All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
"What happened to the golden days? Was it just another teenage craze?" So asks Robert Schwartzman on Eureka, Rooney's third record in seven years. Schwartzman and company first appeared in 2003, armed with a summery debut album whose songs bridged the gap between their parents' record collections and their schoolmate's iPods. The music referenced the past without ignoring the present, and the fact that Rooney's members were all great looking -- Schwartzman and drummer Ned Brower even worked as part-time actors -- helped them stand out in L.A., a city crowded with retro-chic musicians and aspiring rock stars.

"What happened to the golden days? Was it just another teenage craze?" So asks Robert Schwartzman on Eureka, Rooney's third record in seven years. Schwartzman and company first appeared in 2003, armed with a summery debut album whose songs bridged the gap between their parents' record collections and their schoolmate's iPods. The music referenced the past without ignoring the present, and the fact that Rooney's members were all great looking -- Schwartzman and drummer Ned Brower even worked as part-time actors -- helped them stand out in L.A., a city crowded with retro-chic musicians and aspiring rock stars.
