    I saw Stoltz live opening for the Raconteurs last July. I have been listening to this album ever since.

    wobbly singing, gorgeous melodies, sloppy production, beautiful harmonies, everything you want in a record!

    Although the refrences are obvious, beach boys, velevt underground, john lennon Stoltz has put together an incredible album filled with sunshine humour and killer melodies. I love the guitar playing on this album, especially on my favourite track 'words' another key track is 'summer's easy feeling' which has the best melody of the album. I would recommend this to Although the refrences are obvious, beach boys, velevt underground, john lennon Stoltz has put together an incredible album filled with sunshine humour and killer melodies.

  1. There's nothing really new or earth-shattering about this album, but that's not a prerequisite for great rock & roll.

    Retro lo-fi pop-rock, dressed in pounded parlor-room piano chords and psych-folk filigree. [10 Feb 2006, p.134]

    It sounds like he had a lot of fun making this record. [9 Feb 2006, p.62]
