out, fuzzy rock sound that continually surprises with interesting turns and consistently original constructions. Even better, it contains all of the head-nodding, hooky melodies with which Ackerson is so adept ("National Soccer Day").
