  • Summary: Singer/hairdresser/bon vivant, Hunx, has made a name for himself as an out-and-proud, teen-from-Mars crooner from the band Gravy Train!!!! and now resurrects the upbeat post-rock sounds of the fifties and sixties with the first full-length Hunx & His Punx record.

    Thanks to the hooky and familiar songs, the exciting performances, and the perfectly executed aesthetic, Too Young to Be in Love is simply and truly a great rock & roll record.

    It's only rock'n'roll but you'll probably like it.

    There is real sorrow and feeling amongst all the fun and the record will hopefully see Hunx gain some of the attention that is way over due.

    Sonically speaking, Hunx And His Punx have hit on an essentially 'vintage' sound without being terribly authentic.

    More than that, it sounds like Bogart is working out some heavy things on Too Young to Be in Love; it's just a bummer that the discomfort is put upon the listener as well.

    They produce strong enough tunes to make their act more than just a celebration of kitsch. [May 2011, p.88]

    While the slog through the mostly interchangeable mid-tempo, spoken-verse tracks on the first twenty two minutes of the album is a lot of saminess to deal with, a couple genuine pleasures await anyone patient enough to make it through to the album's final moments.
