    It's a credit to the line-up's combustible chemistry and Setzer's twinkle-in-eye storytelling that these songs feel fresh and often thrilling. [Jul 2019, p.84]

    The Stray Cats remain a well-oiled machine, as super charged in 2019 as they were 40 years earlier. If this is their final road rally, they’re going out in style.

    Stray Cats spit out allusions to their idols and classic oldies, nod at surf rock and country mythos, play a few blues shuffles, and generally have a whale of a good time. It's notable that these high spirits are evident on a reunion album because they were largely absent on the trio's previous reunions: this time, it sounds like the group is in it for fun, and that makes a huge difference.

    If you dug them back then, you'll likely dig them now. [Jun 2019, p.93]
