    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.

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

    Too Young To Be In Love leans less heavily on pervy wisecracks, with fantastic results.

    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.

    The 10 songs on Too Young to Be in Love are exuberant snapshots of rock music's earliest years, bursting with teenage romance and allusions to oral sex, but they are also very faithful ones.

    Hunx And His Punx are happily basic, and that has resulted in a half-hour of impeccable golden-age pop, but there's certainly no great cosmic significance here. Yet it's still easy to get excited about a half-hour of impeccable golden-age pop, and in that mindset it's well worth a few spins.

    Subtlety is clearly not a strong suit here.

    Too Young To Be In Love captures the primal pulse of vintage late-'50s/early -'60s radio bubblegum with a loving touch. [Apr 2011, p.115]

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

    Bogart has a nasal, pop punk voice, which works well in this genre. The girls have beautiful full voices. Their interplay is dynamic sometimes, but at others the disparity shifts the focus onto the thinness of the songwriting.

    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.
