AllMusic Review by

If MXPX or the Queers went back in time to the 1950s, this is what they would sound like. Good harmonies, songs about girls, and catchy-as-hell tunes make the 13 songs on this album a surefire hit for fans of the pop-punk genre. Utilizing some extra instruments such as keyboards and added percussion helps flesh out the sound to the point where even some listeners who are not pop-punk fans could get into this. While some of the sound can be redundant, fans of the genre probably won't mind. And for a genre whose drawbacks include redundancy, this is a surprisingly fresh angle to take on the sound.
