  1. They’ve crafted an album that stands on familiar rock ground but isn’t at all stock.

    As guitarist Russell Marsden steps aside to let bassist Emma Richardson sing, it's less White Stripes, more Brody Dale, but momentum is maintained. [Oct 2009, p.91]
  3. It comes a little unstuck by the end of course, but overall this is a delight, going bump in the night in more ways than one.
  4. From start to finish, you might think you’re listening to six different albums, but chances are solid that you’ll like at least a couple of those.
  5. They're better when they throw off the straightjacket of cool. [Oct 2009, p.107]
  6. Baby Darling Doll Face Honey is a promising debut from a band with more than one talented songwriter and more than a few ideas rolling around their collective heads.
  7. of the songs on Baby Darling Doll Face Honey have forgettable lyrics, bland, fuzz-wah guitar noodling, and an overwhelming sense of melodrama.

    Outstanding album. Get past the immediate White Stripes references...and these guys are better than them. An outstanding debut.
