    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.

    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. The fact that Hammond can’t actually sing that well is rendered practically obsolete on this album; his hazy drawl may not be the strongest in the world, but it suits these songs just fine.
  6. Overall it’s a solid sophomore effort, and certainly good enough to tide Strokes fans over until that band’s next release.

    ¿Cómo Te Llama? is not a bad record, just so unrelentingly average that you wonder how in this age of music biz recession, it could be worth anyone's 14.99. [Aug 2008, p.112]

    Great song writing, Albert Hammond Jr proves to us again that he is worth listening to. Love the Strokes-esque sound he has going on in thisGreat song writing, Albert Hammond Jr proves to us again that he is worth listening to. Love the Strokes-esque sound he has going on in this album. Tracks like "In My Room" and "Bargain of A Century" really remind me of the strokes. But he also does have his own sound with tracks like "Spooky Couch" and "Gfc". Great album

    Favorite Track(s): In My Room, Spooky Couch,

    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 negativeGreat 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
