""See My way" stes the pace for the record. solid classic pop with a razor sharp guitar sound and adrenaline rush! "Keep Watching the Skies" is my favorite song on the record, and great pop songwriting at it's best. If you are a Dickies Fan or this is your first Dickies purchase, you will not be disappointed. This is a must for your collection. There is the classic sense of humor the Dickies are known for with "Howdy Doody in the Woodshed", "Courtin' Courtney", and "My Pop the Cop", and "Whack the Dalai Lama". Even the live classic "Nobody but me" is here! Buy it! You'll like it!"
IF STUART COULD TALK... HE'D SAY " BUY THIS ALBUM!"

"Easily the bands best record since Stukas over Disneyland. The album is kinda short considering a few of the tracks are from their last Ep and single but the new songs are just incredible. Stan Lee getting married and Leonard Graves getting sober seem to have given the band some new life and new material "He's Courtin Courtney" and "Howdy Doody in the Woodshed II" sound like "classic" Dickies tunes, while "See My Way" and "It's Huge" show that while their setlist and onstage jokes may be as old as the hills, their songs are still current and contemporary.Hope the worlds greatest punk band doesn't take 5 more years for their next record ...."
This CD is back to the roots!

"This new music starts out easy going for about five seconds but it's only the calm before the storm.After that it's an onslaught of total power not heard since their Dawn of the Dickies and Incredible Shrinking Dickies albums from the old days.Who would have thought that these bad boys from the valley could still come up with a gem like this.Every track is a 100% gold.Keep watching the skies is a new pop classic that builds into Free Willy a great song about an out of work actor that's 30 days out of rehab that just so happens to be a whale,the harmonies are flawless on this track,amazing! I could go on & on but the best thing to do is discover it all for yourself,BUY THIS NOW!!!"
The magic is depleting..

"I love The Dickies so much, and own all of their albums. I must say though this one is my least favorite. Out of the 14 songs, I like about seven. That's not bad, but in my opinion the Dickies should of made this album better, espcially for the amount of time they worked on it. The album is okay - very average when compared to The Dickies. Nothing special in the Dickies collection."

"Put this newest Dickies record on the ol' turntable set the cruise control on 33 1/3 and let 'er rip! This is punk's best band at their finest teaching kids and neighbors there was punk before Blink had numbers, before the sun came up for Green Day, or before Offspring took their first bounce. This CD starts off with a delicious mix of Vaudville sound/80's pure punk song and doesn't look back. Though each and every song is noteworthy, my personal favorite is Donut Man, and a tie for second place belongs to Whack the Dalai Lama, He's Courtin' Courtney (and just try to count it off..), and Howdy Doody in the Woodshed. But then again, maybe Nobody But Me should be #2... or Sobriety, or Marry Me Ann.. Dave Teague's guitar licks are tasty and never over-done. Mandolin in punk rock?!? Uhhh.... yep! These guys make it work! The new stuff from Stan and Leonard is so-LID !! It's Huge is a taste of original Dickies' stuff, and a fitting close to their best album since.... well, it's their best album PERIOD! No keeding... this is destined to be on future "If You Were Stranded On A Desert Island, etc" lists!"
