While there is nothing groundbreaking in this recording, the 1950s songs that are chosen (penned by likes of Buddy Holly and members of his group) are played "commendably", keeping close to the original versions with restraint. The album received less praise from other critics.
Greg Prato of Allmusic refers to the album as "a much needed antidote to the computer/software enhanced state of popular music" and "a worthwhile listen for die-hard fans to hear Lemmy tackle covers of some of his favorite standards". Bob Gottlieb wrote in Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange that the band "play some damn good music" and that the songs are "not filled with the fireball frenetic energy that can often make Rockabilly about as pleasant as the sound of a dentists drill nowadays". However, Paul Jordan Sr. wrote the album "sounds like karaoke from a biker's bar! Bad songs sung by bad voices".
