AllMusic Review by

In a market that has seen an influx of emo-pop, pop-punk, and power pop bands, every act has a bio that admits how hard it is to stand out amongst the crowd. And then the band swears that if the listener would just look a little deeper, he or she will find that there's something special about said band. Sonny does the same thing, yet doesn't seem to follow through on the "unique" part of the equation. Many of the riffs and the general guitar tone all sound the same as the plethora of other indie pop bands that exist. Nothing new is really put into the equation, and the only saving grace is that all the members of the band were 18 and younger in age at the time of recording, thus making it understandable how they might release an album with such an immature, although notably polished, sound. This is not a catastrophe by any means, yet in such an oversaturated music market, it seemingly serves no purpose, either.
