AllMusic: “Stray Cats debut album came hot on the heels of the
two hit singles “Runaway Boys” and “Rock This Town,” both energy
filled rockabilly songs that hearkened back to the 1950s era of pure
rock and roll with an updated, clean ’80s sound highlighted by the
prominent double bass playing of Lee Rocker and drumming of Slim
Jim Phantom.”
