  1. Best Little Secrets Are Kept pays homage to the fairer gender with punchy glam-rock guitars, winking double entendres and Hill's swaggering Rocky Horror Picture Show-style vocals.
  2. The Best Little Secrets Are Kept is loaded with a raft of inspired songs that burst out of your speakers like they were on fire, mixing the sparkle of the best glam rock, the low-down crunch of the best of classic rock bands like the Stones, and the direct lyrical approach of poets like David Lee Roth or... Bon Scott.
  3. While Louis XIV references the '70s, theirs is no Jet; this band's style is more of piss-take than any cut-and-paste plagiarism. [#9]
  4. Nicely mimics the timbre of Tony Visconti-ville circa '71-'74.
  5. 60
    Alas, when their feisty glam racket starts to repeat itself towards the end, the joke wears a little thin. [Nov 2005, p.112]
  6. If anything, we should reward them for reminding us that glam rock is dead, and so be it.
  7. Tasteless Rolling Stones apers rip off an entire decade of rock music.
