Reviewer William Dart of New Horizons Radio New Zealand gives a mixed review of "California Son". I did like William talking about the mixed gender roles of Morrissey singer love songs from a female protagonist on the album. Review can be listened to online or downloaded.

The British singer Morrissey is not always Mr Sad; he can occasionally – very occasionally – deliver smiley-faced pop. William Dart listens to his new album of covers California Son.
