    Shannon and the Clams combine retro pop with early punk rock, producing a rather unique sound.

    There are catchy guitar hooks and all-round pleasant melodies which make this album stand out for me.

    There's a certain defiant spirit and explosive danger that noises its way through the "retro," thumbing its nose and daring you to call it just kitsch. [Jun-Jul 2013, p.97]

    Dreams In The Rat House isn’t as diverse or ambitious as its predecessor, Sleep Talk, but it shows an increasing ability to balance winsome harmonies, raucous drumming and jangly guitar riffs while maintaining the unvarnished punk quality that makes them irresistible.
