AllMusic Review by Kembrew McLeod
A quick scan of the words ("cretin," "psychopath," "rehab," etc.) in the song titles makes it clear that these guys are coming straight out of Ramones-land. And that's just fine, because Move Back Home demonstrates that the Queers are getting better and better at channeling the black leather jacket-clad spirit of their punk forefathers. They, of course, still haven't grown up -- Joe still sings about not having a girlfriend and acting like a jerk, but no one else can do it better, save for the Mr. T Experience's Dr. Frank. The best demonstration of how good they've gotten at crafting great pop songs is the fact that it's hard to tell which song is a Brian Wilson cover and which one is an original.
