AllMusic Review by

Sunset Valley's bright debut owes its success to the melodic smarts of frontman Herman Jolly, a gifted writer with a genuine knack for catchy tunes -- occupying a space somewhere between Guided by Voices and the Pixies, The New Speed's fuzzy guitar-pop isn't quite distinctive enough to stand out from the rest of the indie-rock pack, but its most fascinating moments suggest that this is a group well worth watching.
