"This less-than-half-hour album is timeless - a Delorean for the ears"
(4.5/5 stars - Brendan Telford - TheMusic)

"Standouts include (You're) Blind Baby, which recalls early Mental As Anything; the perversely catchy Everyone's Everyone's and We Won The War. That said, there isn't a dud track."
(4/5 stars - Daniel Johnson - The Courier Mail)

"The tone encapsulates everything that I consider to be truly 'Australian'."
(8.6/10 - Jonny Nail - Polariods of Androids)

“With shades of David Berman... and Bob Pollard... Dollar Bar are tight songwriters, well-rehearsed and economical, and Paddington Workers Club is just a very good record.”
(Jake Cleland - The Vine)

"A fine, cohesive record that wears the words ‘slacker’ and ‘guitar’ on its sleeve like a Superchunk fan wears a homemade iron-on patch of the album artwork ‘No Pocky For Kitty’ on their denim jacket."
(Ryan Saar - SoundlySounds blog)

"Crunchy garage rock and blues rock with plenty of fuzz and plenty of pop hooks."
(Scott Galloway - When You Motor Away blog)

"This is a pop band of significant talent despite their played-down demeanour and rough-hewn sound. May the second phase be a extended one."
(Ian Rogers - Birchwood Library blog)

"Diff’rent 4 Gurls is a scuzzy, boozy, bluesy bit of indie rock — the sound of dark, sweaty basement clubs, and dive bars that reek of sweat, spilled beer, and desperation."
(William Helms - Joy of Violent Movement blog)

"The Jonathan Richman-via-Custard slacker-pop whimsy of Diff’rent for Gurls charms you off your feet and into a smelly share house bedroom."
(Patrick Emery - Beat Magazine)
