Although the songs may not immediately grab the listener, the lyrical and musical complexities ultimately make this album more rewarding with every listen." 4 stars

  • 4 1/2 stars: "This fine songwriting, combined with sharp performances and exquisite studio craft, make Straight Up one of the cornerstones of power-pop, a record that proved that it was possible to make classic guitar-pop after its golden era had passed."
