    As it is, Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey! works perfectly well both as a tribute to one of the most underrated musical styles ever, and as an album that's fun from beginning to end, Dirtbombs-style.

    Ooey was a bizarre concept that, with effort and care, became an effective reality.

    While bubblegum’s reliance on the hook has afforded Collins the opportunity to write some of the catchiest songs of his career, Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey!’s strongest selling point is its extraordinary attention to detail.

    Their third tribute set is exactingly detail-correct. [Dec 2013, p.90]

    An amazing all-originals simulation, mostly of teeny-bop smashes by sundry Kasenetz-Katz-produced studio concoctions (plus the Archies) circa 1967-1970.

    It's a wonderful pop album and there's a genuinely delightful innocence here. [Nov 2013, p.69]
