    There are many (too many?) bands in 2013 playing this kind of raucous garage rock, but thanks to the perfect production, the high-quality hookage in every song, and the nuanced yet powerful performance The Jacuzzi Boys deliver, there are precious few bands doing it better.

    The album is an expertly cultivated collection of earworms that further sheds the group’s Ramones worship, instead focusing on hooky anthems that present the band’s kitsch as an accessory, rather than a focal point.

    Jacuzzi Boys is a fine garage rock record that finds the band exploring several welcome new directions.

    Not straying too far from the party vibe, Jacuzzi Boys slow things down, but still sound like fun in the sun. [Oct 2013, p.86]

    Comparisons to the Smith Westerns (“Be My Prism”) and Yuck (“Dust”) may be inevitable, but the Jacuzzi Boys retain enough of their previous humor and urgency (“Rubble”, “Hotline”) to stand on their own.

    Jacuzzi Boys is a collection of well-recorded, well-constructed, boring songs.
