  • Summary: Gil Norton (Pixies) produced this debut album for the New York-based punk/new wave outfit.

  1. As brainless butt-shaking goes, it's still a pretty good ride. [20 Jan 2006, p.71]
  2. It's hard to take the band too seriously, but the songs are debaucherous fun. [14 Jan 2006]
  3. The music on the group's debut album... feels as if it was inspired by awkward adolescent feel-up LPs by the likes of Pat Benatar and Cheap Trick.
  4. Calculated space-age power rock.
  5. Morningwood still feels like calculated fluff, even if it's calculated fluff that's mildly fun.
  6. Sure, Morningwood is trashy, enjoyable, and utterly insignificant entertainment, but so is shotgunning a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
  7. Sounds like a band mashing all the current trends and ending up with nothing.
