"Twangin' was recorded as Rockpile was in the process of breaking up, and where the previous Rockpile collaborations were loose and rocking, Twangin' is tight and precise, as if Edmunds recorded it on his own. Only on "The Race Is On" does the record truly cut loose, and he's backed by the Stray Cats on that one. Still, there are a number of fine moments on the record, particularly in the pseudo-new wave pulse of John Hiatt's "Something Happens," the pub rock of Mickey Jupp's "You'll Never Get Me Up (In One of Those)," and the gorgeous Everly-esque "(I'm Gonna Start) Living Again if It Kills Me." The rest of the record is pleasant filler which could have used some of the old Rockpile spark. - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide"
Not his best; FAR from his worst!

"The last "real" Dave Edmunds album before he hooked up with Geoff Lynne of Electric Light Orchestra and things went horribly wrong.Some good tunes on here, but overall the album lacks the fire and passion of his earlier stuff (Get It, Tracks on Wax, Repeat When Necessary, DE7). Still, I'd rather listen to this than 90% of the other junk out there. This is American roots rock done up 100% authentic, even if he is a Welshman!"
