  • Summary: The debut full-length album for the quartet from Texas.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. Confident and composed, the Boys have grown into and perfected these 16 songs.
  2. Sixteen tracks make for a long album, but the set works remarkably, with the Boys’ excursions into Tex-Mex pop and blues rarely even pushing the three-minute mark.
  3. So, while their Beach Boys on mescaline tricks won't rewrite the rulebook, for reckless frivolity they'll do just fine.
  4. That the Strange Boys never actually blow their tops may prove a liability for garage-rock heads looking for more fierce, swift kicks, especially over the course of a 16-track album that would benefit from a few edits.
  5. Scratched up, indifferently tuned, coming in ghostly and pale like AM radio, Strange Boys’ first full-length has the banked fire of a slow burner.
  6. Hailing from Austin, Texas, the Strange Boys toss its hat in the new school of garage rock ring and gives the likes of Black Lips and King Khan and the Shrines a serious run for its money on its impressive debut.
  7. Mojo

    Here, the band look to the more languid nod of Spaceman 3 instead. [Jul 2009, p.98]
