    Strangely enchanting.

    It is an exceedingly agreeable collection of ultra-catchy garage-pop complete with slash-and-burn guitars, wheedling psychedelic organs, gauzy ballads, dollops of Motown stomp, and loads of love laments both despairing and fidgety.

    Fox and crew have held their ground, dug in deep, and scored another win for timelessness.

    Apparently, [Craig Fox's] been stockpiling solid songs: From the slinky "Go Tell Henry" to the stinging snarl of "Underestimator," everything here is taut and lively. The lone drawback: It all sounds terribly familiar.
  5. A mind-tweaking knees-up in the second-chance saloon for Fox.

    Their derivativeness is fine when the songs are catchy....But when the pace slackens, it's hard to silence the suspicion that this is effectively a pub band that got lucky.

    In any sensible home there's always room for some no-nonsense, Nuggets-era Garage rock, however, and for that alone the impossibly titled **** pushes plenty of the right buttons. [Jan 2011, p.142]
