The Charms don't just claim Cheap Trick as an influence, they also appear with Cheap Trick on The Cheap Trick or Treat Halloween Ball (2006) (TV)

The Charms' disc is the kind of thing that hasn't been heard in far too long: a thoroughly convincing disc about being young, free, sexed-up, and in love with rock and roll.
-Brett Milano, The Boston Phoenix

If I owned a convertible and it was summer instead of ass-bitingly cold outside, and if I wasn't such a cranky old bastard who generally steers way clear of such happy music, I would call this [cd] damn near perfect.
-Tim Emswiler, The Noise

Totally cute and (on their Charmed, I'm Sure CD, at least) remarkably consistent Boston Nerf-metal garage, sorta like if Lava Baby added both a singer (descended from the first lady hanged in the Salem witch trials (true story!) who slavers over "boys in town" as obsessively as Christine Amphlett on the first Divinyls album and a Russian Farfisa girl named Katrina (as in "and the Waves," though only by coincidence) apparently schooled in Steve Nieve's work on Armed Forces. Subject matter: Driving with top down and radio loud, waching T. Rex and Elton John on TV, grafitti in the boys room, kissing while waiting for the train.
-Chuck Eddy, The Village Voice

Keep your eyes open for the name Ellie Vee. She has Debbie Harry's cool, Joan Jett's attitude, Gwen Stefani's sexiness and the Kate Pierson's (B-52's) ability to MAKE you have a good time. The Charms, on their first full-length CD, sing about boys and boys and rock & roll stuff--but I guess when you're just plain cool, that's all you need. And although they have more musical range than many of the bands you'd compare them to, it all still sounds, well, fucking charming! I hear their live show is even better than the record, so check
them out while the tickets are still cheap.
-E.J. Johnson, candyforbadchildren.com

More than any other frame of mind, the emotional current that runs through the Charms' material evokes adolescence, a psychic time and place of endless summers and almost mythic freedom; a teenage world of boys, rock and roll, and broken curfews, suspended for eternity in a pop song.
-Johnathan Perry, Stuff at Night

Leah

Very cool. Retro and fun!
This CD has a retro 50's kinda sound. Lead vocals are innocent with a dash of sass.. definately good driving music!

Todd

Tons of Fun!
I bought this album on a whim, and it's pretty darn good. If you want some loud, fun music, this is it. Their follow-up EP is also good; in fact, it's better!

susie

It rocked! We loved the vocals.
the cd was lots of fun to listen to. the charms are great chick rock. the vocals are are raw and sensual at the same time! we loved it.my seven year old daughter loves top down.

Bill

Definetly charmed by this band
I owned the So Pretty record before getting this one and was pleasantly suprised by the great songs on this one as well. This is a really cool band.

steve

ok, so they're not the donnas
raw, personal, and plain outright fun. the organ will make your hair stand up on end, whirl you around 360 degrees, and put a permanent smile on your face. you say you don't dance?? get 'charmed'. you'll wear out a pair of sneakers in no time. but save enough energy to pull out all the stops when 'dragonfly' starts. losing weight ain't been more fun.

Markku

Charmed, I´m sure too!
Only old angry people may not love this...I am old (I even remember when Ramones came to Finland in seventies) and angry and still loving it!

Korte

Familiar, original, loaded with energy, just plain FUN.
Bought the cd after hearing "So Pretty"...listened to it every day for a week, and drove to Greenwich Village from Boston to see them on the strength of the cd...even though they were playing down the street in 3 weeks... they rock, and they sound like they're having fun doing it. I think Ellie Vee might be the girl my mom warned me about.

Annie

Amazing
I just "discovered" the Charms about a month ago and they're now one of my fave bands! This CD is great! My very fave songs on this album are "Marianne" and "Boys Room" but they're all amazing. The songs are all so much fun! Buy this CD and see for yourself!

JULIE

FUN STUFF!
I HEARD THEIR SONG TRAGIC ON A BOSTON RADIO STATION AND REALLY LIKED IT. I TOOK A CHANCE AND BOUGHT THE CD, GOOD CHOICE. NOW I NEED TO BUY THEIR SECOND ONE. FUN STUFF!
