AllMusic Review by

Immensely popular (in Australia) debut platter from Beach-Boys-down-under features light hooks and catchy riffs with just a hint of the darkness to come. Highlights include the singles "Downhearted" and "Beautiful People", but James Reyne's automobile accident-inspired "Indisposed" is the strongest suggestion of what lay below the surface on these delicate pop structures. Boys remained on the Aussie pop charts for 104 weeks and 36 minutes.
