“The Phantom Cowboys have charm, style, irony and wit in their songs and of the 11 tracks here – all of which are Cowboy originals – I can’t find one I don’t like…The fact is, buy this album and I guarantee you’ll all be raucously singing these tracks in the back of a coachin 30 years time as part of a pensioners piss-up day out. Yes, the songs are that catchy. Sarcasm, meets psycho[billy] with a touch of sophisticated smooth swing. As debut albums go, it’s one to be proud of.”
– Deathrow Database, July 1999
