Dirty Pictures (Part 1) was named one of Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2017 So Far and was listed as #6 on Sound Opinions' Greg Kot's Best Albums of 2017 So Far, with an "honorable mention" from his co-host Jim Derogatis.

Acclaim for Dirty Pictures (Part 1):
"...their mix of Seventies Stones (but dirtier), the New York Dolls (but tighter) and Jerry Lee Lewis (but Westerberg-ier) comes with an extra sense of bare-knuckled grit and sonic thwump to fight against the darkness." - Rolling Stone
"The 10 tracks here - including a storming cover of Prince's Controversy - find the band bridging the gap between saloon singers and barroom rockers, the results playing like Frank Sinatra fronting The Replacements." - 4 stars - Mojo
"…it's pretty much impossible to capture the vibe of full-tilt Low Cut Connie on tape... But "Dirty Pictures (Part 1)" (Contender) comes close." - Chicago Tribune
"One of the best live bands in the world right now…This is the kind of band band who can pretty much play a mini history of Rock n Roll every night they're on stage." - Sound Opinions
"The Jewish Jerry Lee Lewis." - 3 out of 4 stars - The Philadelphia Inquirer
"...Weiner hasn't renounced the power of rock & roll, nor his penchant for mischief; he isn't trumpeting a new direction, he's adding dimension to a band that already offers more than its fair share of surprise and pleasure." - 4 our of 5 stars - AllMusic
"An essential rock and roll party record." - 8/10 - Glide Magazine
"...the rock 'n' roll record of 2017 -- a 10-song ramble that swings and shuffles, dives and drives, gets gritty and serious, funny and joyous." -
