    Brilliant debut. One of the most fun albums I have listened to in a while. Every song is a stand out. I have had this disc for 3 years now and it is still one of my favorites to play all the way through.

  1. There is much to like about Cookies: Jackie McKeown has a perfect yelping voice to pull off the sarcastic, knowing and sassy lyrical pose, the band is tight and raw but able to rein things in on funky tunes like 'Arcade Precinct,' and Butler keeps things quite simple and gets a remarkably punchy sound out of the trio.
  2. Most of Cookies proceeds in similar fashion, with crunchy, showy riffs supporting clever hooks in the name of two-and-a-half minute pop nuggets that the late John Peel would have likely appreciated.
  3. The whole midsection of the album is giddily enjoyable.
