    High Risk Behaviour is about as enjoyable as the sound of bored small-town kids thrashing around with guitars gets. [May 2020, p.107]

    The Chats say they don't try too hard while writing lyrics, but in this case, the simpler and less ambiguous the better. High Risk Behaviour is a slam to the skull with each stomp of the kick drum.

    In classic punk rock tradition, many of the songs on High Risk Behaviour clock in at well under two minutes; meaning that it never drags.

    If you’re looking for a short, fun thrill from a gang of likeable oiks with all the grace of a one-legged camel, talk to The Chats.

    It never gets deep. ... It's stupid, daft, and no wonder that when Josh Homme's looking for a night of goofy escapism he goes to see The Chats. [May 2020, p.26]

    Very fun punk-rock-esq album that doesn't take itself seriously at all, but for this, thats a good thing. It's pretty short so it doesn't takeVery fun punk-rock-esq album that doesn't take itself seriously at all, but for this, thats a good thing. It's pretty short so it doesn't take much to listen to, but nevertheless it is very fun all the way through. Expand
