Eat My Heart Out is the debut album by pop punk band The Dollyrots. It was released on 28 September 2004 on Lookout Records.

Release history[edit]

The album was released on 28 September 2004 as a CD on Panic Button Records/Lookout! Records and as an LP on Dionysus Records. In April 2010, Dionsysus Records in conjunction with the band re-released the album on vinyl.[1] 500 copies of the album were pressed on blue and white opaque vinyl with a download coupon which included the complete album plus three previously unreleased B sides from the album sessions.[2]

Reception[edit]

Rick Anderson on Allmusic gave the album a positive review, awarding it four out of five stars.[3] Anderson stated: "The Dollyrots are certainly nothing new -- no genre-transgressing experiments, no incongruous fusions, no mind-expanding instrumental solos or side-long suites. Just 13 tight, compact, sweet, and crunchy bursts of punky power pop".[3] Anderson also praised singer Kelly Ogden, saying that "her voice is clear and sharp, and her delivery is by turns sweet and snotty."[3] Hunter Felt on PopMatters wrote "What Eat My Heart Out does have are elements missing in most paint-by-numbers pop-punk: a sense of true fun, not the forced and contrived "fun" of the Blink-182 wannabes, and an infectious energy", adding that the band "actually seem to be able to translate their well-regarded live shows onto a disc without sacrificing the spontaneity their music requires".[4]
