    Most of the songs clock in at under three minutes, and the Sunsets definitely know how to make the most of the time they've chosen to take.

    It's the kind of warm summer record you put on without much thought, and that's a large part of its charm.

    Fab follow-up to 2009's Tomorrow Is Alright from the San Franciscan collective. [Sept. 2011, p. 95]

    With Hit After Hit, he's made 11 more charming and knowingly primitive bursts of sunny fuzz. He's got plenty more left in him.

    Hit After Hit doesn't achieve its titular goal completely and totally. It does come fairly close, though, and makes strong cases for the tunefulness of San Francisco's new garage music, Smith as a songwriter, and the appeal of something done straightforward if also done well.

    Hit After Hit is a simple, charming, not-a-note-wasted lark of the kind that seems to be in short supply these days... except when it's flowing from Sonny Smith's pen.

    Hit After Hit still features lots of reverb and wry, repetitive lyrics, but the production is more sophisticated and subtle. [May 2011, p.86]
