  1. There's a fine line between vintage rock revision and progressive insight--Hammond Jr. has mastered the balance. [Aug 2008, p.170]
  2. Working more closely with his band, Hammond has given his songs more dimension, and the ambition.
  3. 70
    It's another solid collection that echoes his day job from an artful distance.
  4. ¿Cómo Te Llama? is best when the songs seem to shake and quaver within their candy-coated shells; fittingly, that’s when they’re at their Strokes-iest.
  5. 60
    None of it is in any sense inspired, and Hammond tries his hand at that Swiss-finishing-school skank once too often, but many tracks here could comfortably make it onto First Impressions of Earth.
  6. On his second solo record, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. hedges his bets with familiar guitar-pop exercises alongside tracks that find him stretching into uncharacteristic territory.
  7. 40
    Hammond, Jr. paints an awfully pretentious portrait of a dude caught playing with his best friend’s b-sides.

    Great album, a great follow up to his first album. If I had to pick my favorite song in the album it would have to be "GFC" The only negative is that some of the songs are not as brilliant but still most of it is very listenable. Expand
