"A are still so obscure in the US that How Ace are Buildings isn't even sold here regularly. You have to get it as an import, and that folks, is just another example of why mainstream music is so lousy these days. Here's a a band that is begging, and I mean begging, to rule the world and producing some of the best rock music in ages (and I mean ages) in order to do it, and it's all gone criminally ignored. What makes A the best band working right now? Maybe it's because they pay so much attention to songcraft (even if their immaturity would have you think otherwise). A make sure to pack every song with hooks and melodies for every second the CD plays. There's no dead space. None. Bridges have spectacular melodies of their own ("No. 1"). There are no pointless guitar solos. Songs aren't padded for length. Lyrics are written with all the care of a Letterman monologue ("KKK? Bad Idea!"). This is band that loves what they do, and you can hear it everywhere on this record, not to mention on A's two other masterpieces, Monkey Kong and Hi Fi Serious. Pure rock energy explodes out from every corner of your stereo. God forbid someone playing music these days actually enjoy it. Listen to "Five in the Morning" and your perceptions of what popular music could and should be will change. A are here to rock. Get on board."

"A are a little known pop-punk band from down south, and as useual with british pop-punk bands (Silver Sun) they're big in Japan, and with good reason. There music is good natured and so so infectious, with songs like Foghorn, Number one and sing a long leading the way. Even the most aredent rocker will like this, its sugary yeah but not too sweet, perfect for those warm summer days. There follow up Monkey Kong is not a patch on this. Take the risk and buy this, I did and now i've got a big stupid smile on my face"
